Rey Mysterio Returns At The Royal Rumble And The Crowd Goes Absolutely Crazy

When the iconic mask of Rey Mysterio appeared on screen as "Booyaka, booyaka - 619" echoed around the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, thousands of grown men and women just couldn't contain their excitement.

Mysterio, who returned to the ring for the first time since 2014, entered the Royal Rumble match at number 27 and proceeded to deliver some classic moves on superstars such as The Miz and Roman Reigns.

It was the ultimate throwback.

He even produced a 619 to the delight of 17,629 fans at the sold out arena.

What a moment.

It was a packed card that continued to surprise throughout the night, and perhaps the biggest shock was the appearance of Ronda Rousey.

Speaking to ESPN about the move to WWE, Rousey said: "This is my life now. First priority on my timeline for the next several years. This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt.

"When I first met with Triple H, I told him, 'There are other things I can do with my time that'll make way more money, but I won't enjoy nearly as much."
