How mysterious. We are coming up on Survivor Series, which is quite the big show for a log of people. The NXT superstars are getting their big chance to show up on the biggest stage they have ever had and it could be the night that makes their careers. Other than that there are a few matches with just the main roster talent, including a match that has not been seen in over fifteen years with Rey Mysterio facing Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship. It has been a long time in the making, but it might be the last time ever for another reason.
According to Ringsidenews.com, Mysterio signed a two year deal with WWE in September 2018. However, there was a clause in the deal that allowed him to get out of the deal after eighteen months, which would be coming up right before WrestleMania 36 in April. At the moment, there is no indication that Mysterio is interested in leaving WWE, though he did work All In last year, which was produced by several of the same people who founded AEW. Mysterio has said that his time in the ring is coming to an end.
Mysterio has been busy of late. Check out how we got to his match with Lesnar:
Mysterio has wrestled in the United States for the better part of twenty five years, beginning in ECW. He moved on to WCW and became the centerpiece of the Cruiserweight division, which became one of WCW’s signature draws. Mysterio would debut in WWE in 2002 and stay with the company until 2014, winning three World Titles and the 2006 Royal Rumble in the process. He would wrestle in Lucha Underground, New Japan and AAA before returning to WWE in 2018.
Mysterio has been a big deal for a long time. Check out some of his greatest moments:
Opinion: I’m not sure if Mysterio is going to be leaving the company anytime soon but it would be a bit of a surprise. He has a long resume around the world and could go wherever he wanted to finish up his career. At the same time though, his son Dominick is attempting to get into WWE and it would make things easier if Mysterio himself was still around. There is a big market for a star like Mysterio and it would make sense for him to stay in WWE, though that may not be what he does.
Do you think Mysterio will stay in WWE? Where should he go? Let us know in the comments below.
