Rey Mysterio: Why he missed WWE RAW this week

Last updated

WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio was absent from this week’s episode of WWE RAW, with the luchador legend not being seen on camera during the broadcast.

According to Dave Meltzer, Rey Mysterio was missing from the show due to being “banged up” and needing to get some rest.

“Rey Mysterio was banged up from matches a few weeks back and had to take a week off but obviously returned the next week” Meltzer wrote in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

“When WWE announced the Street Profits vs. Mysterios match on 12/13 was off, and said it was due to injuries on both sides, it was Rey being hurt and Ford being out of action for health-related reasons” Meltzer concluded.

Why Rey Mysterio has been off WWE programming

RAW is broadcast each and every Monday night, and fans in the United Kingdom can watch the show with a monthly BT Sport subscription.
