He couldn’t make it. There are all kinds of injuries that can leave wrestlers on the sidelines for any amount of time.

Rey Mysterio did not appear as advertised during this year’s Royal Rumble. Instead, Dominik Mysterio came to the ring with Rey’s mask, with commentary suggesting that Dominik attacked Rey backstage. According to PWInsider.com, Rey missed the match due to being banged up from his match against Karrion Kross the previous night on SmackDown. It was also said that WWE went back and forth on having Rey in the match but decided against letting him wrestle. Rey is said to be “ok” and there is nothing to suggest that he will miss significant time.

Rey is a heck of a star. Check out what he can do when he is around:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that happens every so often and unfortunately it is not something that can be prevented. Rey being out of action is never good to see though and hopefully he is able to get back in the ring soon. It seems that WWE is setting up Rey vs. Dominik, likely for WrestleMania, and that is a story that has quite the bit of potential given their history.
