It’s been a few weeks since Vince McMahon has been gone from running WWE. The resignation has been surreal for not just the fans, but for many of the superstars on Raw, Smackdown, and NXT.
While he never worked with McMahon on television, Rey Mysterio became a multi-time World Champion during his tenure with WWE. Mysterio has offered comments about McMahon’s departure in the wake of the sexual misconduct scandals.
Rey spoke to the media at the 2022 Leagues Cup Showcase. He would say that he did not expect Vince to retire, and there is still denial behind the scenes as WWE has been under McMahon’s control for multiple decades.
None of us expected it,” he said. “We still are in denial that he’s no longer there, but it is reality and we have to accept it. So we move on, we keep the show up and running.”
Rey was asked what needs to do to address its corporate culture, and he kind of dodged the question by saying he’s more concerned about the storylines involving himself and his son, Dominik.
“To be honest with you, I’m more worried about what’s happening with The Mysterios, and storylines and how do we make this product even better, you know? Everybody has their input, everybody has a little bit to give, come out on top and add the end of the day, entertain our fans.”
Rey Mysterio and his son, Dominik, are embroiled in a rivalry with The Judgement Day on Monday Night Raw. With Edge returning to add to the ongoing feud, things are picking up. We’ll keep an eye on the changes with WWE under Stephanie McMahon, Nick Khan and Triple H’s leadership.
