Backstage Update on Christian's In-Ring Future

christianThe feeling backstage in WWE is that Christian's career as an in-ring performer will be scaled back this year, due to his injury status and latest concussion.

Prior to his latest injury, when talk began of scaling back Christian's in-ring presence in WWE, there were people who want to hire Christian as an agent/producer when his wrestling contract expires.

Update on Why Rey Mysterio's WWE Contract Has Been Renewed

In an update on Rey Mysterio's contract status, it's being said his deal has been renewed for another year, carrying him up through May 2015.

Mysterio's contract with WWE actually expired a few weeks ago, but Rey received word that Vince McMahon decided to renew him for another year, even though there was no renewal option in Mysterio's contract. WWE contracts are allowed, however, to be frozen during injury time, and Vince reportedly feels Mysterio missed so much time due to injury during his last contract period that he owes WWE more time.

Mysterio reportedly has a very high downside guarantee in his contract so he will make good money regardless of whether or not he is used much on TV.
