Former world champion makes stunning return at Royal Rumble


Former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio made a stunning return at the 2018 Royal Rumble.

Not being the main event of the card as is usual custom, the Royal Rumble didn't exactly have the feel of greatness. Not a ton of shocks for much of the event. That is until Hurricane Helms and NXT's Adam Cole made appearances.

However, neither guy made the crowd pop as did WWE legend Rey Mysterio.

Rey was given plenty of spots during the match.

Royal Rumble 2018 kicked off live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, January 28 at 5 p.m. ET.

During an interview with ESPN, Mysterio, 43, responded to rumors about a potential appearance in the 2018 Royal Rumble after the company posted a video listing five superstars fans want to see return for the match.

"Never say never, right?" Mysterio said. "I actually did get a chance to see that post, and I was surprised, because the post is one thing, but there hasn't been any communication between either side. Again, anything can change. Things happen last minute sometimes, and that's what makes it exciting for the fans. The fact that they don't know ahead of time lets you know they're being surprised."

"I would definitely love to go back and finish up. Whether it's one year or whatever the case might be. Whether it's a farewell. I owe a lot to that company. That company gave me such an amazing opportunity, and I took advantage of every single moment I was with WWE to the fullest. I wouldn't want to just be remembered as 'Oh, man, he never re-signed and he never came back.' I would definitely love to come back and do a last run and say goodbye to my WWE fans. Tell them goodbye in a proper way."

Never say never is right.
