Mysterio staying with WWE? NXT viewership unhappiness Submitted by Aaron Rift on 08/07/2020 at 09:59 AM
- Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com is reporting the following about Rey Mysterio’s WWE status:
“I can’t confirm pen to paper, but Rey Mysterio is staying, as was always the betting line outcome of this, but it’s as close to official without confirmation of it being official, and obviously Dominik is a big part of that deal.”
Meltzer added that AEW matched WWE’s per-match offer but WWE’s offer is for more money due to more dates. Mysterio’s WWE deal is also expected to be “considerably longer” than his previous contract.
- In regards to new writers being added to the NXT brand, Dave Meltzer wrote that “although nobody will say it, there is a lot of unhappiness about losing in the ratings every week.” According to WrestlingNews.co, there is once again talk about bringing some RAW and Smackdown stars to the NXT brand to improve viewership against AEW Dynamite.
