Aro Lucha CEO Jason Brown recently spoke with Fightful and clarified Rey Mysterio’s status with the promotion, here is what he had to say… 

“We always had open discussions with Rey and he informed us that he wanted to join Aro Lucha and see it succeed, but that he always wanted to end his career at the WWE. At the time of our initial conversations, there was no discussions with the WWE or a timeline, so we all thought it could be 2 or 3 years before he decided to go back. Rey continues to hold stock in the company and we are a place that he can return to and help outside of WWE. We want what is best for Rey and the opportunity for him to return happened a lot faster than any of us predicted, including Rey. Our relationship with Rey is good and we will continue to grow the brand while he is away. We are different than the WWE and there are special reasons why Rey found Aro Lucha interesting. He said something in the WeFunder video, something to effect that he loved Aro Lucha because it was 100% lucha and for the lucha fans, that’s what makes us different and unique.”
