As wrestling fans there are a few questions we love to ask and one those questions are What if? Like What if WCW never went out of business, What if TNA got better Ratings on Spike? What if Sting came to WWE sooner? What if The Wars Never Ended? There are a lot of What if questions we can ask ourselves as fans, but do we ever ask ourselves What if signed that went somewhere else.
Situation has that for the last year around maybe even longer Rey Mysterio has had severe injury issues that have practically prevented him from entering the ring since WrestleMania of last year. But that's all also for almost a year or more than that WWE and Rey Mysterio have been wrapped up in a contract dispute as Rey wanted out, and WWE felt they were owed by Rey for his missed time. However, that all changed late last week when the news came out that WWE had come to terms with release of Rey Mysterio from contract. Following that Rey Mysterio would now be a free man for the first time since the fall of 2002. The question was what does he do now where does he go.
The Answer and Thoughts:
Fact is TNA made a run at CM Punk (whether they want to admit it or not) and they offered Alberto Del Rio and Del Rio almost signed from what I remember but couldn't come to terms with the company. So with that being said now that Rey is a free agent it is only fitting for him to be offered by TNA as well. The problem for TNA is two fold, would they have the money to offer him and number two Rey stated he only wants to go to AAA/Lucha Underground and not TNA.
In my book I firmly believe with the taping schedule TNA has it would have played to Rey's advantage, because he would only have to work three times a month and that's it. But I guess when he appeared via Video package on the AAA PPV late last year that was a pretty good indication that Rey would be going to AAA once WWE finally let him go. Just imagine Rey up against TNA's top stars like Bobby Roode, Kurt Angle, Lashley, Jeff Hardy, MVP, Austin Aries and also the stars of the X-Division like Low-Ki.
However, the news broke earlier today that Rey signed with AAA and will be appearing with the company in the not to distant future. Even though I knew this to be the case just being able to wonder would it be like to see Rey Mysterio in TNA and ourselves What If? That's why I wrote this, to ask What If!!!
