As noted, Rey Mysterio has been officially announced as the pre-order bonus character for WWE 2K19 and is reportedly close to signing a new deal that would see him return to the WWE.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the two sides have come close to a deal but Mysterio’s commitments are all that is left to be worked out before he can make his return. The longtime pro wrestling journalist wrote the following:
“While Rey Mysterio has not signed with WWE, the discussions are close enough that they’ve talked about what commitments he has and doesn’t have left,” the report reads. “All-In is obviously a key thing.”
