Rey Mysterio is currently negotiating with WWE and Global Force Wrestling, according to Sports Illustrated.
Mysterio, who is 42 years old, is currently seen on El Rey’s Lucha Underground. He is signed through the end of the third season, which is set to air in September, and would then be free to work with any wrestling company after his 90-day non-compete clause expires.
There is strong incentive for both companies to make Mysterio an offer he cannot refuse. WWE is still searching for a big Latino star after failing to replace Mysterio in the first place. According to Sports Illustrated, Global Force Wrestling is very motivated to move away from Alberto El Patron and generate some positive headlines by inking the legendary Mysterio.
Mysterio parted ways with WWE in February 2015 but has always been open to the idea of returning. His son, Dominick, is looking to follow in his father’s footsteps so Mysterio could opt to return to WWE in hopes that it helps his son’s future.
The possibility also looms that Lucha Underground will swoop in with an offer to retain Mysterio, but El Rey has yet to announce a fourth season for the show.
