In relation to Superstars that go above and past the decision of pro-wrestling obligation within the squared circle, it is onerous to seek out anybody that has the identical quantity of hustle than Rey Mysterio.

He did not; he really someway obtained higher. So why did he retire from the WWE?

The person was a consummate entertainer and simply ranks as the most effective skilled wrestlers the game has ever seen. Heck, even his title is unbelievable: Rey Mysterio? Come on.
Rey has been used, as of late, as a strategy to fuel up different Superstars and construct their careers.
That was in all probability as a result of it was a identified truth, behind-the-scenes that he could be retiring. The WWE is not within the enterprise of giving pro-wrestlers who plan on making an exit “time within the solar”, however as an alternative use them to assist construct the long run roster’s line-up of expertise and stars.
Nevertheless, to the group’s credit score, they’re permitting the wrestler to depart the game as a “face” (hero) and never a heel.

Rey Mysterio’s high-flying, gravity-defying, and downright seemingly inconceivable feats of acrobatic excellence has positively taken a toll on his physique after a long time of wrestling professionally. It is higher to finish a profession on a “excessive observe”, quite than having a doubtlessly life-altering damage do it for you.
Rey’s son Dominick’s personal WWE debut seems to be occurring within the close to future because the group is continually that includes him all through completely different reveals and getting him combined up in quite a lot of storylines.
