- This week's WWE Five-Star Match of the Week was chosen by WWE agent Dean Malenko and he chose his match against Rey Mysterio from WCW's The Great American Bash 1996. Malenko told WWE.com that the night was special, and that he always wanted to work with Rey.
"What really stands out about that night was the guys in the back being really disappointed seeing Rey," Malenko said. "They thought he was really small and very young-looking, which we kind of laugh at now. But it ended up being one of the only times in 20-some odd years of being in the business that I walked back in the dressing room and my peers stood on their feet applauding this guy's ability and what he did that night. It was a really neat scene for me to see and it definitely welcomed Rey into the fold of WCW. It was a great moment and one that I cherish very highly."
