The Miami Herald recently spoke with Rey Mysterio, who is out of action dealing with injuries. Here are some highlights:

Rey hoping to be back in time for WrestleMania 28: Especially after the injury that I had, I want to make sure to work hard throughout this therapy so I can go ahead and be back by then.”

2012 WWE Hall of Famer Mil Mascaras: “I think he definitely brought something that was very unique to pro wrestling. You had seen masked wrestlers before but nothing like Mil Mascaras. Not only did he revolutionize the sport in the United States but also in Japan and in Mexico. You would never see that man wear the same outfit twice. His style in the ring, his presence, the designs on his masks, everything was so different every time. I believe he did revolution, to a certain degree, the sport in all three countries.”

The importance of luchadores speaking English when wrestling in the US: “I think it’s very important. It’s important to understand the culture, to speak the language, to be able to get around and speak to your teammates. It’s important to be able to express yourself in the ring and on the microphone to the WWE Universe. I think it is a big factor in this industry now.”
