According to the Pro Wrestling Insider, Rey Mysterio will be headed back to the WWE very soon after finishing up some contractual obligations with Lucha Expo and the “All In” event on September 1st.
Author’s Take: I’ve been a long time Mysterio fan and even had the honor of meeting him on a couple of occasions. We even share the same hometown. I hated the way WWE and him parted ways in 2014 so I’m happy and relieved he’ll get another run with the company and hopefully get a proper send-off tour when he decides to hang ’em up for good.
If WWE is looking for a guy that could possibly elevate 205 Live, I think Rey would be the perfect guy to do it. I think guys like Lio Rush, Cedric Alexander, Jack Gallagher, Kalisto, Akira Tozawa would have some fantastic matches with Rey and could maybe just maybe be the boost that 205 Live needs to get more eyes on the division. Only time will tell how he’s utilized once he returns.
