CM Punk/Matt Hardy Note, More on Rey Mysterio’s Suspension

Nick Paglino

Matt Hardy has noted on his Twitter page that he was announced the winner of his bout against CM Punk on Smackdown last night. Hardy won via disqualification.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that in total, Rey Mysterio’s current WWE suspension is going to cost him about $100,000. Mysterio will be missing four weeks of house show events and most likely 2 PPV events as WWE would have little to no time at all to build any kind of story line for him if they were going to book him to wrestle at their "Hell in a Cell" PPV.

As is the case with all Wellness Policy violations, Rey Mysterio is not collecting his downside guarantee during his suspension and is not collecting merchandise revenue which is always very high for Rey as he is one of the company’s best sellers. It’s being reported that Rey makes somewhere in the area of $1.5 million dollars a year working for WWE.
