Source: PWInsider EliteAs noted in an interview yesterday, Rey Mysterio said he plans on sticking around with WWE and re-signing a new deal when his current contract expires soon. We also noted this morning that Rey has been added to WWE Studios' Flinstones movie that comes out in time for WrestleMania 31 next year.
A source reported to PWinsider on Tuesday morning before Rey's interview came out that at least in WWE's eyes, Rey was sticking around for at least another year because of the addition to the Flinstones movie.
Word last month was that WWE was planning on downplaying Rey on TV until he re-signed or informed them that he was leaving. A new deal is expected to be signed soon and Rey will be staying with WWE.
