Rey Mysterio having “problems”
Jan 2, 2013 - by Dr. Jerry Wiseman
Former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio has been pulled from WWE events after he requested time off to deal with what is being described as an “ongoing family crises.”
There is fear that Mysterio has reverted back to excessive drug use, something he had been suspended for last year after having surgery. Mysterio was set to return to the ring after being off for a substantial amount of time recovering from knee surgery when he failed a WWE Wellness Test and was suspended for 60 days.
While Mysterio denied testing dirty those close to the Luchadore said he had long had a problem with prescription drugs and it had finally caught up to him. The 60 day suspension cam in April and was his second suspension for testing dirty. Mysterio was said to have been confused by the result and claimed that the dirty result had to be due to a supplement he had been taking. The test showed positive for amphetamines which in some cases energy drinks and some weight loss supplements can cause a false positive in a urine sample.
The “family crises” is one of the best kept secrets in professional wrestling though and with the “instant news effect” of the internet and with little information being known this leaves many wondering if Mysterio will again be suspended (which if it happens would be his third and according to policy he would be terminated by the WWE) or if he will end up in rehab.
