WWE news: Is Rey Mysterio on his way back to the WWE?
Former WWE superstar Rey Mysterio has been very busy since leaving WWE officially earlier this year. It was rumored that the Lucha veteran was not able to truly work the WWE schedule without getting hurt.
WWE is known to have one of the most grueling schedules in all of pro-wrestling and entertainment itself. Rey was one of the top Hispanic stars for WWE in his time. Barring Eddie Guerrero, one could say he was the most admired Hispanic star for WWE. WWE knew this and wanted to help build up other stars to get on the same level as Rey or at least get close, but they still have a long way to go to do that.
While many believe Kalisto is the second coming of Rey Mysterio, he is not used nearly as much in singles as Rey was most of his career. This could be helpful for Rey, who is rumored to have an interest in rejoining WWE once again.
According to reports, Rey Mysterio has yet to sign a contract with Lucha Underground or AAA Wrestling. With the future of Lucha Underground still up in the air, Rey was said to have put out feelers regarding a return to WWE. Mysterio stated in recent interviews that he left WWE on good terms and hoped to one day return to the company.
Mysterio seemingly had nothing but nice things to say when asked about the WWE. It is thought that Rey is being so positive due to him trying to do damage control so that he could look good in the eyes of WWE management if he ever did talk to them about a return.
WWE on their part is not too keen on the idea of Rey Mysterio returning to the company though they might end up bringing him back due to the lack of top Hispanic stars. Even if they do it very well might be a short-term deal to see how it works out.
Rey could very well work Mexican Tours or do some small part-time stuff with WWE like many legends have done over the years. Also having him in the roster could also shower some attention to the younger Hispanic stars, and it is here where he could be essential to the WWE. Whether this comes to fruition we may not know, till then keep watching this space for more.
