Rey Mysterio is set to make his WWE return in October, according to reports, but he is already making the rounds to discuss his pending return, as well as his role in the upcoming WWE 2K19 video game.

“We started off with the Royal Rumble at the beginning of the year in January” Mysterio said, according to the Miami Herald. There was another offer on the table to do the Greatest Royal Rumble, and in between those two events, we’ve been going back and forth in conversations, trying to work out the right deal. It’s still up in the air. Nothing [is] secure, yet.”

Mysterio also discussed his involvement in WWE 2K19, including being featured in a recent commercial for the game.

“To see the amount of work that was put in by WWE to get this product out. To do things like they always do, top notch. My respect goes out to those who paid respect for Rey Mysterio. Whether it’s The Miz saying ‘He’s a pest,’ that’s a form of flattery from his end, a form of paying respect to what I’ve done for almost three decades. I was very happy with the end result. I was amazed as a matter of fact.”
