The Final 6/12 Smackdown Rating, Another Rey/WWE Update

Nick Paglino

Last week’s Smackdown broadcast (6/12) finished with a final 1.8 broadcast rating.

Although we updated yesterday that Rey Mysterio did NOT in fact ask WWE for his release last week as he simply had the day off to attend a family function, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that there are current issues between Rey and WWE and they are stemming from money related negotiations that are ongoing. It’s being reported that the two sides are in somewhat of a stalemate over money issues relating to either Rey’s current contract or merchandise sales.
