In a recent interview with The New York Post to promote this weekend’s WrestleMania, Rey Mysterio discussed several topics, including when he was aware of his WWE Hall of Fame induction, potential retirement and more.
Highlights of the interview are below:
On when he was aware of the WWE Hall of Fame induction: “I was pulled aside by Triple H and he mentioned to me, Rey, we would love to induct you into the Hall of Fame. It was very shocking to me, it was like wow, I remember the first words that came out of my mouth were just like, I’m not ready to retire and he’s like, no, it’s not like that.”
On when he thinks he may retire from in-ring competition: “I’m still having a hard time digesting it, because Hall of Fame’s are supposed to happen when you retire, when you’re getting close to retirement. I don’t feel neither of them are close for me, but it’s a huge blessing. I think I do have a number, and I want to keep it at that and my number is 50, I’m hoping at 50 I can go ahead and say it’s been an incredible ride and I think it’s time for me to step back now.”
