Negotiations between WWE and Rey Mysterio are said to be close to done and Mysterio could finally get his release soon, according to PWI.
Rey has been working on putting together signing appearances and promoters are waiting to get the green light to make the announcements public. The expectation is that once Rey is free and clear from WWE that he will sign with Lucha Underground.
There were rumors in WWE that Rey had his release papers in hand but he did not sign it because there were issues from his side that he wanted worked out. Presumably that would have something to do with WWE’s no-compete clause.
