What’s the rumor?
Rey Mysterio has opened up about why has left WWE in 2014. The legend had left and has not spoken for quite a long time about it but on Lilian Garcia’s’Chasing Glory’, he has split the beans.
In case you did not know…
Mysterio was at the prime of his career in 2014 and was a fan favorite. The Mexican wrestler was into his year with WWE when he chose to leave the organization. RuRumorsent around that he was only pushed due to his association with Eddie Guerrero and he was released by WWE. But the biggest little guy has cleared the air around it.
The heart of the matter
Speaking in the Chasing Glory of Lilian Garcia, Mysterio said he left WWE because he was unable to keep up with the large requirements for a full-time schedule. His body was not able to take care of the strain and he wanted some time off. He notes that WWE and he understood it was just a temporary farewell.
“You knknow, required to take a rest. I needed to rest. I had to be around my family and just pick up on a lot of things that I had missed out on over the years just being on the road and traveling and devoting so much time to this sport that I kinda pushed my family aside and don’t get me wrong, my wife has always been very supportive of what I do and my kids also. But when your kids are young they don’t understand why daddy has to leave every week.” (viViarestling Edge)
Rey went on for a while into the Indie scene before going to Lucha Underground for a short period. He made his WWE return throughout the 2018 Royal Rumble and has been off and on screen ever since.
Rumours suggest that Rey Mysterio will be working with Andrade”Cien” Almas while others suggest it might be Rusev who partners with him following the Bulgarian brute awakened with the’Biggest little man’ to defeat Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura in WWE Starrcade.
