Rey MysterioFormer WCW and TNA Wrestling star Konnan gave an update on the MLW Radio Show regarding Rey Mysterio's whereabouts. Konnan said:

"Somebody seems to think that Rey was suspended for the wellness policy. Absolutely incorrect. He is dealing with a family situation right now and he does have permission to be out.  They know what's going on and he will be back soon. He is not injured. He doesn't have any drug issues – and I'm not covering for him because he's my boy… but he's cool, he'll back soon."

Konnan's comments confirm an earlier report by Wrestlezone as to why Mysterio was pulled from recent WWE house shows. Mysterio is scheduled to return to action at this weekend's live event in Los Angeles at the Staples Center.
