During an interview with Scott Fisherman, former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio talked about the upcoming TripleMania XXII event, why he left WWE & more.
Below is what Mysterio said about leaving WWE:
“I think that was the main focus regarding my departure from WWE is first off to have my own time. I wanted my family time before anything else. Family to me comes first, especially now in this stage of my career. I knew that I wasn’t going to have a strong commitment to another company if I was going to sign with someone else.
I wanted to do something on my own terms and call my own shots. That time came. I’m doing a couple of events for AAA and independent work. Not too much wresting, but signings and appearances. I think the second major factor in this is I have been on the grind doing this for 25 years. So my body needed to rest without a doubt.”
