Fans will be able to witness the much-awaited return of Rey Mysterio as the masked legend has been out of the WWE ring for weeks. Rey Mysterio was last seen in the WWE ring on March 16, 2020, when he defeated US Champion Andrade. This also finished his storyline with Andrade.
Money in the Bank 2020 is scheduled to take place on May 10, 2020. The event was originally scheduled to take place at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland, but the venue cancelled all shows due to the coronavirus outbreak. WWE is yet to announce any changes for the event.
