Rey Mysterio Not Yet Officially Signed to WWE

Posted By James Walsh on 04/13/18


As previously reported, Rey Mysterio apparently made an agreement with WWE to work the upcoming Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia later this month. The Wrestling Observer (via WrestlingInc.com) had an update on the ongoing situation between Mysterio and WWE.

As of Thursday (April 12) this week, the former WWE world heavyweight champion had not yet agreed to terms on a new contract with WWE, but both sides are said to still be in negotiations for a deal. Unfortunately, that means that, as of right now, his scheduled appearance at the Greatest Royal Rumble event is only scheduled as a “one-shot deal.”

The report notes that the expectation is Mysterio will sign a new contract with WWE later on, but he wouldn’t immediately return to TV in a regular role. Additionally, he’s still committed to work future dates for Arolucha and NJPW throughout the summer.
