Jason Powell of Prowrestling.net is reporting that the real reason why Rey Mysterio missed last week’s Smackdown taping was because he had requested the day off quite sometime ago to attend a family function. There was speculation that Rey had asked for his release from the company and that was the reason why he missed the show, but we now know this NOT to be the case. Rey is close friends with Vickie Guerrero and Umaga, and since the two of them recently left the company, it’s being reported that the rumor of Rey wanting to leave may have stemmed from those departures.
