Nevertheless, the belief is that Mysterio is pursuing a deal with WWE that would allow him to work on a part-time schedule with the promotion.

What’s next?

One ought to note that Rey Mysterio is currently scheduled to perform at NJPW’s marquee G-1 Special show at the Cow Palace which takes place on July 7th.


Besides, he is also set to compete at AAA’s TripleMania XXVI event on August 25th, as well as “All In” with the latter event taking place at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois on September 1st.

The vast majority of professional wrestling experts note that despite Mysterio's matches still being highly-competitive; given the wear-and-tear he’s accumulated during his lengthy career, the former WWE Champion is unlikely to work a full time schedule should he sign with WWE.
