From the Archives: Rey Mysterio vs. Kurt Angle, SummerSlam 2002

SummerSlam took place last night (duh), but it wasn't the only high profile event to happen around the world of wrestling. AAA's Triplemania 21 took to the Internet airwaves to broadcast head to head with WWE's signature summer event. While Rey Mysterio is still technically a WWE-contracted employee, he made an appearance via video at the event last night. WWE is holding the legendary performer hostage by extending his contract against his will due to time missed for injury. Anyway, since their relationship seems to be coming to a tumultuous end, I will bring you back to a time when it was just beginning and was less rocky. Mysterio's debut match in a WWE ring took place at SummerSlam 12 years ago against Kurt Angle. Watch it. Love it.
