Heading into WrestleMania 35, Rey Mysterio was not 100 percent. He had an injured ankle which was clear from his under-30 second loss to Samoa Joe and recently, during an interview with Busted Open Radio, Mysterio addressed his career’s future.
Suggesting everyone has an expiration date for their career, Mysterio hinted that he might be getting closer to his. He realizes that he doesn’t have a lot of time left.
“I’ve been able to not only see, but live the evolution of this sport and like you said [Mark Henry] there’s a huge difference from when I broke in to 15 years later to another 15 because just this past March my wife sat down and Dominick joined us and it’s been 30 years since I’ve been doing this.”
“The evolution of this sport has been so dramatically different in the change and I definitely don’t see myself doing this many more years longer although the opportunity that I’ve gotten with my return to WWE to be able to face guys like the caliber of Andrade who is a third generation wrestler have been incredible.”
Mysterio said he still wants to wrestle, but he’s not sure if his body will hold up. A full-time schedule is certainly out of the cards and right now he’s going to rest and heal up, trying to get his ankle in the best shape possible to make his return.
Rey Mysterio likely wants to be wrestling long enough or working with WWE to see his son Dominick get involved. And, by the size of his kid and with a father like Mysterio as your mentor, it can’t be long before Dominick is training in the Performance Centre.
If Rey can return and continue battling with guys like Andrade, Styles, Daniel Bryan and others, he’ll go down as one of the best in history, whether he wrestles for another 3 months or 3 years.
