Wrestling Icon Rey Mysterio Considered Retirement at WWE WrestleMania 2023

Wrestling legend Rey Mysterio is all set for a thrilling family clash at WWE WrestleMania next weekend, as he is expected to face his own son, Dominik Mysterio, in a highly anticipated match. In addition to this incredible father-son showdown, Mysterio has also been confirmed as the headliner for the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame class, with his long-time friend and fellow wrestler Konnan rumored to induct him on March 31st, the night before the first night of WrestleMania.

Over the years, Rey Mysterio has profoundly impacted the wrestling industry, revolutionizing it with his high-flying, acrobatic style. His innovative approach to wrestling has paved the way for smaller wrestlers to achieve top-star status, breaking the mold of what a wrestling superstar was traditionally expected to look like.

Mysterio's enduring legacy and widespread influence make him a fitting headliner for this year's Hall of Fame class. According to a report from WrestleVotes, Mysterio had previously discussed the possibility of retiring from wrestling with WWE Executive Vice President Triple H at WrestleMania Goes Hollywood.

However, plans have now changed. The source states, "At one point, it was discussed that Rey Mysterio would retire at WrestleMania. But I don't think next weekend is his last match, regardless of the Hall of Fame."

Mysterio's Retirement Plans Reevaluated Amid Dominik Storyline

Mysterio's potential retirement has yet to be mentioned as part of any televised storyline thus far.

Some insiders believe that the current storyline involving his son Dominik has reinvigorated Mysterio, prompting him to reconsider his retirement plans. "This storyline reinvigorated him a little bit. So I don't know if he agreed to do another full year, let's say, and retire at 40.

I don't know if he will drag this out with Dom until they feel it's complete," the source added. The 2023 WWE Hall of Fame class is already shaping up to be an impressive lineup, with Rey Mysterio set to be joined by The Great Muta, a Japanese wrestling icon, and the late Andy Kaufman, an entertainer and wrestling personality known for his memorable feud with Jerry "The King" Lawler.

More inductees are expected to be announced in the coming days, adding to the excitement surrounding this year's ceremony. With WrestleMania just around the corner, fans eagerly await the showdown between Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik and the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, where Mysterio will receive the ultimate recognition for his contributions to the world of professional wrestling.

As for his retirement plans, only time will tell whether Mysterio decides to hang up his mask for good or continue entertaining fans with his unparalleled athleticism and charisma.
