Author’s take

Pairing up a former Reality television star in his hometown against a legendary name like Rey Mysterio is some brilliant booking from the promotion. 

Hopefully, they are going to benefit from the exposure and the popularity that these two have. The news, meanwhile, confirms that Mysterio might not make his much-awaited return to WWE in the first half of 2018.
