It will be an end of era, it will be end of an awesome story as WWE superstar Rey Mysterio would be retiring from wrestling next week.
WWE announced that 3-time WWE world champion Rey Mysterio will have a ‘retirement ceremony’ next week on Monday Night Raw. Mysterio has been out of action since May 11 when he suffered an eye injury after Seth Rollins attacked him. He was also a participant in the Money in the Bank suitcase match.
It was reported that Mysterio had suffered a serious injury and it could be leading to his retirement. The fans are however skeptical of the announcement.
“Rey Mysterio’s injury status is still listed as critical. Doctors cannot properly assess the damage to his retina until the swelling subsides, as Rey is currently at-risk for infection. Mysterio suffered an eye injury when Seth Rollins grinded his face into the corner of the steel ring steps,” WWE said in a statement on May 13.
Mysterio returned to the WWE in 2018 after several years out. Despite being 45-years-old, the spring in Mysterio’s step is still there. The ‘Master of 619’ is still one of the biggest highflyers in the squared circle and his matches against Andrade are still remembered fondly by the WWE Universe.
