Nixed Plan For Rey Mysterio’s All In Match

Rey Mysterio is set to compete in a 6 man tag match at the upcoming All In event but a recent report reveals that he was originally considered to be part of a big singles match instead.

According to Pwinsider, at one point Mysterio was being considered to be IWGP World Champion Kenny Omega’s opponent for the show but the promoters Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks decided against it.

Rey will now team up with Fenix and Bandido to face the team of the Young Bucks and Kota Ibushi. On the other hand, Omega’s match for this mega event is yet to be announced.
