Rey Mysterio was on his way to Wrestlemania 35 in a championship match just to face a speed breaker. It came in the form of an injury that could stop him from going into the biggest event of the year. Medical treatment is still going on for him as his status for this special show looks uncertain, as of now.
The former WWE Champion suffered the injury in an impromptu match on this week’s WWE Raw. It happened during his contest against Baron Corbin in the main event of the show in Washington, DC at the Capital One Arena on the USA Network. Originally, he was set to face Kurt Angle in a dream match.
But for some reason, WWE called up Rey Mysterio on Raw just to digest a loss at the hands of Baron Corbin. The match was also a boring feast for the fans in an episode which was the go home show for Wrestlemania 35. So will the Mexican superstar be ready within this Sunday’s Wrestlemania event?
He sounded quite positive about his status during an Instagram session. Showing off the exact move that he suffered the injury from, he also has spoken of lacing up the boost for Wrestlemania 35,
“SUFFERED AN INJURY ON MY RIGHT ANKLE THIS PAST MONDAY NIGHT ON RAW AGAINST @BARONCORBINWWE PRAYING TO BE READY FOR MANIA THIS SUNDAY!”
Despite what the Master of 619 thinks, reports from sescoops.com revealed that there’s still no confirmed news on Rey Mysterio. The backstage news suggests that it’s a legit injury that the veteran player is dealing with. At this age, it could be difficult for him to recuperate from a concussion within just a few days.
However, the good news is WWE is still advertising him for Wrestlemania 35 match card. So the expectation is that he will make it to the show using his veteran instincts. As we all know, Rey Mysterio will challenge WWE United States Champion Samoa Joe at WrestleMania 35 on Sunday, April 7, 2019, in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium.
It is probably to keep the match safe that WWE creative did not let Rey Mysterio compete on this week’s episode of Smackdown. He was about to face Andrade renewing their rivalry that was off the card. Rather, Samoa Joe faced Ali in a match to fill up the void.
