Rey Mysterio’s signing with WWE means that he can no longer work for any independent wrestling companies going forward. However, he is still listed as part owner of the Aro Lucha promotion. It looks like he will retain his shares of the company while working for WWE.
Aro Lucha CEO Jason Brown said the following on the company WeFunder page in regards to Mysterio signing with WWE:
“Regarding Rey, he will always be an owner in Aro Lucha and a stockholder. In our discussions with Rey, he has always indicated his desire to finish his career with the WWE but when we started Aro Lucha with him there was no clear timing on that initiative. Our discussions with Rey have always been a two way street, with the understanding that we respect his desires to finish his career with the WWE and that he has a desire to see Aro Lucha grow and succeed. Aro Lucha is a place that he has ownership in, and can come back to. We are contracted with Rey as talent through December of 2018 and there are multiple opportunities for us to work with him in the future.”
The company filmed a TV pilot last December but it’s been a long time since they’ve held a show. According to their WeFunder page, they raised $129,216 from 317 investors.
