After teasing retirement from wrestling, WWE has confirmed that Rey Mysterio will be making his return to WWE Raw next week.
Mysterio teased taking off his mask and retiring after being defeated by Andrade, but it was his son, Dominick who convinced him otherwise, although it is unknown if he will be returning as well next week.
WWE posted the following about his return:
Rey Mysterio returns to Raw next Monday night
Two weeks after his son Dominick pulled him from the brink of retirement, Rey Mysterio will return to Raw next Monday night.
A crushing 2-out-of-3 Falls Match loss to Andrade nearly caused The Ultimate Underdog to hang up his mask for good, but an inspirational appeal from his son – who wants to team up with his father in WWE someday – led Mysterio to change his mind. Although many in the WWE Universe support the masked icon’s decision to continuing competing in WWE, his critics question whether this choice was a wise one.
Regardless, Mysterio is ready for the next challenge when he returns to Monday Night Raw next week, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.
