Rey Mysterio Reportedly Still Hasn't Signed; WWE Trying to Keep Kairi Sane Around


-- On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Rey Mysterio’s contract situation with WWE was discussed. It was noted that the “odds are strong” that Mysterio will re-sign with the company but as of this week, he hadn’t officially signed any contract and “to be determined.” The major sticking point continues to be financial as Mysterio wants a raise but in the past, the two sides had also not agreed on the length of the deal. There are also dynamics at play from both sides as Mysterio has the future WWE career of his son Dominik to consider while WWE doesn’t want to see him going to AEW under any circumstances.

--Fightfulselect.com reports that even though Kairi Sane is technically ending her run with WWE, the company is trying to keep her on the payroll in a non-wrestling role, such as a trainer or ambassador likely to prevent Sane from joining a rival promotion. While she is currently done with WWE, a match of hers will supposedly air next week as WWE taped two episodes yesterday. The much talked about "injury angle" has happened so it's possible that could still go down next Monday.
