Rey Mysterio Comments On Possible WWE Return, Reflects On Royal Rumble Appearance


Former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio recently appeared on Edge & Christian’s Podcast (via Here are the highlights:

His Royal Rumble appearance:

“[WWE] tried to keep it a secret and I’m sure only the people that had to know knew about it, but it came down to a point where Hurricane and myself were on a bus. The next thing you know, we were told that we were okay to walk in there and put whatever we need to put together, so we walk in there probably a good hour before the actual show started and the Rumble was one of the first segments of the pay-per-view, so some of the guys were able to catch drift and say, ‘hi’. Other guys were busy running around I didn’t get a chance to see until we were in the ring, so it was without a doubt one of the best feelings that I’ve had in my career, especially because I’ve been gone almost three years.” Mysterio continued, “I definitely wanted for the fans to see something different, something retro, and, at the same time, take care of my nutrition. I’ve been working out, which, at the end of the day, it helps me out as I get older not put a lot of stress on my knees and just overall feeling good. I think when that call came in and I eventually showed up, and I walked out, man, it was definitely breathtaking to just hear the ovation. My adrenaline didn’t stop probably till I got back to my hotel room, which was in [New] Jersey. Yeah, it was incredible.”

Potential WWE return:

“Right now, it’s just a matter of if there is an interest, I really think there is on both ends, as much as from WWE and myself, to eventually go back and do some work with them. I would love to eventually sit down and see if we can come up with a gameplan. I don’t see why that couldn’t happen, so I’m up for it and looking forward to it, to actually sit down and [converse] about some potential work with the company.” Mysterio added, “I’m excited to be able to sit down and come up with a gameplan. And hopefully that will happen.”
