• WWE Legend Was Banged Up A Few Weeks Back
According to the Wrestling Observer, former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio was banged up a few weeks ago and asked for a week off from RAW in December.
The #1 Contenders Match between The Mysterios & The Street Profits was scheduled to take place on the December 13th episode of RAW, but it got postponed due to Rey being banged up and Montez Ford dealing with a health issue.
Here’s what the Observer reported:
“Rey Mysterio was banged up from matches a few weeks back and had to take a week off but obviously returned the next week.
When WWE announced the Street Profits vs. Mysterios match on 12/13 was off, and said it was due to injuries on both sides, it was Rey being hurt and Ford being out of action for health related reasons.”
Rey Mysterio is 47 years old and still works a full-time WWE schedule. He teams up with his 24-year-old son Dominik these days. They even held the SmackDown Tag Team Titles last year.
The Street Profits eventually defeated The Mysterios to become the #1 Contenders for the RAW Tag Team Championship and they will get their Title match against RK-BRO tonight at the WWE Day 1 PPV.
