During the clip that was shared on social media, a FOX Sports broadcaster compared Mysterio to Nacho Libre from the 2006 Jack Black comedy of the same name. He stated, “He’s here. Look at him. He’s in his — he’s in his mask. He’s like a Luchador. This is like, uh, Nacho Libre.”

A number of fans took issue with the comments on Rey Mysterio and expressed their displeasure via Twitter. You can see some of their reactions, along with the initial clip posted on Twitter by FOX Sports, below.
