Everyone gets slowed down at some point. Wrestling is a difficult and physical sport and that is going to become a problem. Eventually, every wrestler is going to need a break and that can often come during a pretty big run. It is certainly still the case in modern wrestling and it was the case again recently, with an absence leading to a major match to be postponed.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Rey Mysterio was banged up from some recent matches and needed some time off. This was part of the reasons for the December 13 RKBronament finals to be postponed, along with injuries to Montez Ford. The match has since taken place with Mysterio and Ford involved, with the Street Profits winning. There is nothing to suggest that Mysterio will be missing any more time.
Mysterio is great when he’s healthy. Check out some of his better efforts:
Opinion: This is something that happens to everyone at times and it seems to have been Mysterio’s time here. What matters is that nothing serious seems to have happened and he is already back in the ring. Mysterio is already in the twilight of his career and hopefully he can stay in the ring as long as he possibly can. It is still a treat to see him out there and it would be nice to see that going forward.
What do you think of Mysterio’s recent work? Is he better in a team or on his own? Let us know in the comments below.
