In WWE's quest to continue their growth with the Hispanic culture and wanting a Hispanic star, Vince McMahon is back on the "WE NEED IT NOW" kick. This is one of many reasons to why Almas got pushed to the moon in NXT seemingly out of nowhere.
Besides WWE obviously being all in on Rey Mysterio (taking care of his doctors and treatments), they have no issues with Rey finishing his previous obligations prior to returning full time. It was rumored that WWE was also very interested in Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr., however, they could not get clear answers on their contracts. WWE sent Gorza Jr. and Ultimo Ninja this week to go get WWE physical evaluations done. This would lead to many to believe if they pass, they will be brought in as well.
