As noted earlier, Rey Mysterio has been dealing with knee issues for quite some time, and feared that he had torn the ACL in his good knee. Dr. James Andrews said he would be able to wrestle but not without the help of a special brace.
Dave Meltzer noted during the Wrestling Observer Radio show this past weekend that Mysterio is “officially” slated to return in June, but there is also the change that he may not return at all.
“The official company line on Rey Mysterio is that he will be back, hopefully, in June… after rehabbing the knee,” said Meltzer. “But he may not be back at all. And it’s not retirement, but there’s something going on… there was stuff going on that they were working on perhaps a release, but they want merchandising rights… but officially he’ll back in June.”
As of this writing, Mysterio is listed on the “events” page on WWE.com for the Monday Night Raw following WrestleMania 29 on April 8th from the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ. Mysterio is also listed for the Raw WrestleMania Revenge Tour in the U.K. in April. This may simply be a case of the listings being outdated.
