2014 was not a good year for the WWE, with superstars like CM Punk and Alberto Del Rio leaving the company, accompanied by injuries to star names.

And it seems like 2015 could be starting off in an equally poor manner with the news that Rey Mysterio could well be released after 12 years at the company.

According to reports from Wrestling Inc, the now 40-year old Mysterio has been asking to be released from the WWE for months and it seems now it is finally set to be granted, potentially even before WrestleMania 31.

Back in October, former WWE Spanish announcer Hugo Savinovich publicly stated Mysterio was finished with WWE and would be heading to AAA and/or possibly Lucha Underground, making it pretty clear where Mysterio wanted to go.

Mysterio had reportedly been asking for his release from WWE for quite sometime now, and it seems that a couple of tweets from him and Lucha Underground wrestler Chavo Guerrero could confirm that he is finally set to be granted his wish.

Earlier this week Mysterio tweeted a happy new year message that included that fans would be seeing more of him 'soon.' This has now been followed up by this tweet from Guerrero.

Rey actually faced Chavo in his first ever match in the WWE back in 2002 when he first joined the company from WCW. Since then Mysterio has been a two-time Heavyweight Champion, four-time tag champ, three-time Intercontinental champ and won the 2006 Royal Rumble.
