Mysterio Treats Velez To Exciting Show

Courtesy of Major Indoor Soccer League's California Cougars:

Stockton, CA - Nov. 5, 2007 - Rey Mysterio Jr. of World Wrestling Entertainment, and cousin to Cougar midfielder Eduardo Velez, put on a thrilling show for the Stockton Arena on Sunday, November 4, 2007.

Velez sat ringside with his family during the event and watched as Mysterio defeated WWE superstars the "Great Kahli" and "Finlay" in a tag team bout. Mysterio teamed with fellow WWE superstar Batista.

Velez visited with Mysterio before the event in the backstage area. He gave Mysterio a version of his own uniform and a customized Cougars jersey in honor of the wrestling superstar. The customized jersey read "Mysterio" on the back with the number "619" for Mysterio's finishing maneuver. Due to WWE promotional regulations, Mysterio was not able to wear the Cougars jersey during the match.

Mysterio did use the Cougar jersey to help gain the support of the local fans by wearing it before and after the event in autograph sessions. He wore his Velez jersey before the event and the customized Mysterio jersey in the post match autograph session.

The California Cougars return to the playing field on Saturday November 10 against the expansion Monterrey La Raza at the Stockton Arena. Tickets can be purchased online at www.californiacougars.net or by phone by calling (209) 373-1550.
