During an interview on The Kurt Angle Show, Rey Mysterio spoke about the end of WCW and why he wasn't immediately signed to a WWE contract.
"So, when the company was bought out I was told right off the bat that they were interested in me but they wanted me to let my WCW contract run out. Once it ended, we would sit down and do business. I thought that it was a nice way of saying, ‘We’re not interested,’ because a lot of contracts were bought out. Chavo [Guerrero], Booker T, a lot of guys. So, again I’m thinking, ‘Is Vince [McMahon] really gonna open up the doors for me because he doesn’t believe in small guys?’ I would hear that sometimes from [Kevin] Nash, from [Scott] Hall but I never lost hope and sure enough when that contract expired [Jim Ross] reached out and said, ‘Okay, we’re ready to do business,’ and that’s when I signed. So, they kept their word.”
