• Big Update On Rey Mysterio’s Injury
As we noted earlier, WWE announced that Rey Mysterio suffered torn triceps during the Tag Team match between the Mysterios and Seth Rollins & Murphy at last Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view.
Usually, the injury forces the person to be out of action for 6-8 months, but Mysterio will be lucky enough to recover from it in a few months.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the injury is legitimate, and is indeed a triceps tear, but it isn’t a full tear, which is why Mysterio won’t need surgery and will just recover from rehab.
He will reportedly be back to the ring in two months or less.
