Notes on Rey Mysterio and Trent Beretta
– It was initially reported that Rey Mysterio was going to be part of the WWE Smackdown world cup tournament but Mustafa Ali was announced instead. In regards to why Mysterio wasn’t included in the tournament, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that Mysterio is dealing with either a foot or ankle injury. Meltzer wrote the following in regards to Mysterio…
“He was in Indianapolis backstage with a walking boot on. He’s not expected to be out more than a few weeks but wasn’t going to be able to do the tournament.”
It was noted by Fightful.com that Mysterio was originally supposed to cut a promo on the show. While he replaced Mysterio, Ali is not expected to be joining the Smackdown brand.
– Road Dogg has taken fire recently for giving his opinion about Bret Hart, although it seems Trent Beretta has more motivation not to like him. Trent’s post came in response to Matt Menard, who himself was making a joke. Road Dogg had said that he was a better sports entertainer than Bret Hart, something he stood by when criticized for it.
Menard joked: “Daddy Magic is a better Sports Entertainer than Road Dogg.”
This led to the response from Trent, who said that Road Dogg was nice to him in person but then trashed him behind his back on his personal Facebook.
He wrote: “Road dogg was always really nice to my face and then years later he shit talked me on his personal Facebook. Ed screencapped it and sent it to me it hurt my feelings tbh.”
