• Rey Mysterio Could Lose His Mask Soon
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, Andrade defeated former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio in a singles match. Andrade defeated Mysterio on last week’s RAW as well, during a Gauntlet match.
Just like last week, Andrade tried to rip off Mysterio’s mask during the match.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE originally planned on doing a “Mask vs. Hair” match between Rey & Andrade at WrestleMania 35, but the match didn’t happen because WWE officials weren’t keen on Rey losing his mask and didn’t want Andrade to cut his hair either.
However, there are a lot of Andrade supporters backstage in WWE now and they want to push Andrade in a big way, so this could mean Rey could be losing his mask at an upcoming PPV in a “Mask vs. Hair” match.
Below is what Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio:
“That was the original idea for WrestleMania and they dropped it.
At one point, I was told that they don’t want to cut Andrade’s hair and they can’t take Rey’s mask.
He has people in power who are behind him, yet they don’t do anything with him. I guess now is the start of attempting to do something with him.”
