Rey Mysterio took to Twitter ahead of Monday Night Raw this week with a cryptic message, possibly teasing his retirement from professional wrestling.
“So I’ve come to St. Paul, MN with my family,” Mysterio wrote. “@WWE is allowing me some time on #Raw to address everything on my mind for the last couple of weeks. I hope you’ll all join and support me as you’ve done over these years. Thank you.”

At 44-years-old, Mysterio is currently on a two-year contract with the WWE. He signed it in September 2018 with an opt-out clause added in after 18 months, but that would still keep him under a deal until March 2020.
Mysterio lost back-to-back decisions against Andrade in a Two-out-of-Three Falls match on Monday Night Raw last week, and gave a despondent interview afterwards.
WWE.com added fuel to the speculation fire prior to Raw getting underway.
“Rey Mysterio seemed to have more questions than answers after losing a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match in a clean sweep against Andrade last week, cryptically stating he wasn’t sure what the future held for his in-ring career,” WWE.com’s preview wrote. “Those questions seemingly continued through a series of tweets Monday afternoon, the last of which revealed that The Ultimate Underdog had been granted time to speak to the WWE Universe on this evening’s Raw.
