Rey Mysterio recently spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News to promote Sunday’s TripleMania PPV. Here are the highlights.
On working with Eddie Guerrero:
“For the fans to be able to enjoy a lucha libre match between Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio, I think, I don’t want to be flattering myself but that’s probably some of the best lucha libre matches that I had throughout my career and we were able to demonstrate it to the fans around the world.”
On his WWE departure:
“WWE, they agreed on my departure. At first, it felt kind of like you have to make up time for your injury status that you’ve had throughout the past. But when the meeting came down, I really expressed my feeling towards them as far as me wanting to sit back and be a family man and not consistently beat up my body like I had been for years. They were very understanding about it. No hard feelings from both sides. We ended in a very amicable way. I started enjoying my life at home.”
How are his knees holding up?:
“My right knee is perfectly fine, knock on wood. My left knee was the one that’s always been giving me issues,” he said. “Now with the time that I’ve had off I’ve been able to focus more on rehabilitation and strengthening up my quads so my knees wouldn’t hurt as much. They feel great. They feel really good right now. Now that I’m at home and I can enjoy sleeping at eating right, you can tell. You can see a huge difference.”
