Dot com has a new interview online with Rey Mysterio ahead of WWE's tour of Mexico. In it, he talks about the injury that has kept him out of the ring. His problem is with the ACL in his left knee that he first tore in 1997. His last surgery was in 2011 and he returned too soon by working SummerSlam 2012 through January of this year.

Rather than undergoing another surgery, Mysterio has been doing stem cell treatment under Dr. James Andrews. Basically, they extract blood from the bone marrow and inject it with two other ingredients directly into his left knee joint. The goal is to regrow knee cartilage on his own.

Mysterio, who is advertised to appear on WWE's shows in Mexico, is hoping to return to the ring by Thanksgiving or Christmas, although he wouldn't rule out getting involved on the Mexican loop. He said he hasn't thought about retirement and it's not something that is going to happen within the next two or three years.
