Rey Mysterio says he’s in the best shape of his life for latest WWE run

Reports indicate Rey Mysterio got a deal to return to WWE that likely includes at least some time off from house shows so he can keep himself as healthy as possible. He’s 43-years-old now with a lot of wear and tear on his body.

To hear him tell it, though, he’s feeling as good as he ever has:

“I did not leave and say goodbye forever. I did definitely leave with a vision of one day returning, and here we are. I’m back to dominate. I’m back to prove a point of why I’ve been in this industry for almost 30 years. I truly believe that I’m in the best shape of my life right now. I’m mentally prepared to come in and do what I have to do to keep demonstrating why I love this sport. Through time, as you age, as you get older, you live and learn. And in my case, like I said, being in this industry for almost 30 years, I think the best thing that could have happened to me is kind of just to part ways for almost four years, which is the time that I remained away from the WWE. But at the same time, I left in good terms so that this day would eventually happen, a return, and here we are now, almost four years later. I’m more mature. I’m rested. My mind, my body are fully rested, I’m healed up. I don’t think I could be living a better moment right now as we speak.”

Let’s hope he’s doing as well as he says and that his body holds up to the grueling WWE schedule, even if it’s a reduced one.
