Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterWe noted before that Rey Mysterio, who is dealing with a hand injury, recently had his WWE contract renewed by Vince McMahon for one more year, even though there was no option period for one year in Rey's contract. This was done because WWE contracts can be frozen in the event of an injury.
Apparently there is more to the situation than Rey's deal simply being renewed for another year and there's a potential legal situation that has yet to play out. Rey was actually looking at leaving when his contract expired a month ago when Vince renewed it for another year.
Rey is still listed on WWE's injury list and there's been no talk about when he might be back.
