Rey MysterioInjured WWE star Rey Mysterio, who will be appearing at tonight's WrestleMania 28 ticket kickoff party, recently spoke to The Miami Herald and spoke on a number of topics, including his current injury status. Below are some highlights:

On being healthy enough in time to return for WrestleMania 28: "Especially after the injury that I had, I want to make sure to work hard throughout this therapy so I can go ahead and be back by then."

Mil Mascaras entering the WWE Hall of Fame next year: "I think he definitely brought something that was very unique to pro wrestling. You had seen masked wrestlers before but nothing like Mil Mascaras. Not only did he revolutionize the sport in the United States but also in Japan and in Mexico. You would never see that man wear the same outfit twice. His style in the ring, his presence, the designs on his masks, everything was so different every time. I believe he did revolution, to a certain degree, the sport in all three countries."

The importance of Luchadores speaking English in the US: "I think it’s very important. It’s important to understand the culture, to speak the language, to be able to get around and speak to your teammates. It’s important to be able to express yourself in the ring and on the microphone to the WWE Universe. I think it is a big factor in this industry now."
