For years, Wrestlemania weekend was a highly profitable one for Rey Mysterio, as he usually received a hefty pay per view bonus from WWE for being on the card. He is no longer with the company but still stands to take home a good amount of money this year. In addition to hosting a party at a club, Mysterio has now been signed on for WrestleCon. His asking price was $20,000, and the belief is that he is receiving at least this much.

While the company initially had hoped that Rey Mysterio would be available for the Survivor Series, the belief is that WWE has had a change of heart about rushing the former world heavyweight champion back into action. Management is more than likely going to save his in ring return at the Royal Rumble, where Mysterio can be one of the surprise entrants at the pay per view. A feud would then be set up, so that he can work a Wrestlemania match.
