WWE Executive Reveals Major Marketing Plan for SummerSlam
WWE’s Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer, Michelle Wilson, recently spoke with Multichannel News, and the following are some highlights:
Big Update on Mysterio Possibly Appearing at AAA This Weekend
According to Steve Sims, Lucha Report for F4WOnline.com, Rey Mysterio has been invited to appear as a guest at this Sunday’s AAA TripleMania XXII event, at which Alberto Del Rio will be making his AAA return. Sims is reporting Mysterio will likely accept the invitation and make an appearance at the big event in Mexico.
Furthermore, in a video interview released this week, former WWE Spanish announcer Hugo Savinovich claims Mysterio will be joining AAA when he resolves his current contract dispute with WWE.
For those unaware of Mysterio’s current WWE situation, it’s being said he’s been looking to leave the company for quite sometime, after he felt the company “blindsided” him with a contract renewal.
Mysterio’s WWE contract was set to expire in late April of this year, but Vince McMahon decided to renew it for another year, claiming there is a clause in talent contracts which allows management to add contract time due to injury. Mysterio missed 19 months of ring time due to 2 major knee injuries/surgeries, and WWE feels he owes them the time missed.
