WWE.COM: How do you think you’ll have to adapt your in-ring style when you come back?

MYSTERIOAfter so many surgeries, I had to modify my game. I know what I can and can’t do in order to keep performing for a long period of time. It won’t be hard. I’ve done it in the past after my previous surgeries. I don’t think I realized it at the time, but I tend to modify certain moves and my landings, as well. I’m sure once I get back into the ring, it’ll all start coming back into place and it’ll feel normal to me. I definitely won’t be able to do certain things that I’ve done in the past, but there’s no way I shouldn’t be able to replace those moves with others.

WWE.COM: Do you have a target date for your return to the squared circle?

MYSTERIOWith this new procedure, it’s been floating around in the air. There’s not that much time left before the end of the year. I’m hoping that either Thanksgiving comes a little early or Christmas comes a little early.

WWE.COM: You recently announced that you’ll be a part of WWE’s upcoming tour of Mexico. What does it mean for you to go back to Mexico?

MYSTERIOIt feels good. That’s where I came from. Those are my roots, my people. To be able to go back and treat them with my presence and whatever else I can give to them is fulfilling.

WWE.COM: Any chance you’ll get involved in the action during the tour?

MYSTERIOI think if the crowd really wants it, why not? Why not try?
