Samoa Joe versus Rey Mysterio Squash Match at WrestleMania Not Due to Injury

Apr 10, 2019 - by James Walsh

Despite speculation to the contrary, the Samoa Joe vs. Rey Mysterio match from WrestleMania wasn’t kept short due to Mysterio’s ankle injury. On Tuesday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the match was as short as it was due to the need to cut time from the PPV, which ran nearly seven and a half hours including the pre-show.

Mysterio suffered an injury on last week’s Raw, but was cleared in time for WrestleMania.
