While he is very happy to be back in the WWE, Rey Mysterio believes his four-year absence was actually a very good thing for him.

In a behind the curtain interview released by the WWE chronicling SmackDown 1000, Mysterio talked candidly about his departure and his eventual return.

“I left on good terms so this day [his return] would eventually happen and here we are now, almost four years later. I’m more mature, I’m rested, my body and mind are fully healed up. I don’t think I could be living a better moment right now as we speak,” says Mysterio.

He also spoke about his feelings about once again being a part of Team Blue.

“SmackDown, from day one has been my brand,” Mysterio said. “For not only myself, but a lot of legends have grown with this brand. The likes of Eddie Guerrero — rest in peace — Batista, John Cena, The Rock — when I first came into WWE, The Rock was still part of SmackDown — Triple H, Brock Lesnar, and Randy Orton. When you talk about all of those names, you truly understand how stacked the SmackDown roster was. To be one of those guys that eventually branched out, put in the work, and became who I am now, it feels good to come back and be home, because this truly is my home.”

During SmackDown 1000, Mysterio wrestled current WWE U.S. Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in a qualifying match for the WWE World Cup. Mysterio beat Nakamura to earn his spot in the tournament which will be held during WWE Crown Jewel.
