Rey Mysterio Rejected AEW

Rey Mysterio had reportedly rejected a huge offer from AEW before signing a new one contract with WWE. The news is coming from Dave Meltzer who says AEW was keen signing the Lucha Legend, but he did not take the offer.

They did sign Rey and Rey could have gone to AEW and they know that know Rey got a huge offer to go to AEW [and he] stayed. That’s a feather in the cap too. Rey could have walked in AEW in the middle of this program[between him and Seth Rollins]. He wasn’t gonna do it because he’s Rey and he told them he wouldn’t and no matter what he wouldn’t when legally he could have.
