Rey Mysterio couldn’t compete on WWE RAW this week. He sustained an injury and his son Dominik needed to wrestle for him. This is a real injury that will keep Mysterio out of action for a while, but not for as long as it could have been.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained how long Rey Mysterio will be out of action. His triceps injury isn’t a full tear which will shorten his time away from the ring since he doesn’t need surgery.
“If he had a full tear then he would need surgery and he’d be out eight months. I hear two months or less so, you know it’s a real injury and not a good time, but it’s a whole lot better than six to eight months out, especially right now when he’s a real focal part of the show and he’s in a real key angle.”
Rey Mysterio might be able to remain on television throughout his recovery. It’s really WWE’s decision because they would hate to lose Dominik Mysterio on television as he has proven himself to be a valuable asset in the ring.
