The WWE has resorted to practically anything, including having some of their legendary stars appear in cartoons. Now, it appears another iconic figure will be having his turn in an animated series.

Rey Mysterio, one of the beloved wrestlers of the WWE, will be staring in a new Cartoon Network Latin America series titled “Rey Mysterio vs. The Darkness (La Oscuridad).”

The series will reportedly be produced by Mexican Studio ¡Viva Calavera! in conjunction with Mysterio and will be comprised of 10 episodes.

“Rey Mysterio vs. The Darkness” is set to premiere in Latin America in 2022.

"We are very excited to be able to share with Cartoon Network and Rey Mysterio fans more details and color of this incredible production made in Mexico. We are confident that you will enjoy the surprises we have in store and that the show will meet all your expectations," Jaime Jiménez Rión, Vice President of Content and Original Production, WarnerMedia Kids & Family, Latin America, stated.

It will be an action-comedy series that will tell the story of a wrestling fan, named Oscar, who ends teaming up with the former WWE champion. They set off to face supernatural beings and fight forces of evil - villains from the world of wrestling and characters from Mexican traditions and the world of fantasy.

But it appears the main adversary in the series will be an evil fighter named “Uroboros.” Hence, it will be up to Oscar and Mysterio to join hands as they protect the city from the evil intentions of Uroboros.

In the actual WWE scene, Mysterio recently replaced Jeff Hardy at a six-man tag team match and teamed up with Drew McIntyre and Xavier Woods. They took on WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Usos at a recent live event.

Hardy disappeared from ringside in a live event a day prior after tagging out of the match. The daredevil wrestler would later be released by the promotion and later offered to extend help in the form of rehab. Much of this was covered in a previous report here on Latin Times.
