Rey Mysterio Talks About His Return To The Ring, Changing His In-Ring Style

WWE.com has published an exclusive interview with Rey Mysterio. Here are some highlights of what Rey said about:

When He’ll Be Back In The Ring: “With this new procedure, it’s been floating around in the air. There’s not that much time left before the end of the year. I’m hoping that either Thanksgiving comes a little early or Christmas comes a little early.”

The Injury That’s Kept Him Out Of Action: “What’s slowed me down in my career are [anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)] tears in my left knee. After the first one in 1997, they started happening one after another. We’ve used everything we could in terms of re-attaching my ACL [with ligaments from] my body. Now, we’ve gone into cadavers to reattach them. That’s what’s slowed me down, my left knee. My right one, knock on wood, is all good. The rest of my body, thank God, is all good.”

His Recent Visit To The WWE Performance Center: “Yes, I had the chance to go in the ring a couple of times. It’s an incredible place, definitely the top training center that I have been in.”

Getting Back In The Ring: “It always comes back to conditioning. No matter how much cardio you do — running or biking or whatever — it’s never the same as being in the ring. That was the first thing I felt.”

Having To Change His In-Ring Style: “After so many surgeries, I had to modify my game. I know what I can and can’t do in order to keep performing for a long period of time. It won’t be hard. I’ve done it in the past after my previous surgeries. I don’t think I realized it at the time, but I tend to modify certain moves and my landings, as well. I’m sure once I get back into the ring, it’ll all start coming back into place and it’ll feel normal to me. I definitely won’t be able to do certain things that I’ve done in the past, but there’s no way I shouldn’t be able to replace those moves with others.”
