Despite rumors of injuries potentially plaguing the match, Rey Mysterio vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE United States Championship is officially “a go” for Sunday night’s WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view.
WWE sources confirmed to F4WOnline.com on Saturday morning that Mysterio is in good enough shape to work the U.S. title match as scheduled against Joe this Sunday evening.
As seen on Tuesday night’s SmackDown Live, Mysterio was pulled from his advertised match against Andrade on the show. It was reported, however, that he was seen backstage walking around without a limp despite the ankle injury he suffered in his match with Baron Corbin on Monday night’s RAW.
WrestleMania 35, featuring the Mysterio-Joe match for the U.S. Championship, goes down from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Sunday April 7th. The show will air live on pay-per-view, as well as on the WWE Network.
