Rey Mysterio Reportedly Negotiating with WWE & GFW

Quote:
There is a major name on the free agent market in professional wrestling, and Sports Illustrated has learned that WWE and GFW/Impact are negotiating with Rey Mysterio.

Mysterio, 42, is currently seen on El Rey’s Lucha Underground. He is signed through the end of the third season, which is set to air in September, and would then be free to work with any company after his 90-day non-compete clause expires.

There is strong incentive for both companies to make Mysterio an offer he cannot refuse. WWE needs a big Latino star, as well as a great ambassador to Latin America. GFW/Impact is very motivated to move away from Alberto El Patron and generate some positive headlines by inking the legendary Mysterio.

WWE also holds an edge with its state-of-the-art Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. Mysterio’s son, Dominick, is pursuing a career in pro wrestling, and could benefit from the opportunity to train at WWE’s PC.

The possibility also looms that Lucha Underground will swoop in with an offer to retain Mysterio, yet El Rey has yet to announce a fourth season for the show.

Sports Illustrated is reporting that Rey Mysterio is negotiating with both Global Force Wrestling and WWE.

If I was the 42-year-old Lucha legend I might go for the Global Force schedule. Given how he left WWE a few years ago I'm not sure how much they are willing to bend over for Rey Rey. Not to mention GFW have a relationship with both AAA and Crash Lucha, I think that just at this point it makes the most sense. The article points out that he may decide to go with the WWE again not only for the money but to help get his son Dominic a Performance Center .tryout.

Mysterio currently appears on Lucha Underground but as soon as the third season finishes airing on El Rey he will be free and clear. There is speculation whether a fourth season is even in the works. So you have to wonder where Mysterio will be this fall?

I can't see him having a great run if WWE were to bring him back.

Re: Rey Mysterio Reportedly Negotiating with WWE & GFW

well he wont get a great run if he blows his knee out after a week.

thats the problem with rey, its not his value, its the high risk of him picking up injury again, I can see why it got frustrating for wwe last time.

Re: Rey Mysterio Reportedly Negotiating with WWE & GFW

if he's coming back for one final run and then retire, I want him back. He's one of the true baby face of this industry

Re: Rey Mysterio Reportedly Negotiating with WWE & GFW

It's hilarious that the company that tried to replace him with Alberto Del Rio and the company that made Alberto their FOTC only to have to suspend the guy are now fighting over him, and in 2017 as well.

I've no problem if he returns to the company. I'd like to see him ending his career in WWE.

Re: Rey Mysterio Reportedly Negotiating with WWE & GFW

Unless he can get a reduced schedule in WWE, I think he'd be a better fit for a company like GFW where he will definitely have lighter workload.

The problem with Rey has always been the injuries and if he has to go do that full time WWE schedule again, he's just going to break down.

Return back to WWE and feud with Neville. Should RVD return then pair him and Rey back up and give them one more tag run.

Re: Rey Mysterio Reportedly Negotiating with WWE & GFW

I thought Rey was older than 42.

Anyway I'm sure WWE would love to hire him again just to sell his masks.

Re: Rey Mysterio Reportedly Negotiating with WWE & GFW

I think if Rey can make a stop in GFW even for a year and then go on to retire in WWE would be fine.

GFW? It's a shithole.

He needs to come to WWE and help out where he's needed most: The Cruiserweight Division.
