Over the weekend, it was reported Rey Mysterio Jr. suffered a torn biceps. Mysterio suffered the injury during a match in Waterbury, CT on Friday night.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter was the first to report on Mysterio’s injury, though this was before he had seen a doctor. While Mysterio felt he had torn his biceps, the Observer is now reporting his injury was only diagnosed a grade 1 level strain. A mildly strained biceps should heal on his own within weeks.
The Lucha Libre focussed website, Lucha Blog, tweeted out an update last night:

Rey Mysterio Jr’s Upcoming Schedule
News that Mysterio’s injury is not as severe as once feared should be welcome news to fans of NJPW. On March 25th, Mysterio is scheduled to face Jushin Liger at Strong Style Evolved.
The favorable diagnosis is also a good sign Mysterio will be able to compete over WrestleMania weekend as well.
