You never know who might show up when you watch a WWE event, and earlier this year Rey Mysterio surprised the fans when he entered the 2018 Royal Rumble match.

Since then Mysterio has openly said that he’s been negotiating with WWE, and it looks like he could be returning to the company sooner than later.

Ringside News and Barnburner are reporting that WWE officials want Rey Mysterio to return before WWE 2K19 is released in October.

Mysterio has been featured prominently in the marketing material for the game, and WWE officials want him back sometime around or before the release date.

It’s being reported that right now Rey’s scheduled return date is set for the September 24 episode of Raw, but plans could change.
