Lucha-libre legend Rey Mysterio spoke with BT Sport recently to discuss his intense rivalry with current WWE United States champion Andrade. Mysterio compares the 30-year old El Idolo to the late Eddie Guerrero, and believes that he's destined for superstardom if he continues working as hard as he does.

There's definitely a chemistry there that I feel I had with Eddie, when I was feuding against Eddie. Our backgrounds [and] our style [are] very similar being both second generation so that has a lot to do with the connection we have in the ring," Mysterio said. To be able to think like we're on the same page, it's very rare that you get that. I've been very blessed throughout my career to have had that connection with many: Kurt Angle, Edge, RVD, Eddie, Batista. With Andrade there's something there that just clicks. That's very unique, and he's the next top superstar in this company. If he keeps working hard like he has been, I just don't see why not that's just where he's destined to be.

Mysterio also opens up about stars like Andrade and Ricochet telling him that he was their greatest influence, calling their respect mutual.

Mysterio competed against Angel Garza on last night's episode of Raw from Salt Lake City. He would pick up the victory by disqualification after Garza DDT'd him on the exposed arena floor. He would need assistance to the back to help sell the angle. Rumors have circulated that Mysterio is being written off due to a wellness policy violation, but that has yet to be confirmed.
