Update On Rey Mysterio’s WWE Status Following His Return At Last Night’s Royal Rumble

At last night’s Royal Rumble PPV, Rey Mysterio made his return to the company coming out in the number 27 spot during the match.

PWInsider is reporting that the deal between Mysterio and WWE was put together within the last week and that it was kept secret from everyone within the company. The report also states that as of right now the deal was just a one off, and that he has not signed a new deal with WWE.

On today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer also discussed Rey Mysterio’s return, stating that while he has a lot of other non WWE obligations, that he could possibly work more dates with the company in the future. Meltzer added that Mysterio “would never work a full time schedule” if he did sign a deal to return with the company.
