Shortly after announcing Rey Mysterio’s match for the upcoming SmackDown 1000 episode, WWE has announced him for several upcoming events as well.
In a statement released on WWE.com, Officials confirmed that Mysterio is back on ‘full-time basis’ and he will be competing regularly for the company.
While the announcement didn’t reveal the length of his new contract, previous reports suggested that the former World Champion has signed a two years deal with the company.
Not only that but the press release also confirmed Rey Mysterio for a number of upcoming events. You can check out a list of events he will be appearing on below:
- Hartford, Conn. – Oct. 20
- Boston, Mass. – Oct. 21
- White Plains, N.Y. – Oct. 22
- Cardiff, Wales – Nov. 3
- Aberdeen, Scotland – Nov. 4
- Birmingham, England – Nov. 5
It’s worth mentioning here that all these events are either dual branded or SmackDown exclusive shows.
Considering this and the fact that the Master of 619 will make his return to WWE programming during SmackDown 1000, it appears that he will become a regular for the Blue Brand in the upcoming days.
Rey Mysterio originally made his return during the Royal Rumble PPV earlier this year and had been negotiating a longer run with WWE Officials since his appearance at the Greatest Royal Rumble.
