– WWE legend, Rey Mysterio, recently signed a two-year deal with the company this past September, and since, the Internet has been a buzz with speculation around potential return dates. As per the PWInsider, the superstar’s comeback is set to take place during the highly-anticipated SmackDown LIVE 1,000-episode celebration show, taking place from Washington D.C.
Past reports indicated that Rey-Rey originally wanted an 18-month deal; however, WWE was pulling for a two-year contract, and that is what was settled on in the end. The masked superstar was able to place a clause in the contract where he could give notice at 18 months, if he decided he wanted to leave the company at that point in time.
WWE fans marked out earlier this year when Mysterio was a surprise entrant during the 2018 Royal Rumble, and Rey also worked the Greatest Royal Rumble Saudi Arabia event that took place this past April. It’s been said that both Rey and the WWE have been trying to iron out a contract since these appearances.

– Speaking of SD LIVE’s 1,000 episode, not only will Rey Mysterio be there, but expect some former WWE Divas to make an appearance as well. According to PWInsider, the company is advertising locally that fans should expect to see Torrie Wilson at the event, as well as Michelle McCool.
SmackDown LIVE 1,000 is shaping up to be a huge event. Not only will Mysterio be there, the above former female superstars, but the WWE is also promising an Evolution reunion, with Dave Bautista returning, as well as Vickie Guerrero (excuse us!), and Teddy Long, are also slated for the show that night.
SmackDown LIVE 1,000 is set to air on Tuesday October 16th and promises to be an exciting show. Set your PVR now, WNZ fans!
