The new Millennium saw a truck load of arrivals into the WWE and professional wrestling.
As broadcast coverage and wages increased, the interest in becoming the next superstar was huge.
Here’s our 15 most successful WWE wrestlers who first entered the ring in the 2000’s.
15. Rey Mysterio
‘The Biggest Little Man’ has shown us that its mind over matter and size doesn’t hold him back.
Mysterio has racked up a WWE title, two World Heavyweight titles, two Intercontinental titles and four tag titles since making his debut in 2002.
His feud with Eddie was always a classic to watch but his most memorable moment came when he won the 2006 Royal Rumble from the number 2 entry spot.
