The injuries I have sustained and been able to come back from are nothing more than a miracle. I don’t know if I am able to face Chavo Guerrero at Summer Slam and I don’t know if I will ever be able to face Chavo Guerrero again.
Chavo is in the prime of his career and I am very worried that Rey Mysterio’s return at Summer Slam would not only be my return but also my last match.
The last time I faced Chavo Guerrero, you inflicted so much pain in my leg and you made me say, “I quit”, so Chavo, I beg you again Chavo, I get on my hands and knees Chavo, please, PLEASE Chavo, don’t make me say “I quit” again. I never want to say “I quit” again….”
