Exclusive: WWE Creative Team Told To Come Up With Plans For A Major Star’s Return – Who It Is & When It’s Scheduled To Happen

The WWE creative team has been told to begin kicking around ideas for the return of Rey Mysterio. While he was shooting for a return at SummerSlam, that doesn’t appear as likely with the show only a week out. One of the delays in his return could be due to the health of his mother, not due to his injury status. Rey’s mother has been in poor health but we’re told it’s been improving.

Mysterio is a guy that’s hard to book because Vince McMahon often changes his mind on whether or not he wants to push him. However, despite McMahon’s uncertainty, Rey is still a top merchandise seller [in WWE] even after a prolonged absence from television.

WWE told Mysterio when his mother was believed to be in grave condition to take as much time away as he needed. He is expected to return some time this year and the planning stages of his comeback have been made a priority.

    who?

    • Matt

      Someone more famous, more liked and richer than you.

        for now.

    Glad to see that Vince and Co. still have some faith in Rey Mysterio. I was watching a couple clips recently, and it just hit me that Mysterio hasn’t been there. I just hope they don’t rush him into a program immediately.

  • Xavier

    Can’t wait to see Mysterio back in action. Eaaily the best pure wrestler of the past 15-20 years. Glad his mom is doing well now.

    • Chris

      He may be one of the best high flyers of all time, but in NO way is he a “pure wrestler.” Certainly not the best over the past 15-20 years. Names like Hart, Michaels, Undertaker, Sting, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, just to name a few, are ahead of him on that list. Punk, Bryan, Samoa Joe, even Styles could well be ahead of him.

        None of those guys you mentioned are better then Rey Rey when it comes to just wrestling. Rey’s in ring work resume is 2nd to none. From AAA, ECW, WCW & WWE no one has a resume quite like Rey.

    Got to give it to WWE. Allowing him to “take as much time away as you need” is not something just any employer would say let alone allow.

    I would like to see RVD + Rey vs The Shield
