Post-WrestleMania Feud Planned for Del Rio, NXT Talent Released, Rey Mysterio’s WWE Future
Apr 2, 2014 - by Marc Middleton
- Rey Mysterio’s WWE contract expires later this month and while there hasn’t been a new deal signed yet, it’s expected. Word is that they’re looking at a deal where Rey would wrestle limited dates and spend more time as a brand ambassador for Latin America, which is really what he’s been doing lately anyway.
– WWE NXT talent Cole Andrews, whose real name is Stephen Good, has reportedly been released from his contract. He was an offensive lineman from the University of Oklahoma. For what it’s worth, he hasn’t been active on social media since late February.
– The reason Alberto Del Rio pinned Big E clean a second time in non-title matches is because WWE officials are planning on having the two feud for the Intercontinental Title after WrestleMania XXX. A match is currently scheduled for Extreme Rules in May.
