Lucha Libre legend Rey Mysterio was the guest on Jim Ross’ special Starrcast edition of his podcast and addressed some of the rumors surrounding his inevitable return to WWE.
“We started off with an anonymous call in January [about] coming back for the Rumble, which was a big surprise to the fans because every time I go to a signing they say, ‘damn, Rey, I did not expect to see you there,’ so I guess that started off the whole conversation about possibly making a return. We’re still in the mix of it. We’ve been going back and forth, talking about possibly returning this month and then this month, so the longer it extends, the more I get work outside. That’s my bread and butter. That’s what I do for a living. I’m just waiting for them to say, ‘now’… when they say, ‘now,’ if the time is right, let’s go!”
Mysterio will follow in the footsteps of other WWE 2K returning legends such as Goldberg and Kurt Angle by returning to a WWE ring for the first time in almost 5 years.
