According to, former WWE Champion and crowd favorite, Rey Mysterio, maybe taking steps toward a possible retirement. In an interview done with an all Spanish media outlet, Rey Mysterio hinted at leaving the WWE in the next three years to focus on other hobbies and interest. The interview was translated by the folks at wrestling zone.

Rey Mysterio considered among the most famous Hispanic wrestlers currently wrestling for three years said he will announce his retirement to devote himself to his family and rest his body.

"I have 22 years of college so I plan to take three years to announce my retirement in a historic event that is the most spectacular of which I starred in. For the rest of my career I'm planning to do even more spectacular and innovative. I hate to pigeonhole me and why I am presenting new keys and move because that is what I enjoy exposing my fans.

When my retirement is that, my body will thank you for not exploiting more because you feel tired for having hurt so many bumps and begin operations, but now thinking about my future to devote to my wife and my children."

The translation at the end was rough but overall you can make out most things that he is saying in the interview.

Rey Mysterio may soon be among the list of WWE wrestlers who are rumored to be heading towards retirement or taking time off from the company. Other guys like Triple H, Batista, and Chris Jericho are rumored to be in the same boat. If some of these other reports are true we can start to see why the WWE is heading towards a major push for new talent on RAW and Smackdown.

In other news the WWE has release Lance Cade. For those of you who can remember, Lance Cade was once part of the tag team Cade and Murdock. With Murdock he became a three time World Tag Team Champion.

Lance Cade debut with the company in 2003 and was release in 2008 after a highly publicized incident on a plane that resulted in Cade having a seizure and requesting emergency medical attention. Exact details were never made known although Jim Ross wrote it off as "a major league mistake."

Cade was brought back in late 2009 but never made it onto the active roster. There was some thoughts that we may see a Cade and Murdock reunion, but the plans never materialize.
