PWInsider reports that as of last night’s Stomping Ground PPV, the word backstage in WWE is that Rey Mysterio should be back in early July. WWE is reportedly targeting his return for the RAW taping on July 8 in Newark, New Jersey, pending medical clearance. He suffered a separated shoulder last month during a match with Samoa Joe at Money in the Bank, forcing him to give up the United States title. He recently appeared at a live event in his hometown of San Diego.

In the meanwhile, Mysterio has launched a new campaign called Fight4Austism, which benefits children with autism.

Here is a press release:
