WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio recently underwent successful knee surgery, as announced by the wrestler himself on Instagram. The procedure was performed by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas in Birmingham, Alabama. Mysterio expressed his determination for payback against Santos Escobar following the surprise attack on the November 10 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.
The incident occurred after Carlito blamed Escobar for Mysterio losing the United States Championship to Logan Paul at WWE Crown Jewel earlier in the month. Enraged by the accusation, Escobar claimed his love for Mysterio and proceeded to deliver a beatdown, stating, “I love you, you were my hero, you made me do this.” Mysterio’s successful knee surgery suggests he is on the path to recovery, setting the stage for a potential showdown with Escobar in the future.
