Rey Mysterio hasn’t aged by an inch ever since he step foot inside of the squared circle. The unmatched athleticism at this juncture of his career puts many current generation superstars to shame. He’s also termed as the “Biggest little man” in WWE history and had proved the critics wrong over the years, each time they raised an objection against him.

The current WWE run of Rey Mysterio haven’t been the best for him, although he had quite a few memorable outings from that. He debuted back in 2002 on SmackDown and is considered as one of the revolutionary cornerstones of the blue brand. However, after spending almost 13 years with the company, the luchadore went on a prolonged hiatus break after 2015.

During a recent interview with the National, Mysterio revealed what made him stop wrestling for a while during that phase. He mainly quoted his family as the only cause for that as Rey wanted to reconnect with his beloved ones. On the verge of getting drained up mentally and physically, the masked legend decided to make the decision.

I left because I was just tired physically, mentally and I just wanted to reconnect with my family,. But I always knew that I wanted to come back and I wanted to retire in the WWE. My career was definitely going to end in WWE, no matter what.”

Following a mental torment from his son Dominik in recent weeks on Raw, a broken father in Rey Mysterio decided to call off on his legendary career. However, Triple H made a better offer towards him and cracked a special deal with him to trade Mysterio on SmackDown permanently.

At least this will keep him away from the heinous intentions of his son who has brutally attacked Rey numerous times recently. On his first night back on the blue brand, Rey earned an opportunity towards the prestigious Intercontinental Championship.

He will take on The Ring General Gunther in a first time ever clash this coming Friday on SmackDown. Mysterio himself is a 2-time Intercontinental Champion and knows exactly what it takes to own the gold. The match has been already taped by WWE and the result isn’t a secret to many anymore.
