Former 3 time World Champion Rey Mysterio was moved to WWE’s Alumni section and WWE later issued a statement regarding Mysterio’s WWE status:
“Rey Mysterio is no longer under contract with WWE.”
It was first reported that Rey negotiated for his release but actually his contract expired and was not renewed. With Rey now being a free agent, he’s expected to work for a few other wrestling promotions, mainly Lucha Underground & AAA.
Mysterio will likely make his anticipated return to Mexico’s AAA promotion on March 15th, on their Rey de Reyes show. There’s a press conference scheduled to take place this week and Rey Mysterio’s return to AAA could be announced over there.
Mysterio would likely be charging big money for making appearances for various Indy promotions as he’s a legend in this business now.
