At the age of 18 with his Uncle by his side Oscar Gutierrez officially got his first big break in wrestling as he was apart Mexico's newest wrestling company Asistencia Asesoría y Administración aka AAA. This company actually was founded in 1992 by Antonio Pena when Pena broke away from CMLL to form his own promotion. Rey's Uncle who was the original Rey Mysterio helped Rey get a spot in AAA and establish himself in wrestling as during Rey's first few years with AAA he would actually team with his Uncle. During his time in AAA Rey would establish what in a way would become somewhat of a career long feud with Juventud Guerrera and would actually team his Uncle against Juventud and Juvi's dad Fuerza Guerrera.
Much like his Uncle before him Rey would carry on the Mysterio name in AAA winning the Mexican National Trios Title on one occasion and winning the Mexican National Welterweight title also on one occasion. Though his achievements in AAA don't provide the longest list he still became one of the top stars within the company and would go on to be inducted into the AAA Hall of Fame in 2007.
For the last year at least Rey has been wrapped in a contract dispute with his now former employer and Rey is free and clear to do whatever or go wherever he wants to. It didn't take long for Rey to make up his mind as a few days ago he chose to make his return to AAA the same company he got his first big break in and the same company he hasn't worked for in almost 20 years. Rey will be making his return to AAA at the May 23rd event titled "International Tournament of Lucha Libre." It seems like this show is some sort of trios tournament with AAA teams vs trios from around the world sort of like Chikara's King of Trios, but maybe a little different.
