Mysterio - Konnan

WWE Would No Longer Be Interested In Rey Mysterio – Konnan Is The Cause?

As we have already reported, Rey Mysterio has already declared himself a free agent , and since the future of Underground Wrestling is uncertain, he hopes to start 2018 with a new company. This will be when the three months of their non-competition clause will begin, when the third season of the Underground Fight ends on October 18 .

Although Mysterio was negotiating with both WWE and GFW , it seems that this will be the last place where it will end.

Justin Barrasso, Sports Illustrated, reported the following today :

“After showing initial interest, WWE rejected the legendary fighter, as Vince McMahon is not interested in working with those who represent Mysterio, specifically Konnan .

“McMahon’s grudge against Konnan dates back decades, when WWE invested thousands of dollars in the character of Max Moon for Konnan, but Konnan finally decided to continue fighting in Mexico.

“Recently, Konnan was invited by Chris Jericho to backstage at a WWE event, but his appearance did not help to correct the problems that exist between him and the WWE office.

“Mysterio will surely receive a good supply of Global Force Wrestling. He could instantly become the company’s biggest star, along with a fresh face that could replace the troubled Alberto El Patron on the payroll.

“The only problem would be the desire to Mysterio to retain control of their independent dates and dictate their dates GFW, but the positives far outweigh the negatives regarding the connection between Mysterio and GFW.”

On the situation with the character of Max Moon, Konnan told in an interview published in SUPER FIGHTS CHART # 9 (special issue on Konnan, March 13, 2006):

“At that time I was working in the Arena Mexico and the fight was like hot bread, besides I had a lot of work, because I had just lost my mask with the Aguayo Dog and the pique was very requested. Then I was making a telenovela called El abuelo y yo; He had just finished recording a rap album and had performances on Siempre en Domingo and almost all the variety programs, and the truth was very tired.

“Every time I went to WWE I had to carry all the boxes of the robot, because I had to travel to Los Angeles to pick up the equipment, and then to the city where I was going to fight because the team cost thirteen thousand dollars and They were being modified.

“As I told you, I was busy with work, and twice I did not get to recordings on TV and they ran to me.

“The character then gave it to Paul Diamond, who was a fighter who had been unsuccessful in WWE for years. Diamond told Vince that he had the equipment left and gave him a chance. When I carried the equipment, I could see the braids, so he had to grow his hair with extensions. “

But it was not only the situation of Max Moon which provoked Konnan’s enmity with WWE, as the fortachón received antirecomendations for WWE by Antonio Peña (in 1997, when AAA worked with McMahon) and, mainly, by Paco Alonso , the promoter of the CMLL, who were sent through Víctor Quiñónes , who for years was president of WWF Latino.
