Rey Mysterio is heading back to AAA this summer.
The company announced today that Mysterio will appear at the Verano de Escandalo event which will take place on June 3 at Plaza de Toros La Monumental in Monterrey, Mexico. It wasn’t announced who he would face, with AAA saying that more details would be announced at a later time. Mysterio last wrestled for AAA back in 2016 during a tour of Japan.
This does not seem to affect the chances of Mysterio potentially heading back to the WWE, as he has kept himself open to a number of dates in different promotions all around the world. In addition to appearing at this year’s Royal Rumble, he has also been named owner of Aro Lucha and has appeared on shows that they have taped. He is also set for the Greatest Royal Rumble event later this month and has expressed interest in doing dates for New Japan Pro Wrestling, though nothing has been confirmed.
Mysterio is currently recovering from a torn biceps injury, though he is expected back shortly.
