Rey Mysterio Headed Back to WWE?

(Rey Mysterio)

Rey Mysterio’s current contract with Lucha Underground is reportedly up after season three, and both WWE and GFW are actively pursuing him to join or in WWE’s case return when he becomes a free agent, according to SI.com’s Justin Barrasso.

Mysterio was of course up until his departure on February 26, 2015, the WWE’s biggest drawing name in the Mexican market, an area which WWE has been trying to revitalize since without much success. In addition, Barrasso notes that a return to WWE for Mysterio could benefit Dominic his Son who is seeking to break into the industry and with the company’s development programs at the WWE Performance Center, it could be hugely beneficial to his career in the ring.

On the other hand, GFW’s lighter schedule might sway Mysterio who will be 43 in December and with all the latest drama with Alberto El Patron the company may seek to find a new star to appear to their Latino market.

As for Lucha Underground, a fourth season has yet to be announced so it’s looking unlikely at this stage that Mysterio will stick around. If he does leave LU which will be after season three ends in September he will have a 90 day no compete clause which realistically means we probably wouldn’t see Mysterio back on our screens until early 2018.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
