Rey Mysterio’s return lit a fire under WWE officials because they realized his dynamic with the WWE Universe remains strong. As a result, the two sides have been discussing a long-term deal to bring Mysterio back to the company for more than a couple one-off appearances or matches at major events like the Greatest Royal Rumble back in April.

The WWE Universe is particularly excited about his involvement in WWE 2K19 since a handful of former WWE Superstars have returned to the company through promoting the video game. Apparently, Mysterio is the latest to join that club because DirtySheets has reported that Rey and WWE officials have agreed and signed a new two-year deal.
Almost two weeks ago, the company was in San Diego for an edition of Raw and the two parties negotiated in person and were able to finalize his new contract. Mysterio’s new contract is said to begin at the start of August, so it’s only a matter of time before he gets back on WWE programming to begin a major rivalry for Summerslam later next month.
It turns out “The Master of the 619” may not have had his last great moment with WWE:
As of this writing, Rey Mysterio is penciled in for a huge return to SmackDown Live. On paper, there are a handful of great things for him to do at Summerslam. A lot of people would be ecstatic to see Mysterio vs. Styles for the WWE Championship in Brooklyn, but that’s just one of the options for him at the biggest party of the summer. There’s also no reason to rush since Mysterio is signed with the company for at least the next two years.
