Rey Mysterio officially returned to the WWE earlier this month and in his short time back has already had dream bouts against Shinsuke Nakamura and Andrade Almas. Like those two competitors, there are now a wealth of superstars who entered the WWE fold during Mysterio's three year absence. As such, there are multiple potential opponents for the legendary star that he's never faced before -- from Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens to cruiserweight standouts Kalisto and Buddy Murphy.
Interestingly, however, there are some new WWE stars that Rey previously had a chance to wrestle during his three years away. Mysterio traveled the world, competing in the United Kingdom, for AAA in Mexico, a one-time match for New Japan, and even wrestled in the main event of the historic ALL IN pay-per-view. During those travels, the legendary luchador faced a handful of current WWE stars -- including the company's reigning champion, AJ Styles.
With that, here's a list of five dream bouts you may not know already took place outside of WWE, as well as ten exciting potential matches for Rey Mysterio that fans have never seen before.
