Big WWE News: Rey Mysterio Not Signing A New Contract?

Jason Powell of is reporting that Rey Mysterio and WWE are still in somewhat of a stalemate regarding contract negotiations. Rey’s deal is set to expire in the Spring of 2009, and up until a few weeks ago it appeared that a new deal would be signed rather quickly. However, due to issues like merchandising and contract length, there appears to be a delay in what would otherwise be an immediate re-signing. WWE wants Rey to sign a 5 year deal with the company, whereas Rey only wants to sign a 3 year deal. More on this story as it unfolds.
