Mysterio lost the shortest match at WrestleMania at one minute and Samoa Joe boasted about this fact on SmackDown Live. However, there was no sign of Rey Mysterio at all on the show.
While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Mysterio addressed his career’s future. Mr. 6-1-9 has been through a lot in his tenure as a pro wrestler, but everyone has an expiration date for their career and Mysterio realizes that he doesn’t have a lot of time left.
“I’ve been able to not only see, but live the evolution of this sport and like you said [Mark Henry] there’s a huge difference from when I broke in to 15 years later to another 15 because just this past March my wife sat down and Dominick joined us and it’s been 30 years since I’ve been doing this.”
“I wasn’t forced to grow up faster than others, but it was my decision that I wanted to be a part of this beautiful sport that I started at a young age, I got the opportunity and I ran with it and it just made me see things differently than other kids.”
“The evolution of this sport has been so dramatically different in the change and I definitely don’t see myself doing this many more years longer although the opportunity that I’ve gotten with my return to WWE to be able to face guys like the caliber of Andrade who is a third generation wrestler have been incredible.”
Mysterio said that he still has a desire to wrestle, but his body might disagree. He certainly can’t handle a full-time schedule like he once did. Hopefully, Mysterio will be able to rest up and heal whatever is wrong with his ankle so he can make a return soon enough, but he doesn’t need to push it.
Rey Mysterio is a legend and a shoo-in for the WWE Hall Of Fame already. He has also seen a ton of advancements in the sport of pro wrestling as well. After starting at 14 years old, it’s easy to see why Mysterio might understand that he doesn’t not have much time left as an active competitor, but his son Dominick is waiting in the wings to carry on his father’s legacy.
