Further Update on Rey Mysterio & WWE's Ongoing Negotiations


-- Mysterio and WWE have had multiple rounds of negotiations and the story goes that he asked Vince McMahon for a raise but was turned down with Vince referencing the current financial climate of the COVID-19 pandemic prompting the company to make considerable cuts across the business. However, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Mysterio reportedly didn’t buy that reasoning given that WWE is set to report record profits in 2020 on the strength of their TV deals. He’s probably a big enough star that WWE would concede and give him a raise, however, the stipulation of the eye match is a good way to write him out of storylines if the two sides don’t agree to a new contract.
