Rey Mysterio is certainly an established veteran in the world of professional wrestling and he is proud of his luchador heritage and legacy. He has won championships in various promotions all over the world in his three-decade-long career and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
Mysterio came back to WWE in 2018 and since then has been involved in a variety of high profile feuds, especially teaming up with his son Dominik Mysterio over the past couple of years.
The master of the 619 and his son were even Smackdown Tag Team Champions earlier last year and have always been together since Dominik debuted. Mysterio also made it clear he never wants father vs son storyline with Dominik.
While speaking with Complex, Rey Mysterio was asked if he has any current goals in the company. Mysterio then hinted at retiring from pro wrestling very soon as well.
“I’ve been very happy with the career that I’ve had, and it came with so many luxuries, so many blessings, so many friends, so many moments of traveling around the world. I never thought I would be able to share my culture, my lifestyle, my family around the world, and have fans in Europe, in Istanbul, in Saudi Arabia, and Iraq. To do Tribute to the Troops. Really, there’s not much I can ask for now. You know, I just want to ride into the sunset. I’m making the best out of these last couple of years. And then I just want to watch my son’s career flourish.”
This is interesting because Mysterio recently stated that he has no plans to retire from WWE. We will have to wait and see whether Mysterio will end up retiring this year or not.
