As we noted before, WWE announced that Mysterio suffered an ankle injury on this week’s episode of RAW and his match against Samoa Joe for the United States Championship at WrestleMania 35 could be in jeopardy.
Below is what WWE posted:
Rey Mysterio suffers ankle injury
“Rey Mysterio suffered an ankle injury. The injury was sustained at the hands of Baron Corbin, during their match on Raw Monday night when Mysterio was standing up for his friend, Kurt Angle.
Because of the injury, Mysterio was forced out of his previously scheduled match with Andrade on SmackDown LIVE. Mysterio will continue to be evaluated as WrestleMania draws closer.”
It’s possible that WWE changes Joe vs. Mysterio and makes a change to Kurt Angle’s WrestleMania 35 match.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
