After recently coming to terms on a new agreement, WWE expects Rey Mysterio to be back on television soon. Mysterio had been attempting to get out of his WWE contract, but WWE wanted to extend his deal since he missed a significant amount of the last year due to injuries. With WWE short on top draws in the Hispanic market, it’s said that Vince McMahon had to bend a bit to Mysterio’s requests.
As of this week, Mysterio’s plans to wrestle for AAA and Lucha Underground have been put on hold.
Aside from returning to the ring, WWE plans to utilize Mysterio outside of the ring, using him for promotional work and as an ambassador of the company
Through all the ups and down, Mysterio has been with since 2002, longer than most of the locker room. It’s unlikely that any other wrestling promotions could give him the money and worldwide exposure that WWE can, which was one of the deciding factors that led him to remain with the company.
