Rey Mysterio suspended
for 60 days
WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio has been suspended for 60 days after breaching the company’s wellness policy for the second time, on April 26th 2012.
Employees are allowed three periods of failed tests before being fired from the company.
Another clear embarrassment for WWE was unwelcomed.
Other previous employees serving suspensions include Evan Bourne, who has just been cleared from suspension and set to return shortly, as will Sin Cara in a couple of months’ time.
Should Mysterio gain one more suspension he will end his WWE career via a suspension release, the first ever in WWE history since its wellness policy came into place.
Classed as boring, outdated or simply uninteresting since his lengthy absence, Rey needed to return to WWE in a very strong position unclouded in judgement by its audience.
Mysterio’s first suspension caused intense backstage friction between the lockeroom where Rey played political and wouldn’t drop his mid level title as per McMahon’s request, whom felt belittled by the belligerency, which has since been shelved.
Mysterio’s options, as well as continually suffering numerous injuries, are somewhat strained.
Mysterio’s last TV appearance was at the Slammy awards on Raw in December 2011, though his recent last match was with Alberto Del Rio after Summerslam 2011.
