As noted a couple of weeks ago, Rey Mysterio recently met with Vince McMahon backstage at a recent Raw show. It looks like Rey Mysterio has had a change of heart and will be staying with WWE and will resign with them before his contract expires in May. Dr. Lucha Steve Sims said on the Figure Four Daily audio show that WWE was willing to spend more money to keep him because they have such a large hispanic audience.
A lot of the stuff that Mysterio will be doing will be outside of the ring and will do a lot of things for the company as an ambassador. In other words, he’ll have a limited in ring schedule. Rey has a lot of friends in the company and despite his differences with Vince McMahon he realized that this is the best situation for him economically and what was offered to him was hard to turn down.
This essentially kills off any possibility of Rey signing with Lucha Underground or AAA in Mexico.
