Rey Mysterio’s Contract Reportedly Renewed For Another Year
Posted by Larry Csonka on 05.29.2014
For an interesting reason…
- Rey Mysterio's WWE contract was reportedly set to expire last week. Vince McMahon renewed the deal for one year. This is due to the fact that WWE contracts are allowed to be frozen in the event of injury. Since Mysterio has missed so much time during the course of his deal due to injuries, the WWE felt that Mysterio owed them time and he was renewed through May of 2015.
Mysterio reportedly has a healthy downside guarantee, but how WWE will use him at this time is unknown. There is concern over Mysterio's ability to hold up, so they may not want to invest heavily in him. Mysterio is currently out of action with a hand injury.
