Injury Update On Rey Mysterio, Freddie Prinze Jr. Praises Ricky Starks



WWE shared an update on Rey Mysterio on Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown after he suffered an injury last week.

During his match against Santos Escobar for a shot at the WWE United States Championship, Mysterio took a dive from Escobar and hit his head on the ringside mat, resulting in the bout being stopped and his opponent being declared the victor.

On the latest edition of WWE SmackDown, Michael Cole stated that Mysterio suffered “severe whiplash” and is currently recovering at home.

Mysterio will appear on WWE NXT next week, as he will be in Dragon Lee’s corner for the latter’s North American Title match against Dominik Mysterio.

On a recent edition of his “Wrestling With Freddie” podcast, Freddie Prinze Jr. lavished praise on AEW wrestler Ricky Starks for his recent promo work and his ability to connect with the audience.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the impact of Starks’ recent performances: “The last two promos he did were as heel and ‘All about me’ as you can get, and the crowd was like, ‘Yo, we don’t give a shit, we freakin’ love you, Ricky. We don’t care if you cheat to win.’ This week, my man walked out in separated pearls around his neck. I hadn’t seen a babyface do that since Princess Diana, she was the last one with the guts to wear it. He came out in separated pearls, and didn’t get booed once. He has so much going for him right now. I hope the company sees this.”

On the synergy between Starks and Punk for their promo segments: “I think Punk’s in on that, and I give him props for that because he let Ricky go and really shine. And when you let that guy shine, he shines bright!”
