• Update On Rey Mysterio’s WWE Status After Joining Another Wrestling Promotion
As we noted before, former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio has joined a fan-funded wrestling company named Aro Lucha, who first season will be taped in Nashville in the coming months.
Below is what Mysterio had to say about this:
“I think what we are doing with Aro Lucha being fan-owned is revolutionary. We are giving the fans something they have never had before, a voice and a chance to get in on the action.”
Despite this, Mysterio is still in talks with WWE, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer. Below is what Meltzer said:
“A lot of people look at that and go, ‘oh he’s not going to WWE.’ He may not. He is absolutely in talks with them right now. The Aro Lucha thing does not change that story.”
We’ll keep you updated regarding Mysterio’s status.
