Mysterio confirmed the injury and said over Christmas, he was at the four-week mark of his recovery.

Speaking on Baker Banter, Mysterio was asked about the possibility of him returning at WWE Royal Rumble.

"I'm really working hard on my physical therapy. I just had knee surgery, thanks to Santos Escobar, and his time will come eventually. I do hope that I can return for the Rumble, if not shortly after that. I am working very hard to make my return as soon as possible," he said.

It is unknown when Mysterio will return to television.
