WWE star Rey Mysterio, who hasn't wrestled since February, spoke with about his latest injury. You can read the full article at Among the highlights:

His latest injury: "What’s slowed me down in my career are [anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)] tears in my left knee. After the first one in 1997, they started happening one after another. We’ve used everything we could in terms of re-attaching my ACL [with ligaments from] my body. Now, we’ve gone into cadavers to reattach them. That’s what’s slowed me down, my left knee. My right one, knock on wood, is all good. The rest of my body, thank God, is all good."

The possibility of a retirement: "No. I’m 39 years old and I know I’ve been doing this for quite some time, over two decades. Retirement is, for me, something that’ll be down the road, but not within the next two or three years. I feel like, with how medicine is evolving, something will be out there soon that can help you heal from arthritis. That might be what helps my longevity and pushes me to keep performing."

Shore's Slant: Mysterio also reveals his left knee is arthritic, meaning it is bone-on-bone and that Dr. James Andrews is using a stem-cell procedure to treat it. My daughter may have something similar done later this month depending on how surgery goes. So yeah, Rey Mysterio has the knee of a 13 year old girl.
