• RAW Wrestler Not Leaving WWE
RAW Superstar Rey Mysterio’s contract with WWE recently ended and he worked with the company on a verbal deal.
He’s been off TV since losing his eye at The Horror Show At Extreme Rules. His son, Dominik, is set to face Seth Rollins at SummerSlam.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Mysterio is staying with WWE and Dominik will be a part of the new deal as well.
“I can’t confirm pen to paper, but Rey Mysterio is staying, as was always the betting line outcome of this, but it’s as close to official without confirmation of it being official, and obviously Dominik is a big part of that deal.
AEW made an offer that equaled the WWE’s per-match offer, but the WWE offer was higher because it was for more dates. We don’t have a time frame past this new deal would be considerably longer than the previous (18 months) deal but not the five-years or longer deals that WWE has tried to get everyone on.”
