During a recent interview with ESPN, former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio was asked about his current status and if he wants to return to WWE.
Below are the highlights:
On his current status and if he’s tied to any wrestling promotion:
“I’m not locked up to any company. I’m an independent contractor, as we say. I could go work wherever I want. That’s the beautiful thing about being on this side of the fence. You don’t have a commitment with only one company.
You can go around and pretty much wrestle wherever you want. You can choose when you want your off-days to be. That was one of my main priorities when I left WWE.”
On if he wants to return to WWE:
“I would definitely love to go back and finish up. Whether it’s one year or whatever the case might be. Whether it’s a farewell. I owe a lot to that company. That company gave me such an amazing opportunity, and I took advantage of every single moment I was with WWE to the fullest.
I wouldn’t want to just be remembered as ‘Oh, man, he never re-signed and he never came back.’ I would definitely love to come back and do a last run and say goodbye to my WWE fans. Tell them goodbye in a proper way. I don’t think I can go back to a full-time schedule.
There’s just no way. I can’t go back to that schedule. It would be common sense for them as well. That was my main motive for stepping away. I wanted to be able to have some free time. I’m still working really hard right now on the independent scene, but I control my schedule.
I might get booked three days — Friday, Saturday, Sunday, come home Monday, and the following weekend I don’t have to work. That right there gives me a peaceful state of mind like you have no idea.”
