Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated reported in his weekly update that sources have indicated that Vince McMahon is strongly considering using Mysterio as Braun Strowman’s WrestleMania partner against Cesaro & Sheamus.
“Permitting Mysterio can work, two sources close to WWE confirmed that Vince McMahon is strongly considering using Mysterio as Braun Strowman’s tag team partner against Cesaro and Sheamus.”
The idea of the biggest and smallest working together is right in McMahon’s wheelhouse. If Mysterio only works a short-term deal, the partnership also works as he can take the pinfall instead of Strowman.
If Mysterio returns to WWE for WrestleMania, it is currently expected to be a short-term deal.
Take whatever Barrasso says with a grain of salt. This is the same individual that reported on several occasions that John Cena would be facing Rey Mysterio at this year’s WrestleMania.
