Rey Mysterio linked with WWE exit rumours ahead of Brock Lesnar clash at Survivor Series
Rey Mysterio may not beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series because he could leave WWE before WrestleMania 36.
According to PWInsider, Mysterio signed a lucrative deal with Vince McMahon’s promotion when he returned in September 2018 which included a clause that would allow him to opt out after 18 months if he isn’t happy with the arrangement.
That means The Master of the 619 will be able to trigger that clause by March next year just a month before WrestleMania which means that his future is still not completely clear.
According to WhatCulture, a departure is not completely out of the question ahead of Mania, which will take place on April 5 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
However, the three-time world champion is receiving some really good booking from management and is currently part of the main-event scene.
Mysterio was placed in a partnership with UFC legend Cain Velasquez, who crossed over from Dana White’s promotion in October.
The former World Heavyweight Champion is also feuding with WWE Champion Lesnar, whom he will face at Survivor Series.
There also seems to be a long-term plan involving the ex-WWE Champion’s son Dominick, who is pursuing a career as a professional wrestler.
The current arrangement should convince Mysterio to remain with the wrestling giants.
But if he hasn’t offered any guarantees about his future then he won’t be winning the WWE Championship as he will then be needed for WrestleMania.
However, even if the 44-year-old decides to leave then WWE could extend his stay by at least one more month so that he can perform in the Show of Shows.
Plus, the company’s Chairman and CEO McMahon is very reluctant to let top talent leave as he could then lose them to rival promotion AEW.
Mysterio is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time that holds immense respect as he managed to put together an impressive career despite his small stature.
The famous luchador holds victories over some of the greatest legends like Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrero, Batista and more.
