Rey Mysterio Close to Signing With WWE, AEW Also Offered Him a Deal

Rey Mysterio re-signing with WWE is now “as close to official without confirmation of it being official,” according to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Mysterio is staying in WWE, Meltzer says, but there’s no confirmation of him officially signing the contract yet.

The new deal is reportedly considerably longer than Mysterio’s previous 18 month contract, but it’s less than five years.

Mysterio’s son Dominik is a “big part of the deal,” Meltzer added. Dominik will wrestle in his first WWE match at SummerSlam against Seth Rollins.

AEW also made Mysterio a contract offer, Meltzer reported. AEW’s offer matched WWE’s per-match number, but the WWE deal was higher overall because it had more dates.
