• “Retiring with my hands raised up high, Mayweather style” – SmackDown Wrestler Doesn’t Want To Retire With A Loss

On an episode of the Not About Wrestling podcast, the most famous Luchador on the planet, Rey Mysterio, talked about when he plans to retire.

Rey Mysterio made his professional wrestling debut in Mexico on April 30, 1989, when he was only 14 years old, hence he is wrestling professionally for almost 32 years by now.

During his long illustrious career, Rey wrestled for various promotions, including Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and of course for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

Here’s what the father of current SmackDown wrestler Dominik Mysterio had to say when asked if his son should be the one to retire him:

“I haven’t thought about him retiring me, but I have thought about winning gold together. A lot of people have said ‘I can see Dominik retiring you, and you fighting your son’.

That is what everybody expects to happen, but why not leave the ending of this story on a high note.

Retiring with my hands raised up high, Mayweather style. I’m hoping I can be the first one to say ‘that’s it’ and that’s it.”
