Rey Mysterio has been on the sidelines due to knee injury that required surgery in November. During his absence, he lost the WWE United States Title to Logan Paul at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, marking his exit from television on an episode of SmackDown.

Mysterio’s departure from the scene occurred as part of a storyline where Santos Escobar turned heel and attacked him, believing that Mysterio was siding with Carlito.

According to the latest report in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter by Dave Meltzer, Mysterio is planning a return to WWE television in the coming weeks, targeting a timeframe of two to four weeks from now.

Mysterio has expressed his commitment to improving his physical condition. He plans to enlist the help of a personal trainer at the beginning of 2024, with a specific focus on strengthening his lower body, including his hips, legs, and quads.


As one of the most beloved and enduring figures in professional wrestling, fans are eagerly awaiting Rey Mysterio’s return to the ring, and it appears he is taking proactive steps to ensure he’s in peak physical condition when he does make his comeback.
