In the past couple of weeks, reports have indicated that Rey Mysterio decided not to exercise the 18-month opt-out on his WWE contract and the three-time world champion will remain with the company until at least September when his deal expires.
Jim Ross said he had heard Mysterio had signed a new deal with WWE on a recent episode of Grilling JR, but Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that The Master Of The 619 has not put pen to paper on a new contract as of yet.
One of the key factors in Rey signing a new deal is reportedly his son Dominick as Mysterio does not want to do anything that would upset WWE in case it adversely affects his son's career. The former United States Champion also has "a very high contract" in the wrestling behemoth because the company did not want Mysterio to wrestle in New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
Whether or not Rey signs a new deal with WWE remains to be seen, but All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes has previously said that he would love to add Mysterio to the young promotion's roster if he becomes available.
