Reason Rey Mysterio missed the Royal Rumble

Jan 29, 2023 - by Steve Gerweck

Dave Meltzer reports:

Rey Mysterio was injured last night during the Loredo Smackdown tapings against Karrion Kross. He was going to be in the Rumble, but that spot was changed. What happened was they did a spot where he’s supposed to come out, but didn’t come out, and then Dominik comes out. I think they were supposed to do some teases with them at in the Rumble to set up their WrestleMania match.

    They should not have done the angle with dom and reys mask, never should’ve announced reys entrance and should have inserted someone else into the spot, technically the 30th contestant was never eliminated and cody eliminated himself by exiting over the top rope

    ..and this is why Trips is head of booking and not you.

    Not to mention…

    I think it was during the Women’s Rumble match that one of the women went through the top & middle ropes, yet apparently, they were called as being eliminated, despite not going over the top rope.

    Honestly, if people think that Trips is better at running WWE than VinnyMac, this shows their blind loyal to WWE.

    I guess they also decided Kofi was eliminated after making a big deal of maybe/maybe not? Truthfully I hope he’s OK – they never showed him after that, so I’m guessing maybe he was supposed to land on the chair without it falling over? But I’m not a booking professional either.

    I think Triple H is better than Vince at running WWE and I’m not afraid to say so. But then whether I’m loyal to a company that doesn’t even know me doesn’t matter as much to me as it might to someone else so, who knows?
