As was previously reported, former three-time WWE World Champion Rey Mysterio had been in negotiations with Impact Wrestling as of late last year, but the talks eventually died down.
According to a new report from PWInsider.com, Mysterio and Impact had pretty much agreed to a deal at one point, and Mysterio was actually just about to make his debut for the company, but something happened at the last minute when Konnan got involved in the finalizing of the deal. As some fans may be aware, Rey trusts Konnan to represent him in negotiations with various promotions.
Impact officials would still like to try to bring Rey in for their April television tapings, but Rey is said to be leaning towards WWE at this point. The biggest problem with WWE for Rey is the fact that they would like for him to work full-time, but Rey is only interested in working a part-time schedule.
