Rey Mysterio Returning to WWE?

Could WWE bring back one of their most popular superstars? Rey Mysterio’s contract with Lucha Underground expires in September, after that he will be looking for a new company to work for.

Both WWE and Global Force Wrestling have expressed interest in him. So, in all likelihood, we will be seeing Mysterio debut for one of these companies in the near future. Unfortunately for WWE fans, Mysterio doesn’t appear to be interested in making his return to the company.

In a recent Instagram post, Mysterio is pictured with Karen Jarrett(Wife of Global Force Wrestling’s Founder Jeff Jarrett). This could mean Mysterio has leaning towards going to Global Force Wrestling. If this is true then Mysterio won’t be back in WWE in the near future.


Personally, this is a disappointing development. Seeing Mysterio return to WWE would have injected new life into the entire locker room. Mysterio could have really livened up the cruiserweight division or even the main event scene.

Of course there is always the possibility that Mysterio could get lost in the shuffle with WWE which is probably the reason why he is leaning towards Global Force Wrestling. Mysterio is still at a point in his career where he can carry the load as the guy and wants to be featured that way.

I think Mysterio would be a great addition to a company that really needs big names on the roster. The addition of Mysterio gives Global Force Wrestling a veteran who can still perform very well in the ring. Mysterio also will help attract more of an audience.

However, it is very possible between now and September that Mysterio could change his mind about who he wants to work for. Until then, we will all just have to wait until later this year to find out.
