As we’ve reported over the past few weeks, Rey Mysterio’s knee is in bad shape and he is expected to have surgery on his ACL shortly.
Batista’s brutal attack on Mysterio after their match at Survivor Series and the stretcher job that followed was the setup for him taking time off.
Many within WWE are concerned that this may be it for Mysterio’s career. He could be out up to 6-9 months from the surgery, but the full extent of his recovery will not be known until after the procedure.
Mysterio, who recently returned to action following a 30-day Wellness suspension, might miss Wrestlemania 26. Should he miss WrestleMania, it would be the third time in the past four years that he’d miss WWE’s showcase event due to injuries.
