Rey Mysterio had a tremendous 14-year run with the WWE, revolutionizing the Cruiserweight division while winning two World Heavyweight Championships, plus the 2006 Royal Rumble.
But The Master of the 619 left the WWE in 2015, and has since been performing in the independent circuit. That being said, the 43-year-old Mysterio is holding out hope for at least one more major run with the company.
Speaking with Michael Wonsover of ESPN, Mysterio said he’s “not locked up to any company,” and he sought to work a more free and balanced schedule when he left the WWE. On top of that, Mysterio said that he began to experience constant pain in mornings, which convinced him it was time to leave WWE.
After spending nearly three years away from the WWE, Rey Mysterio did admit he’d like to return to the company one last time:
“I would definitely love to go back and finish up. Whether it’s one year or whatever the case might be. Whether it’s a farewell. I owe a lot to that company. That company gave me such an amazing opportunity, and I took advantage of every single moment I was with WWE to the fullest.
I wouldn’t want to just be remembered as ‘Oh, man, he never re-signed and he never came back.’ I would definitely love to come back and do a last run and say goodbye to my WWE fans. Tell them goodbye in a proper way.”
When asked about the possibility of returning at the 2018 Royal Rumble, Mysterio simply answered “Never say never, right?”
Mysterio was one of the biggest superstars in the WWE during his lengthy run with them. He held four Tag Team Championships, one WWE Championship and two Intercontinental Championships.
Mysterio, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho and Dean Malenko are widely credited for making the Cruiserweights a much more relevant division once they jumped from WCW to the WWF and built up excellent careers for themselves.
It would be nice if Mysterio could come back to the WWE one last time. He didn’t have the greatest departure, as fans booed him for appearing (instead of Daniel Bryan) at the 2014 Royal Rumble, and he had to take time off to heal numerous injuries.
Mysterio said it himself: “Never Say Never.” So we shouldn’t be surprised if the masked Lucha Libre icon has one more WWE run in him.
