Reason Why Rey Mysterio Wasn’t At RAW


Rey Mysterio wasn't present at last week's episode of Monday Night RAW as he was undergoing another round of stem cell treatments.

Rey Mysterio appeared on RAW last week, starting a new storyline that may result in his son, Dominick, debuting for WWE. After appearing in a segment teasing his retirement, Dominick appeared and reminded his dad how he had promised to be his tag team partner for his professional wrestling debut.

Despite starting this narrative, Mysterio was missing from this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. Turns out it was because the legendary luchador was undergoing another round of stem cell treatment.

Mysterio updated his fans via his Instagram account, uploading a picture of himself, still masked, of course, explaining the procedure. The injections have apparently helped to alleviate his knee issues, helping him to move better compared to a few years ago.

“I had an Intrathecal Stem Cell application yesterday by Dr. Halpert & have to admit that I could not have been in better hands despite the size of the needle ? that was never showed to me until after the procedure! #LoveTheBioXStaff @bioxcellerator_ is giving me & those who have been here a healthier & better way of living!??…??? Need info ….. talk to my homie @iowahawksfan06″

Once Rey Mysterio returns, it is believed that Dominick will eventually take up the moniker of “Prinicpe Mysterio”—a name that Rey Mysterio trademarked earlier this year.
