Rey Mysterio’s Storyline Exit
Unfortunately, he was unsuccessful at defending his United States title against Logan Paul at the event. Mysterio had been working through a torn meniscus for approximately three months before heading into Crown Jewel.
The injury worsened slowly over time, and Rey agreed to drop the championship to Paul so he could undergo minor surgery. The SmackDown after Jewel saw Rey get attacked by Santos Escobar.

This gave Rey a reason to take some time off television. It also sets up an interesting storyline and feud between the two stars heading into the 2024 Royal Rumble.
There’s a good chance that Rey will enter the match, either before the big event or as a “surprise entrant. At this point in his career, it’s unlikely he’ll win the bout.
However, as his full recovery is expected by sometime in January, if all goes well, he’ll not only be at the Royal Rumble, but he’ll be around for the Road to WrestleMania season. Here’s hoping he’ll also be a part of WM 40.
