The return of Mysterio has been rumored for months and began to heat up when the former WWE Champion was announced as the featured pre-order character for WWE 2K19.

Mysterio worked All In on Sept. 1, teaming with Bandido and Fenix in the main event against The Young Bucks and Kota Ibushi. 

Since leaving the WWE in 2015, Mysterio has worked all over the world including Lucha Underground, AAA, NJPW, and a handful of Independent companies.
