Rey Mysterio, one of the most popular professional wrestlers of all time, is known for his high-flying acrobatic style and his signature mask. He has a large fan base and is especially popular among children. Cartoon Network announced that Rey Mysterio is set to star in a new animated series titled “Rey Mysterio vs. La Oscuridad” (The Darkness).
The show will be produced by Cartoon Network Latin America in collaboration with the Mexican animation studio ¡Viva Calavera! and executive produced by Mysterio himself. Now, the trailer for the cartoon series has been released.
Rey Mysterio animation series trailer drops
Rey Mysterio vs La Oscuridad is an upcoming animated series produced by Cartoon Network Latin America and WWE Studios. The series is based on the professional wrestler Rey Mysterio and will follow his adventures as he teams up with a young fan named Oscar to fight against the forces of evil.
Set in a world that blends Mexican culture with American wrestling, anime, and cartoon aesthetics, the series is scheduled to premiere on Cartoon Network Latin America in 2024. Mysterio, who had a great career in WWE, is not the first WWE superstar to feature in a cartoon, as many WWE superstars, mainly John Cena and Hulk Hogan, have appeared in cartoons over the years.
Mysterio has won numerous championships throughout his career, including the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, the WWE Championship, and the WWE Intercontinental Championship. He is also a two-time WWE Tag Team Champion and a three-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
Potential timeline for Mysterio’s recovery
In November 2023, Rey Mysterio suffered an injury to his right knee. The injury was reportedly sustained during a match against Santos Escobar on an episode of WWE SmackDown. Mysterio underwent surgery on November 14, 2023, and was expected to be out of action for six to eight weeks.
In Mysterio’s case, he will be able to return to the ring in January 2024, after just two months of recovery, suggesting that he may have had a less severe injury than some other athletes who have suffered torn menisci. Additionally, Mysterio is in excellent physical condition and is known for his quick healing ability.
However, Mysterio’s return to the ring may not mean that he is fully healed and may still be experiencing some pain or discomfort. He may need to continue managing his injury for some time to come. If all goes according to plan, Rey will be ready for the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 40.
