- Former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio was in the news Saturday evening and that news had to do with Mysterio joining the 'Aro Lucha' wrestling promotion as both an in-ring performer and a co-owner. According to Dave Meltzer on the latest installment of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Mysterio's business venture has not interfered in his talks with WWE.
"He’s still in negotiations with WWE. I can tell you that factually right now. He’s in negotiations with WWE." Meltzer explained. "He will be working Aro Lucha. I think he’s pretty much committed to working Aro Lucha tapings. He may stay with them, he may end up with ownership. He’s not an owner of the company right now. The idea of this, a lot of people look at this and go, ‘Oh he’s not going to WWE.’ He may not, but he’s absolutely in talks with them right now. Whatever the story is that broke today, that does not change that story.”
