Rey Mysterio says he is open to WWE return
ESPN.com is featuring an interview with Rey Mysterio where he is asked about any interest in possibly making a return to WWE for one last run.
Mysterio, 43, noted he is currently a free agent.
“I’m not locked up to any company. I’m an independent contractor, as we say. could go work wherever I want. That’s the beautiful thing about being on this side of the fence. You don’t have a commitment with only one company. You can go around and pretty much wrestle wherever you want. You can choose when you want your off-days to be. That was one of my main priorities when I left WWE.”
Mysterio noted he’s had no communication with WWE in recent years and was surprised to be included in a list by WWE as possible Royal Rumble surprises in 2018.
“I actually did get a chance to see that post, and I was surprised, because the post is one thing, but there hasn’t been any communication between either side. Again, anything can change. Things happen last minute sometimes, and that’s what makes it exciting for the fans. The fact that they don’t know ahead of time lets you know they’re being surprised. I would definitely love to go back and finish up. Whether it’s one year or whatever the case might be. Whether it’s a farewell. I owe a lot to that company. That company gave me such an amazing opportunity, and I took advantage of every single moment I was with WWE to the fullest. I wouldn’t want to just be remembered as ‘Oh, man, he never re-signed and he never came back.’ I would definitely love to come back and do a last run and say goodbye to my WWE fans. Tell them goodbye in a proper way.”
