After it was reported recently that Rey Mysterio would be making his WWE return at SmackDown 1000 on Tuesday, October 16th (check that out here), today WWE has now made it official with the following announcement:
SmackDown 1000 now has another number of significance attached to it. That number is 619, because Rey Mysterio is back!
The SmackDown legend will appear on the history-making episode, marking his return to the blue brand for the first time in more than four years.
The former WWE and World Heavyweight Champion is best remembered for energizing SmackDown with his signature aerial attack, unbelievable athleticism and never-say-die attitude. Mysterio was a cornerstone of Team Blue since the first brand split in March 2002 and helped define the SmackDown spirit.
What impact will The Biggest Little Man have when he makes his triumphant return to the brand he helped build? Find out when SmackDown 1000 airs on Oct. 16 live on USA Network at 8/7 C.
Mysterio now joins The Undertaker, WWE Hall Of Famer Edge (reportedly), WWE Hall Of Famer Teddy Long, Vickie Guerrero, Michelle McCool and Torrie Wilson. Additionally, it’s been noted that the company was trying to secure The Rock for the show, however he is currently filming the ‘Fast & Furious’ spin-off ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ with Jason Statham in England which may conflict with him appearing.
SmackDown 1000 comes your way live on the USA Network on October 16th at 8PM EST.
