Rey Mysterio Backstage at Lucha Underground TV Taping, Update on Goldust & Why He Wasn’t at Weekend WWE Live Events

Rey Mysterio to Lucha Underground?

rey mysterio According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Rey Mysterio was backstage at the 9/27 Lucha Underground television taping. Reportedly, there was a image of him backstage that surfaced on Twitter, but it was immediately taken down. 

Mysterio is still under contract with the WWE, and for most currently employed Superstars that would likely be a violation of company policy. That said, relations between the two are strained at best, and the last report we had on him claimed there’s been no communication from either side for months. Mysterio wasn’t even backstage for the WWE live event in San Diego, his billed hometown, over the summer. 

Goldust Update

Several of our readers sent in questions this weekend, wanting to know why Goldust – one half of the WWE tag champions – was not on the last WWE live event tour. Cody Rhodes (as Stardust) was working singles matches, and there was question as to whether his brother had sustained some sort of injury at last week’s TV tapings. 

Goldust was on vacation in Hawaii this weekend. He did return for RAW in Chicago this Monday, where they filmed the backstage segment.
