#5 vs Shawn Michaels, RAW, 14 November 2005
This was just one day after Rey Mysterio’s close friend Eddie Guerrero died. This episode of RAW was dedicated to Eddie and we saw many Interbrand special matches on the show. Rey Mysterio was in the SmackDown Brand at the time and faced Shawn Micheals from RAW. Both men wore Eddie T-shirts to the ring. Micheals avoided two 619 and Rey also returned the favor by avoiding a Sweet Chin Music from Micheals. However, Rey was finally able to finish the match by hitting his trio of moves in
#4 vs Eddie Guerrero, Wrestle Mania 21, 2005
This was an unusual match where the tag team champions faced each other. Their feud would start later but until this point, their relationship was shown amicable. The match was full of typical Mysterio’s high flying moves. At the beginning of the match, Mysterio knocked Guerrero down jumping over the top rope. Guerrero, then, placed Mysterio into the Three Amigos and attempted a Frog Splash but was unsuccessful. After hitting a 619, Mysterio attempted the west coast pop but Guerrero countered it into a Powerbomb. Mysterio, however, followed it with a Hurricanrana and rolled Guerrero for the pin and the win. After the match, both men shook hands in the ring.
