Of course, Mysterio and WWE had been going back and forth in talks about a new deal. The issue between them was financial as Mysterio wanted a raise while at the time, Vince McMahon didn’t want to give him that as he referenced the budget cuts back in April due to COVID-19.

Dave Meltzer reported in the August 7th edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Mysterio is staying with WWE, but he couldn’t confirm whether Mysterio has put pen to paper just yet.

It was added that AEW made an offer that equaled the WWE’s per-match offer, but the WWE offer was higher because it was for more dates.

Fast forward to this past Friday, Meltzer reported that the belief is Mysterio signed a three-year deal.
