-As we previously reported, Rey Mysterio recently had his WWE contract renewed by Vince McMahon for one more year, even though there was no option period for one year in Rey’s contract. This was done because WWE contracts could be frozen in the event of an injury. Right now, Rey Mysterio has been dealing with a hand injury, but he has missed a significant amount of time in the last three years. He was out for nearly a year from the summer of 2011 to the summer of 2012. He also missed over eight months of action in 2013 due to a knee injury. Apparently, there is more to the situation than Rey’s deal simply being renewed for another year and there’s a potential legal situation that has yet to play out. Rey was actually considering leaving when his contract expired a month ago, but Vince McMahon renewed it for another year. Rey Mysterio is still listed right now on WWE’s injury list and there has been no talk about when he might be back. -WWE has reportedly made multiple developmental deal offers to Cody Hall, the son of WWE Hall of Famer, Scott Hall. Cody has turned down the offers, saying that he wants to make a name for himself on the independent circuit before he comes up to the big leagues. We’ve heard more than once that Cody Hall is serious about learning and making a name for himself on the independent circuit and internationally before he considers joining WWE. Cody was most recently backstage with his father, Scott Hall at last week’s WWE Smackdown tapings. They were invited to the show and said to just be visiting friends. -As we previously reported, WWE is looking at doing four live NXT specials on the WWE Network each year. Triple H mentioned during a conference call that their goal is to run a live special for NXT on the WWE Network quarterly and that the next would be sometime in August or September. It has not been confirmed, but with tapings booked for September 11th and September 25th, it looks as if the next live special will take place on September 10th. What do you think about Rey Mysterio’s contract being renewed another year? How do you feel about Cody Hall turning down WWE offers? Are you looking forward to the next NXT live special?
