He is regarded as one of the best Luchadores to ever set foot in WWE, but now it seems Rey Mysterio can't wait to get out.

The former world champion hasn't been seen on WWE TV since his match against Bad News Barrett the night after Wrestlemania back in April, it seems Mysterio suffered a wrist injury in that match and decided to take time off to heal properly.

The San Diego based wrestler has always been injury prone, earlier in his career his knees were the main cause of this, after subsequent knee surgery it looked like Rey was back to his old self but following his World Title win at Wrestlemania 22, The Master of the 619 was forced to undergo knee surgery again.

His knees continued to play havoc with his wrestling career and after the team of Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio failed to pick up the Tag Team Titles in late 2012, the Mexican took another leave of absence due to another knee injury. 

This time he was out for eight months and he would return for the last time in November last year saving CM Punk and Daniel Bryan to build up his involvement in the match at Survivor Series.

He then tried and failed to lift the tag titles at TLC this time partnered by The Big Show before one of the strangest moments of his career, when he entered this year's Royal Rumble at number 30 and was heavily booed by the crowd. 

Finally he took part in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania but failed to win as Cesaro lifted the oversized trophy. 

Since then Rey has been out with his wrist injury and news coming out of WWE suggested that Rey was set to become an ambassador for WWE and that was the reason his contract had been renewed, despite the fact that he wasn't wrestling.

There was a clause that WWE could use to automatically extend a superstars contract if they have missed a certain amount of time due to injuries and this then began speculation about CM Punk's future. 

Although it now seems that Rey doesn't want to remain as a WWE superstar, this week it was reported that he has stopped cashing his cheques with WWE and could be set to take action to find a way out of his current deal.

At almost 40 years old, who can blame Rey for wanting to wind his career down and possibly spend more time with his wife and two kids? He has dazzled audiences for the best part of two decades, maybe it's officially time he passed the torch to his protege Sin Cara.
