A brutal suplex to Mysterio and if you look closely, you can see Ultimo’s sharp toothed grin on his alternate mask design.

Rey Mysterio Wins WWE Championship - WWE RAW [7/25/2011]
Watching CM Punk’s Best in the World documentary made me think about how they really fucked over Rey Mysterio during “The [WWE] Summer of Punk”. Mysterio held the highest title in professional wrestling for less than an episode of RAW before having John Cena beat him for the championship. The CM Punk documentary talks about how disappointed he was whenever he won the World Heavyweight Championship (for the first time) but was written out of a PPV match to defend it. Due to the match being a Championship Scramble, the title was awarded to Chris Jericho without really giving Punk a chance to catch-on.
Given the fact that Punk doesn’t have the years or the mileage of a Rey Mysterop on him, I can only wonder how depressing it must’ve been for Rey Rey to hear, “Yeah, you’ll win the title tonight after a eight-man tournament, building you up…but Cena’s gonna walk away tonight with the belt so that he and Punk can continue their thing.”
No respect at all for the 619.

I’d be surprised if half of these guys actually wrestle on the show. More TV rights fees!
Summer Slam 2012
Yellow is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.
Yellow produces a warming effect, arouses cheerfulness, stimulates mental activity, and generates muscle energy. Bright, pure yellow is an attention getter, which is the reason taxicabs are painted this color. When overused, yellow may have a disturbing effect; it is known that babies cry more in yellow rooms. Yellow is seen before other colors when placed against black; this combination is often used to issue a warning. In heraldry, yellow indicates honor and loyalty. Later the meaning of yellow was connected with cowardice.
Men usually perceive yellow as a very lighthearted, ‘childish’ color, so it is not recommended to use yellow when selling prestigious, expensive products to men – nobody will buy a yellow business suit or a yellow Mercedes. Yellow is an unstable and spontaneous color, so avoid using yellow if you want to suggest stability and safety. Light yellow tends to disappear into white, so it usually needs a dark color to highlight it. Shades of yellow are visually unappealing because they loose cheerfulness and become dingy.
Dull (dingy) yellow represents caution, decay, sickness, and jealousy.
Light yellow is associated with intellect, freshness, and joy (color-wheel-pro.com).

What a random selection of professional wrestlers.
