Rey Mysterio is all about keeping surprises under the luchador mask, but he did give fans a brief hint of potential for pugilism down the road in WWE.
Mysterio hopped on Pro Wrestling Bits with Alfred Konuwa to touch upon the potential for a knockout storyline involving him and Baron Corbin, who he and son Dominik have been feuding with during this WrestleMania season.
“I’m just waiting to see what is laid out for today. I have a little surprise that eventually will pop up, I’m just waiting for the right time for that and the whole SmackDown family will know.”
“Oh wow! Could you give me a hint at what the surprise is? Are you really gonna leave me out in the dark like this?” Konuwa jokes.
“I would love to, but it’s like I tell my wife ‘Oh, I got you something.’ ‘What is it?’ ‘Well, I can’t tell you.’ ‘C’mon! You can’t do that!’
“We do know that Corbin was a former Golden Gloves boxer, so we might go down that route.”
With The Royal Rumble happening tomorrow, Rey did mention how his most memorable moment had to be him winning the 30-man match after he entered at number two.
“Personally, the [Royal Rumble] that really stands out the most is when I won, just because so many things were centered that night. The fact that I came out No. 2, I came out in a lowrider, I was representing my people. It was a Rumble that a lot of fans wanted to see me win, but just thought it was going to be impossible, and as the night got closer to the end, the fans were like ‘I think he’s gonna pull it off.’” “The presence of being there, and just staying [in the final three] with Randy [Orton] and Triple H and dumping both of them out, was just such an iconic moment. Such a historical moment, for me, for my fans, for the ones who have been following me for years that thought that my opportunity was due, was happiness overall.”
