WrestleZone has learned exclusively that Rey Mysterio’s contract with WWE does not expire until April, 2012, with a two year option clause attached to the agreement. According to a key WWE insider, Mysterio is "50/50" as a long term player continuing on in WWE.

"(WWE Chairman) Vince (McMahon) thinks Rey is staying, but he doesn’t know that for sure," our key WWE insider informed us this morning, "Vince is hopeful of Rey continuing to represent WWE to the Latino community, but Rey is claiming severe burnout and people close to him are sure he’s going to either retire or try to do something else after his contract expires."
