After returning to the WWE in 2018, Rey Mysterio went on many breaks. A couple of weeks before WrestleMania 36, Rey Mysterio returned to WWE RAW and defeated US Champion Andrade. According to many, WWE asked Rey Mysterio to return from break so that he could finish his storyline with Andrade. However, some say that the masked luchador will be taking a long break before making his return to the WWE ring.
Before the bell could ring, Andrade attacked Rey Mysterio with a dropkick to the midsection. However, Rey Mysterio fought back and delivered some deadly moves. Andrade cheated as he hit Rey Mysterio with a nasty back elbow which earned him a two-count. Rey Mysterio saw an opening and delivered the 619 before earning the victory off a top-rope splash.
