• Rey Mysterio Gives An Update On His Retirement
Former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio (age 47) has been wrestling for 33 years.
This past Monday on RAW, he celebrated his 20th WWE anniversary, as he made his debut in the company back in 2002.
During an interview with BT Sport, Mysterio gave an update on his retirement plans.
Below are the highlights:
On when he plans to retire:
“I’ve never had an end date planned. Now that I’m getting closer to my 50s and I see my son wrestling, I do tell myself, ‘Okay, I want to go 3 more years. I don’t want to go past 50,’ you know?
But then, I remind myself, ‘What if you feel good? Can you still go another year?’ But I think as of right now, my date has always been, don’t go over 50.”
If it’ll be easy to end his in-ring career:
“At this point probably will be, just because I can see my son go. That almost gives me a second life of, ‘I’m seeing myself through him,’ you know?
It’s special to be able to see my son step in there and be given this opportunity with such short amount of time, and he had to be prepped up, you know, I feel like he’s taken advantage of the opportunity.”
