Rey MysterioRey Mysterio Speaks on Recent Illness

During a recent chat with ESPN.go.com, Rey Mysterio had the following to say about his recent illness, which caused him to miss several WWE events:

I think when we are hurt or we're sick we have to stay on focus. Not to long ago, I wrestled on a Monday night and I had food poisoning. I was in the ring with food poisoning. Sometimes you don't realize our health. They just see us perform out there and say that was good. But in the back, the cameras aren't recording anymore and you tend to yourself. In this case, I had to go to the doctor's right away.

WWE Holding Casting Call For New Divas

According to the breakdown, WWE is seeking women between the ages of 18 and 30 who have "charismatic personalities, beautiful faces and great bodies." Resumes, as well as headshots and bikini body shots, are being requested.

It should be noted that wrestling experience was not mentioned as a necessity in the casting breakdown, and that WWE Divas "instantly gain a huge fan base, travel the world and appear on television in 600 million homes worldwide."
