Earlier today Shane Douglas’ Extreme Rising revealed that the new Hijo de Rey Misterio would be debuting with the promotion on the 12/29 event in Philadelphia, PA. Hijo de Rey Misterio is actually the 2nd wrestler to work under the name and is not actually Rey Misterio Sr.’s son (while the bigger original Hijo de Rey Misterio is), but he an extremely talented, fast high flyer much more in the mold of Rey Misterio Jr. than the original Hijo de Rey Misterio was.
