Rey Mysterio Reportedly In Talks For WrestleMania 34 Match Against Major Rumored Name
As we noted earlier today, Rey Mysterio, who made his return to WWE in a surprise Royal Rumble appearance this year, was in attendance for the WWE Smackdown Live event in San Diego last night.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso, Mysterio is also backstage at Smackdown Live tonight, and is reportedly negotiating with officials for a return to the company at WrestleMania.
Furthermore, Barrasso is reporting Mysterio has been discussing a major match at this year’s PPV in New Orleans, against John Cena.
Cena won a match tonight on WWE Smackdown against AJ Styles, and will be inserted into the main event of WWE Fastlane, making the match now a Six Pack Challenge for the WWE Championship. With current WrestleMania plans calling for AJ Styles to face Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Title at WrestleMania, that would leave Cena open for a match:

As we have been reporting since Royal Rumble, WWE and Rey Mysterio are both interested in working out a return deal, however the hold up has been WWE wanting Mysterio to work a full-time schedule whereas Mysterio wants to work a part-time schedule due to his age and injury history.
