Rey Mysterio returns to WWE as surprise Royal Rumble entrant

Look who’s back!

Booyaka booyaka!

Rey Mysterio, who had been the subject of recent rumors that he might sign with Impact Wrestling, made his return to WWE tonight (Sun., Jan. 28, 2018) as entrant number 27 in the Royal Rumble match at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

He was wildly cheered.

Don’t worry, he came out just one spot before Roman Reigns.

He looks to be in great shape. There’s no telling if this is a one-off or if he’s signed on to work a more consistent schedule.

He made it until the last five when he was eliminated by Finn Balor.
