Big WWE News: Update on Rey Mysterio’s Knee Surgery!

According to, Rey Mysterio will be having surgery on his damaged ACL. Instead of the traditional "more invasive" surgery, Rey will undergo a lesser surgery that will allow him to return to the ring sooner. Originally the fear was that he would be out 6-9 months, but with the lesser surgery, he could be back in time for the Royal Rumble. Rey wants to get back into the ring as soon as possible, but the lesser surgery will only be a quick fix as he will need full surgery down the line to fully repair the knee.

Mysterio did appear at a scheduled book signing last night in Ridgewood, NJ. The signing drew around 500 fans, and Mysterio was said to not be selling the injury in any way.
