Why is Rey Mysterio missing this week’s WWE Raw?

Rey Mysterio was originally announced for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw In Detroit in a match with Ver Mahan following the arrival of “The Lion” last week. Instead, Dominic Mysterio was paired up with the big guy and ended up in an ambulance after Mahan repeatedly locked him in place. It was Mysterio’s absence, according to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Watcher, due to a medical problem, not a case of WWE changing their minds at the last minute. This episode also included the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship which was postponed by a week due to Rhea Ripley being in the COVID-19 protocol.

Ray has been working on TV alongside his son for a couple of years now and the pair have talked a lot in interviews about Dominic taking over the Mysterio luchador legacy once his father retires. They also dropped the idea of ​​a split time and time again, even after teasing her for a while.

‘I have told my son from the beginning,’ said Mysterio, ‘that you would be better than your old man and I tell him over and over again.’ TMZ Sports last year. “I can’t wait for the day to be his own man, though in some way he is already, and it’s hard for me as a father to let him go and fly on his own, but I really believe in the power of his heart, and I’m not just saying this so he can seal it in his head, but It would be better than his old man.”

“This was definitely up to fate,” Ray told Bleacher Report after the 2021 WWE Draft. “We’ve talked about [the possibility of being split up]. I said, ‘If we finally broke up, it was meant to happen. You go your way, I’ll go mine. At the same time, it would have given my son some independence to grow up on his own. Pretty much the story we were telling before we got recruited into Raw. It was in the back of our minds, but it wasn’t anything to worry about. If anything, it’s probably good. It’s a change.”
