Mysterio appears on Talk is Jericho to discuss his start in wrestling at a young age, lucha libre and his knee issues.
This knee has given me issues in the past. I’ve had a chance now to sit down and watch a couple matches I had in ECW and even my first matches with WCW and just going back and watching those matches. All those falls I’d taken on my knees led up to the problems and surgeries.
Mysterio talks to WWE.com about changing his style and recovering from injury.
With this new procedure, it’s been floating around in the air. There’s not that much time left before the end of the year. I’m hoping that either Thanksgiving comes a little early or Christmas comes a little early
