Rey Mysterio Returns At SmackDown 1000

WWE Confirms Rey Mysterio Will Return At SmackDown 1000

Confirming one of the worst kept secrets in wrestling at the moment, WWE released a statement today indicating that Rey Mysterio will be returning to the blue brand on October 16 as part of the Smackdown 1000 special. Mysterio has actually signed a two-year contract with WWE and so his appearance isn’t a one-time deal, though it remains to be seen how often he will be on TV.

SmackDown 1000 now has another number of significance attached to it. That number is 619, because Rey Mysterio is back!

The SmackDown legend will appear on the history-making episode, marking his return to the blue brand for the first time in more than four years.

The former WWE and World Heavyweight Champion is best remembered for energizing SmackDown with his signature aerial attack, unbelievable athleticism and never-say-die attitude. Mysterio was a cornerstone of Team Blue since the first brand split in March 2002 and helped define the SmackDown spirit.
