WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio has been in the news recently for several reasons. It was reported earlier that Rey Mysterio was working with WWE without a contract as his previous deal has expired. Finally, he signed a new three-year deal with WWE last month.
Earlier this year at WWE SummerSlam, Rey Mysterio's son Dominik finally made his in-ring debut in a match against Seth Rollins. In his few matches, the youngster has impressed a lot of people. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon also likes him and is on board with his push.
Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that All Elite Wrestling (AEW) offered Rey Mysterio a big-money contract, but he turned it down.
“They did sign Rey and Rey could have gone to AEW and they know that know Rey got a huge offer to go to AEW [and he] stayed"
“That’s a feather in the cap too. I don’t want to say they owe him because they don’t owe anyone anything but Rey had no contract. Rey could have walked in AEW in the middle of this program. He wasn’t gonna do it because he’s Rey and he told them he wouldn’t and no matter what he wouldn’t. But the point is that legally he could have. I know that loyalty to Vince is a one-way street – you have to be loyal to him and he doesn’t have to be loyal to you but there is something to that right now but he’ll probably forget it at some point too, down the line. Usually, it’s sooner than later.” (h/t WrestlingNews.co)
