It looks like Rey Mysterio has finally left the WWE after months of rumours about his future.

Mysterio, a former WWE Heavyweight Champion, has been moved to the alumni section on the WWE's official website.

Whilst no official confirmation has been made by the WWE, this usually indicates that a wrestler has left the company or retired. The former seems more likely to be the case for Mysterio.

Back to Mexico?

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 like he has finally gotten his wish after several injury disrupted years forcing him lower and lower down the pecking order.

The 40-year old Mysterio - real name Oscar Gutierrez - made his WWE debut in 2002 against Chavo Guerrero and went on to become a real star in the company, thanks to his high flying style and connection with fans.

Younger WWE fans absolutely loved the masked marvel and his trademark masks became some of the biggest selling merchandise in the history of Vince McMahon's company.

Multiple Champ

Mysterio became WWE Heavyweight Champion in 2006 at WrestleMania 22, where he beat Kurt Angle and Randy Orton in a Triple Threat Match to become the smallest ever holder of the WWE's most prestigious title.

Mysterio was in that main event after winning the 2006 Royal Rumble after entering the tournament from the number two spot. Mysterio was a two-time Heavyweight champ, one-time WWE Champion, three-time Cruiserweight champ and two-time Intercontinental Champion.
