WWE announced today that Rey Mysterio will be returning to the company for Smackdown’s 1000th episode.
— WWE (@WWE) October 7, 2018
This will be Mysterio’s first appearance on Smackdown in more than four years and was last seen in WWE as a surprise entrant during this year’s Royal Rumble. Mysterio made his name on Smackdown in 2002 during the first brand split and was a key factor to Smackdown’s success.
S.A.M.’s Spiel: WWE is really going all-out for Smackdown 1000 and it deserves it. Smackdown had many fantastic years during the initial brand split and has currently been a fantastic product. It will be interesting to see what Mysterio will do at Smackdown 1000 and I am eagerly awaiting the milestone show.
