#4 WWE SmackDown Superstar Rey Mysterio may not wrestle after he turns 50 years old

One of the greatest babyfaces in WWE history, Rey Mysterio hasn't lost a foot in the ring and can wrestle at the same pace he did during the prime of his career.

A decorated three-time WWE World Champion, Mysterio departed the company in 2015, though he came back in 2018 and is currently a mainstay on WWE SmackDown.

Considering he recently turned 46 years old, Mysterio has already laid out his retirement plan and knows exactly until when he sees himself performing in the ring. On WWE's Chasing Glory podcast, hosted by Lillian Garcia, the luchador opened up about his retirement plans.

“I don’t see myself going past 50, that’s for sure. My body feels great right now. I’ve been doing new methods of therapy - STEM cells, hyperbaric chambers, cryo chambers, CBD’s, you know, a lot of things that benefit me. I think that has given me more longevity.”

Going by this revelation, Mysterio still has around four years in the tank, and his immediate future on WWE SmackDown looks intriguing due to his feud with Baron Corbin.

Though he's currently on his son Dominik's side, it wouldn't come as a surprise if WWE decides to have the father-son feud at least once before Mysterio retires. Most importantly, with his son having a bright future in WWE, the Lucha Libre legend can retire peacefully and see his son take forward his legacy in the ring.
