REY MYSTERIO UPDATE

By Mike Johnson on 2019-06-24 10:25:00

The word making the rounds at last night's Stomping Ground PPV was that Rey Mysterio is expected back in early July.

We are told his return is targeted for the 7/8 Newark, NJ Raw taping, but that is pending medical clearance.  The expectation is that Mysterio should return around that time.

Mysterio has been out of action since suffering a separated shoulder last month at Money in the Bank against Samoa Joe, forcing him to relinquish the WWE United States title.  Mysterio appeared on last week's WWE event in San Diego, his hometown.

While out of action, Mysterio has launched a campaign for children with autism:

Just after defeating fellow WWE superstar Samoa Joe for the US Championship belt, Rey Mysterio is announcing this initiative to help children with autism, a cause with which he has a personal connection. “During my career, I have met many autistic children and their families. I’ve been deeply moved by the stories of the challenges that autism presents but heartened by the joy that wrestling brings them and in particular, Rey Mysterio.” said the luchador.

ABOUT REY MYSTERIO

At the start of his amazing journey, Rey was considered way too small and unlikely to succeed at the highest level on international wrestling. Having just celebrated his 30th anniversary in the sport, his high-flying Lucha Libre style has led him to becoming 2 x WWE world heavyweight champion; WWE champion; 3 x cruiserweight champion; 4 x WWE tag team champion; 2 x intercontinental champion; royal rumble winner and 2019 United States Champion.
