Rey Mysterio was in attendance at yesterday’s NFL Minnesota Vikings game and was shown on the FOX Sports broadcast. 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.

WWE currently has a broadcast partnership with FOX that will see Smackdown move to the FOX Network starting Friday, October 4. A weekly WWE studio news show is also in the works and is set to debut later this year.
