Mysterio is set to be in action on next week’s SmackDown 1000, where he will face current United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in a WWE World Cup qualifying match.
Below is what WWE posted about this:
“Did you think SmackDown 1000 couldn’t get any bigger? Think again!
In his first match on SmackDown LIVE since 2014, the returning Rey Mysterio will square off with United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in a WWE World Cup Qualifying Match.
The field in this eight-man tournament to determine the best in the world is already incredibly star-studded, with 16-time world champion John Cena, Olympic gold medalist and former world champion Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy & Randy Orton already punching their tickets to Saudi Arabia for WWE Crown Jewel.
It’s sure to be a thrilling qualifying match, as Mysterio will look to use his speed and inimitable high-flying ability to keep The King of Strong Style on his toes, while Nakamura will attempt to stop The Ultimate Underdog in his tracks with his arsenal of devastating strikes.
Who will walk away from this dream match with a place in the WWE World Cup? Find out during SmackDown LIVE’s historic 1000th episode, next Tuesday at 8/7 C on USA!”
According to betting odds provided by Sky Bet, Mysterio is currently the favorite to defeat Nakamura and qualify for the World Cup at WWE Crown Jewel.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise as WWE is only booking the Ruthless Aggression Era Veterans to compete in the World Cup.
