The deal was kept under wraps but the three-time champion has no interest in stopping just yet.

He told Sports Illustrated: “We never made the signing of my new deal public, but there is definitely going to be more time to see Rey Mysterio in WWE.

“I’m going to keep wrestling, at least until father time catches up and says, ‘It’s time to go.'”

In September it emerged Mysterio was set to be rewarded by McMahon after ‘turning down a huge offer from All Elite Wrestling’.

The Luchador had just been written off TV after his eye was extracted by Seth Rollins during a brutal Extreme Rules match.

He was widely-reported to be working on a pay-per-appearance basis for WWE after his contract expired earlier in the year.

That means he could legally have jumped ship to the Tony Khan-backed rival promotion AEW, following in the footsteps of Jon Moxley, Matt Hardy and Brodie Lee.

However, he and his family were rewarded for staying loyal by McMahon as Mysterio’s son Dominik continues his path to stardom in WWE.

After the youngster made his in-ring debut against Rollins at SummerSlam, he achieved a life-long ambition the next night when he tag-teamed with his dad to take on the Monday Night Messiah and Murphy.

The Mysterios, including Rey’s daughter Aalyah and wife Angie then closed out that week’s episode of Raw.

Dominik defeated Murphy in a Street Fight after his family helped him deliver a vicious beatdown.

And Mysterio Snr added: “I am so happy to see my son Dominik doing so well, and it means so much to me to be with him in WWE.

“When I left WWE [in 2015], I was tired, I was beat and I was going through a phase in my life where I just needed some time off. That time away recharged my batteries.

“During that period, I was given time to think about what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

“I sat down with my wife and my kids, and we ultimately made the decision together that it was time for me to come back to WWE.

“I am thankful for that opportunity because I knew my son wanted to be part of this industry, and I wanted to reopen the door for Dominik to eventually get a foot in the business.

“WWE has treated me like I had never left, and I am so grateful and truly blessed for that.

“I’m under WWE’s wings once again, and they’ve seen such potential in Dominik and such a bright future for him.”
