WWE announces Rey Mysterio retirement ceremony for next week’s Raw

WWE is advertising a ‘retirement ceremony’ for Rey Mysterio on next week’s Raw.

The Master of the 619 has enjoyed an illustrious and influential career since his in-ring debut in Mexico at just 14 years old back in 1989.

While there would be no surprise to find out Mysterio is looking to wind down, thankfully the legendary luchador doesn’t seem to actually be hanging up his boots just yet.

Despite the announcement for Raw, it appears to just be part of WWE’s storylines as Rey’s current rival Seth Rollins will deliver the ‘retirement’ address.

Earlier this month, the Monday Night Messiah took out Mysterio following a tag team match, brutally attacking his eye and leaving him wailing in pain.

It’s clear the teased retirement plans are actually in place to further their feud – but it’s also a reminder that the iconic performer is still nearing the end of his long career.

There have been reports that Mysterio’s contract expires later this year and he’s yet to sign a new deal.

However, he has also expressed his desire to share the ring with his son Dominick as either tag team partners or opponents, so that suggests he’s not done.

He previously told Sportskeeda: ‘I most definitely would love to share the ring properly with him in a Tag Team Match or a 3 vs 3, but I definitely would love to potentially share the ring with him one day.

‘I definitely would love to potentially share the ring with him one day. I think, after that happens, I can retire peacefully.’

Meanwhile, he has also discussed what his son needs to do to make a name for himself in the industry.

In October last year, he told Metro.co.uk: ‘It’s very important. Any time that he feels like he needs to compare his work to mine – that’s one of the first words of advice that I gave him.

‘He needs to create his own legacy, he doesn’t need to try and imitate mine. He understands that.’

Snapchat tests TikTok-style navigation for exploring public content

Published

on

Snapchat could be gearing up to more directly challenge TikTok. The company confirmed it’s testing a new experience that allows users to move through Snapchat’s public content with a vertical swiping motion — a gesture that’s been popularized by TikTok,  where it allows users to advance between videos. Snapchat says the feature is one of its experiments in exploring different, immersive visual formats for community content.

The test is centered around content that is distributed freely to Snapchat Discover, not your companions’ private Stories. But since Stories can have various parts, clients will at present tap to progress through the Story, as in the past. However, in the new analysis, an even swiping movement — either to one side or right — will leave the experience, rather than moving you between Stories, as in the past.

For any individual who invests a lot of their energy in TikTok, the vertical swipe currently feels like a progressively regular approach to travel through recordings. Also, it’s practically bewildering to come back to Snapchat or different applications where the level swipe is utilized.

This test was first spotted by online networking consultant Matt Navarra, citing a post from Twitter client @artb2668. One photograph being shared shows the spring up in the application which discloses how to explore the new experience, while a video gives you a thought for the vibe.
