— Rey Mysterio is dealing with a minor injury, however, it is significant enough that it has caused WWE to remove him from the ongoing Smackdown World Cup tournament. According to f4wonline.com, Mysterio is suffering an unspecified injury to his lower body, either his foot or ankle, and that he was spotted in a walking boot at last Friday’s Smackdown show.
— The injury is not believed to be serious but Mysterio is going to be sidelined long enough that his participation in the World Cup couldn’t happen and so WWE made the decision to replace him with Mustafa Ali in the tournament. The report laid out a rough timetable of a “few weeks” for Mysterio to be back. He last wrestled for WWE at the end of October in Mexico City.
