Mysterio Says He Didn't Expect Del Rio To Return To WWE, But He's Happy He Did

Rey Mysterio recently sat down with the folks at WrestleTalk TV and spoke about the recent surprise WWE return of Alberto Del Rio.

Mysterio admitted that he didn’t expect Del Rio to ever return to WWE, but explained why he is happy he did.

“I actually didn’t expect (it), but I’m glad he did,” Rey said during the interview, which you can watch above. “If you ever get the opportunity to go back, and that’s where you want to be, why not? Take advantage of your time. Your time is a blink of a second.”

Rey would elaborate, pointing out the small window of opportunity that wrestlers have to make a living, particularly on the WWE stage.

“I started at a very young age with WWE, and I was still in my prime,” Mysterio explained. “I enjoyed it so much, I have no regrets, and I’m enjoying my life as it is. He deserves to be there. They’re in lack of Latin talent, he’s a perfect Superstar to be an idol for the hispanic population.”

As noted recently, Mysterio said he is open to a WWE return if the opportunity were to ever present itself. Mysterio told the Gorilla Position Podcast the following regarding the possibility of returning to WWE:

“Never say never,” he said. “I didn’t leave on bad terms. There was no dispute or bad intention on me leaving. So, if there is an opportunity down the road and both parties agree to it, why not.”
