Rey Mysterio was last seen in WWE the night after WrestleMania 30 before it was announced that he had been released from his WWE contract earlier this year. 

This week, Rey Mysterio has stated that he is open to a WWE return, just not right now. But the real question is, does WWE miss Rey Mysterio?

REY REPLACEMENTS?

Sin Cara and Kalisto have been good replacements for the Luchador with Kalisto taking on a lot of the fanbase due to his new unique style and innovative offense.

Sin Cara was never going to be a great replacement for Rey because of the amount of botches the superstar used to deliver in each match. But since both superstars teamed up in NXT, becoming The Lucha Dragons and then re-debuted on the main roster, they seem to be stronger than ever. 

Rey spoke to a whole new dynamic of WWE fans and the company made a lot of money on merchandise sales because of the children who all wanted to wear masks like the Mexican star.

This seems to have come through for Sin Cara and Kalisto who have picked up on this fanbase and when WWE give them a push towards the tag team championships, their style will be very much welcomed once again. 

REY RETURN?

Kalisto and Cara will never be complete replacements for the man who was the ultimate underdog and did win the World Heavyweight Championship at 175 pounds. 

Rey was a hero to millions of children for over a decade in his time with WWE and the fact that the company made it believable that someone of that size could defeat The Big Show, was impressive on their behalf. 

The problem is, that there isn't anyone like Rey anymore. If there was someone close to his character on the roster now, it would have to be Dean Ambrose. The former United States Champion is always the underdog and is always routed for by the fans despite being out of his depth. This is what Rey was a few years ago, just a little lighter and sporting a mask. 

Rey's style meant that his career was plagued by injuries and whilst he would be great to bring back for a one-off or as a trainer, it just isn't a good idea for WWE to gamble on a superstar who has really weak knees when his style depends on them.

Whilst there are many WWE fans who would welcome Rey back with open arms, thinking him as a business choice, it wouldn't be best for business.
