– WWE RAW Superstar Rey Mysterio noted in a recent interview with the Baltimore Sun that he is not 100% physically.
“I feel like I need a tuneup (laughs). Before I had my biceps surgery, it was my knee. I would wake up limping every morning. Now, I wake up stiff from my right arm. If it’s not one thing it’s the other, but we’re still here pushing strong, man.”
Mysterio said also that he’s learned a lesson when it comes to high flying moves.
“There are guys that tell you, ‘You’ve got to take it easy, man. You can’t be doing all that crazy stuff. Pick out your high-flying moves; don’t do all of them at once.’ And back then I would go, ‘Yeah, sure, thank you.’ But then I’d turn around and say, ‘Hell no. I’m going to do everything I can. That’s the way I wrestle; that’s the way I do it.’
Well, now I’ve learned my lesson. After five knee surgeries and three biceps surgeries, I’m like, ‘Man, I should have listened to them.’ But when you’re hungry and you want to be successful and you were raised a certain way, it doesn’t matter who tells you to slow down. Sometimes you just have to learn the hard way, and that’s by getting injured.”
