• Rey Mysterio Reveals His Successor In WWE
During a recent interview with BT Sport, former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio named former United States Champion Ricochet as his successor in WWE.
Below is what Mysterio said:
“He was actually one of the first superstars that really impressed me. Again, when you’re in this world, and you come home, the last thing you want to do is watch wrestling or hear about other wrestlers. And I secluded myself very well.
I was home for two or three days a week, and it was family time, specifically. But there comes a point where you gotta make sure you see your competition, who is up and coming?
And he was one of the guys that really stood out to me, and he’s been doing incredible, man.
I personally feel he is the next Rey Mysterio.”
