Update: Rey Mysterio Taking Action to Get Out of His WWE Contract?, Backstage News on His Current Status

Nick Paglino

rey mysterioFollowing CM Punk’s WWE departure, but when he was still under contract to WWE, speculation was that the company could do something similar to Punk’s contract that they did with Rey Mysterio’s deal.

As we previously reported, because Rey Mysterio has missed so much time due to injury, WWE automatically re-upped his contract for the amount of ring time he missed.

There is now backstage concern as to whether or not he will return to action for WWE, as he has reportedly stopped cashing his paychecks, which could be a sign that he is trying to get out of his current deal.

Paglino: We haven’t heard any reaction from Mysterio regarding his feelings on WWE extending his contract, but not cashing a paycheck is clearly a sign something is wrong. WZ will continue to provide the latest on this developing story as it becomes available.
