Veteran WWE star Rey Mysterio could be the latest star to leave the organization, in the wake of CM Punk's recent decision.
The 39-year old's contract is due to expire in just a few months and reports have emerged, courtesy of 'The Wrestling Observer', that there is a possibility that the WWE will not look to re-new the former world champion's deal.
The wrestling publications stated that:
"Usually at this point WWE would be aggressively trying to get him to sign a new deal and that hasn't really been the case.
"He's got all the knee issues and it's clear from his return that WWE has no plans to feature him."
Mysterio is historically one of the organization's biggest marketing names, particularly in the latin American market, but it seems that age (and injury) have left him struggling to continue in the business.
He first appeared in WWE in 2002 and is a three-time World Champion. But since returning from a knee injury in October last year he has been given a back seat by organisers who seem keen to focus on the newly popular talent such as Daniel Bryan.
Approaching 40 it may well be that Rey Mysterio's time in the limelight is coming to an end, but reports suggest that rather than retiring (which would probably be the best for his long-term health), the wrestler would link up with the AAA should he fail to earn a new deal.
