He said: “Never say never. 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?
“At this stage of my career and my personal life, I’m enjoying it (time off). It’s what I want to do. I wanted to spend time with my kids and my wife, and I wanted my body to heal up. So, I’m going through that right now.”
The WWE have always had a strong connection with its latino audience through its latino stars. Alberto Del Rio received a huge pop the other night when he return at Hell in a Cell and his return will likely boost ratings as it will encourage a huge proportion of the latino audience to watch WWE programming again.
A return of Rey Mysterio to the WWE would have the same effect, or an even bigger one if he was to face-off against Del Rio in the ring for a match.
But like he said, he is focused on his health and family at this stage of his career, so he should only be brought back for a special occasion. Maybe a couple more WrestleMania shows or something like that.
