Mysterio and Konnan were in Nashville as Mysterio met with Global Force Wrestling officials earlier in the day to negotiate a deal with the company, has confirmed.   We are told by several sources that Mysterio "has a contract offer in his hands."

Mysterio was last seen on The El Rey Network's Lucha Underground series, which is completing the airing of its third season shortly.  A fourth season has not yet been announced.  Mysterio signed a "first look" deal with the cable network in 2016 to develop projects for the star, but as of this writing, nothing has been green-lit.

Mysterio left WWE in 2015 following a long run there that including winning several WWE World championships, including a Wrestlemania 22 win over Randy Orton and Kurt Angle.  Over the course of his career, Mysterio has been a major attraction for ECW, AAA and WCW as well.
