During an interview with The Mirror, Rey Mysterio revealed there is a good chance he will re-sign with WWE, as he discussed his WWE Royal Rumble appearance.
The master of the 619 spoke exclusively to Neil Docking about his surprise appearance, as well as his last Rumble showing where he was booed by fans and his work with 5 Star Wrestling. Below are some highlights of the interview, with a h/t to The Mirror for the transcription.
Re-Signing With WWE
“I want to say that there is a big possibility that I will be back. [We’re] figuring out what the situation is, you know from both ends. But there is definitely a positive feedback on behalf of the fans, on behalf of the WWE staff and behalf of myself man. I think we’re possibly going to sit down and negotiate something where we can both work together and have a good time and enjoy.”
Previous Rumble Experiences
“When they are expecting to see a face that they want to see and you give them the wrong one, then they are going to boo. Not at you, but at the way that show was written. So this time I was very fortunate to be number 27, to come out after three years and to have that emotional feeling of being loved and being wanted to be seen again. To be able to be seen again in front of the WWE Universe, was just incredible.”
Working With 5 Star Wrestling
“This project has been talked about for quite some time now. To put an event like this together, it can’t be done overnight. We have stars like Rob Van Dam, Jack Swagger… stars that have been in the WWE roster, that have headlined numerous pay-per-views and now we’re here, we’re here for the Liverpool fans, for the fans out here in Europe, that have been loyal fans.
“I have nothing but respect for that fanbase because wherever there is an event, you know a WWE event or a 5 Star event, or an independent wrestling event, when they see the big names, they show up and they have a good time because we put on a good show.”
How It Felt To Return To WWE
“It’s indescribable… It was one of those moments that you had to be there, to really live it. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever felt that type of reaction, in a massive fanbase, like it was in Philly. Man, it was just – unforgettable. It was just one of those feelings that you’re going to cherish and it will be with me for the rest of my life.”
