Update: After this report went viral, WrestlingInc has published a story, saying that after talking to their sources they can confirm that Mysterio is still a free agent and as of this writing he is still slated to appear at ALL In.
If you’ve been anticipating the return of Rey Mysterio to the WWE, it seems that we have some good news for you.
The Wrestling Standard broke the story today that Rey Mysterio has signed a new two-year deal, which will begin on August 1st. Mysterio could, possibly, make his first appearance as early as the post-Summerslam Smackdown Live in Brooklyn.
Apparently, Mysterio finalized the deal back at the June 25th Raw taping, without the involvement of Vince McMahon. The Wrestling Standard stated that this deal is completely separate from the deal he inked earlier in the year that put him in the upcoming WWE 2K19 as a pre-order bonus character.
