When Rey Mysterio made his WWE return, there was a lot of hype behind his return and fans could not wait to see the wrestling veteran square off against some of the top competitors in the company. However, it did not go that way for Mysterio.
Dave Meltzer provided an explanation on Wrestling Observer Radio, that WWE’s plans for booking Rey Mysterio might be disappointing to fans. He said that the mentality in WWE is that since Rey Mysterio is 44 years old, his purpose in the company is to put over newer superstars.
That is a shame as Rey Mysterio is still one of the most talented superstars in the company and has the ability to put on excellent matches, as evident from his matches with Andrade.
Perhaps we might see a different booking for Mysterio eventually.
