Rey Mysterio reveals when he plans to retire
Rey Mysterio is arguably the greatest luchador to ever wrestle in a WWE ring. For almost 32 years, he has wowed audiences with his ability and skill. However, at the age of 46, Rey Mysterio may be looking to hang up his boots very soon.
Rey Mysterio is a professional wrestler currently working with WWE. He wrestles on WWE’s SmackDown brand along with his son Dominik Mysterio. He has had a storied career with WWE winning every major title the company has to offer.
On the Not About Wrestling podcast, Rey Mysterio discussed his retirement and how he plans on going out. He responded to a question regarding the possibility of having his son retire him, saying that he would rather go out on a high note, winning championship gold with his son, rather than being retired by his son in a match.
“I haven’t thought about him retiring me, but I have thought about winning gold together. A lot of people have said, “I can see Dominik retiring you, and you fighting your son”. That is what everybody expects to happen, but why not leave the ending of this story on a high note. Retiring with my hands raised up high, Mayweather style. I’m hoping I can be the first one to say “that’s it” and that’s it.”
Rey Mysterio’s retirement has been alluded to by WWE in the past. He recently had a “retirement ceremony” during his feud with Seth Rollins. While it did not end with Mysterio’s retirement, we can assume that WWE will definitely pay respect to Rey once he does make the decision.
