Exclusive: Rey Mysterio To Be Backstage At WWE RAW Tonight

Rey Mysterio will be in Buffalo for tonight's WWE RAW. Vince McMahon notified his inner circle of this over the weekend.

The creative team is actively working on concepts to reintroduce him as a regular starting soon.

It remains to be determined if Rey will be on television tonight. He may simply meet with officials and begin plotting his return. It should be noted that there is no guarantee that Mysterio will return to WWE television, although it appears likely.

Rey Mysterio was last seen backstage at a recent Lucha Underground TV tapings in Los Angeles where the he visited friends with his son, Dominic, who has also appeared in the past on WWE TV.

Rey has made it no secret that he is burned out, like CM Punk, and is looking to take a break from wrestling once his WWE contract expires in the spring. Sources say he is interested in acting in Mexico as well as doing other non-wrestling projects.

"He's been doing this for over 20 years and between the injuries and the mental burn out, he has no interest in AAA, Underground or re-upping with WWE," a source said.
