Rey Mysterio Says He Could Be Out Until 2014, Talks About His WWE Future and More

– Rey Mysterio recently spoke with The Miami Herald while in town for WWE’s Hell In a Cell pay-per-view. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Doing commentary at Hell In a Cell:
“We were first supposed to do a half hour of commentating with the Spanish team. I think it worked out well that I was able to stick around, and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the show very much. It was definitely a different side compared to being in the ring. It was awesome…Being that close to the ring, but not wrestling was breathtaking. For a while I would forget I was commentating and be really into the match. The matches were incredible. I thought the pay-per-view was incredible. The fans make the matches and make the show, so the fans were incredible as well.”

Returning for a match in Mexico last month:
“It was more of a let’s see how my body reacts and my knee reacts to being back in the ring. Overall I felt good but still feel I need a bit more therapy, just from the damage I’ve done through the years to my knee. We are back to therapy and strengthening up that quad and hamstring, just making sure there are no mistakes this next time.”

When will he be back?
“I think if I don’t do it by the end of the year, then next year. I would hate to push myself instead of taking my time. I want to make a good return, and not being absent shortly after my return. It’s something I’m still debating. I’m going to listen to my body.”

“I’m definitely still motivated and feel the urge to be in the ring. I’ve always told myself the day I don’t feel that anymore is the day I need to say, ‘That’s it.’ I still have some years inside me that I want to push forward, I want to go out and entertain. I miss it. I really do. I miss being out there and the interaction with the fans. I miss the applause and the 619 chants. I’m hoping that God still gives me a couple of more years for me to perform.”

    rey needs to retire seriously. He’s had a 13 plus year career and become an international star all over the world


    Speaking from somebody who has also had multiple knee surgeries, these things slow you down. Rey’s had how many knee operations since his first one in WCW? I loved his matches but I just don’t want to see the guy in a wheel chair or crippled for life, he’s easily got enough money to retire and sit happily with his kids for the rest of his life, not to mention he has enough of a following to do the odd appearance and promote stuff if he wanted to.

    Rey you have had a wonderful career. There is no shame in admitting your body wont allow you to continue. It’s time. just give us one last match at WM and then walk away proud of all you have accomplished

    Rey needs to hang it up and retire seriously.

    He’s had a heck of a career spanning 13 plus years in the business and become one of the most recognised international stars.


    He’s had a history of knee problems spanning all the way back to his time in WCW and speaking from somebody who has also had/has knee problems these things slow you down and impact on your career and life. He has nothing left to prover to us the fans and probably has enough money to life quite happily if he did retire, not to mention he could still easily be part of the WWE in some capacity making appearances/speeches etc if he really wanted to… I just don’t want to see this guy crippled or in a wheelchair in the next 10 years
