Nick Paglino

After last night’s AAA Triplemania XXII event in Mexico City, a pre-recorded video aired featuring Rey Mysterio wearing a sombrero, congratulating AAA on twenty-two years of success and telling fans that he would see them soon. A message was then shown saying “#FreeRey”.

Footage of his video message has surfaced online, and can be seen below:

Paglino: The #FreeRey video is creating a controversial buzz in the wrestling world, as WWE is reportedly not happy at all with Mysterio working with AAA, in addition to recently released WWE star Alberto Del Rio.

AAA could potentially face litigation from WWE since Mysterio is still under contract with WWE. F4WOnline.com is reporting AAA is under the impression they could get around any legal issues because the video was only shown to the live crowd, but as seen in the video it was clearly included in the iPPV.
