WWE fans will have the opportunity to see Rey Mysterio live and in person as “The Master of The 619” is back on a full-time basis.
The masked marvel’s return begins next Tuesday on SmackDown 1000 when he faces Shinsuke Nakamura in a WWE World Cup Qualifying Match. This won’t be a one-off for the blue brand as he has been added to a few more SmackDown LIVE television events.
After WWE announced on Wednesday that Mysterio would be in action at six live events — two dual-brand live events and four featuring SmackDown LIVE talent — his schedule was updated to include three additional SmackDown LIVE television events. He will appear at shows taking place on October 23 in Newark, N.J., October 30 in Atlanta, Ga., and November 6 in Manchester, England.
Here is his updated schedule.
While it definitely looks like Mysterio will be joining SmackDown LIVE, it’s still not official. WWE.com still has him listed as Alumni, not to mention that there’s the possibility that he can cross brands as a “free agent.”
