Regarding Rey Mysterio, one person very high up in WWE said he didn’t believe Rey had signed a new deal yet, but that his re-signing was likely inevitable.
The chances of him heading to TNA or anywhere else are realistically about zero, and while he doesn’t have a huge downside he makes a lot of money in merchandise and has a good relationship with the office, particularly the only one who really matters in the end, Vince McMahon.
Friends say that after WCW went down and he saw what happened with Konnan, his plan is to try to put away as much money as possible while he can, meaning WWE is the place to be. He would probably be offered a bigger base salary to go to TNA, but the reality is that they have plans to push him very hard upon his return and with PPV and merchandise bonuses he’ll be sitting pretty.
