Rey Mysterio is true veteran in the world of professional wrestling, with an undeniable influence on the industry. Having accomplished virtually everything in his career and already inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, Mysterio recently named a surprising opponent for his retirement match.

Rey Mysterio has spent over 30 years in the wrestling industry, gaining immense respect from fans and peers alike. Beginning his career at just 14, Mysterio’s impact on the business is both profound and undeniable.

While speaking to SHAK Wrestling, Rey Mysterio was asked to pick an opponent for his retirement match who wasn’t Dominik Mysterio. Surprisingly enough, Mysterio ended up choosing none other than Santos Escobar, with whom Mysterio had been feuding for a while.

“If I had to pick another opponent out there, I truly believe that because we tap into our roots, Santos Escobar would be a person that I would most definitely would love to face.”


Rey Mysterio also made it clear when he knows it’s time to ‘tap out’ from professional wrestling. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see when The Master of The 619 will finally retire and whether he will end up squaring off against Santos Escobar in his retirement match.
