It was reported via Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated on Thursday that sources have indicated to him that Vince McMahon was talking about having Rey Mysterio appear as Braun Strowman’s partner at this year’s WrestleMania event.
Dave Meltzer mentioned Barrasso’s claims in this week’s issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter and reported that there have been no talks of Mysterio being at this year’s WrestleMania. However, Meltzer didn’t shoot down the idea entirely.
“At press time, while he [Rey] has been in talks with WWE, nobody had brought up to him doing anything at WrestleMania. Obviously anything is possible and if WWE were to want him in that spot, he wouldn’t be adverse to it.”
Mysterio’s status can always change between now and WrestleMania. If it does, we will keep you updated with the details as we receive them.
