Report: Rey Mysterio in Alabama this week as part of ongoing negotiations with WWE

Rey Mysterio was in Birmingham, Alabama undergoing testing with doctors as part of his negotiations with WWE according to a report by PWInsider.com.

This report by Mike Johnson would seem to indicate that negotiations between WWE and Mysterio are getting even more serious since his last appearance in the Royal Rumble.

Mysterio suffered a grade one, partially torn left bicep while making an appearance for Northeast Wrestling in Connecticut earlier this month. The injury is believed to have forced Mysterio to pull out of a planned match against Jushin “Thunder” Liger at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Strong Style Evolved live special that airs this Sunday night on AXS TV.
