WWE is always looking to add more bodies to their roster, and it looks like they have their eyes on two very talented ones that have been champions with the promotion before.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE has interesting in bringing back former WWE champion Rey Mysterio and former Intercontinental Champion John Morrison. Both wrestlers currently work with Lucha Underground, a TV show that is owned by Mexican wrestling promotion AAA.
WWE has reportedly been interested in bringing both back to the company over the past year.
Mysterio left WWE in early 2015 after his contract expired. Mysterio is still a big money draw even after an over 20-year career in professional wrestling. Mysterio is one of the few active wrestlers that was a part of WCW during their peak run between 1996 and 1998.
Mysterio was a three-time world champion in WWE, having won the World Heavyweight Championship twice and the WWE Championship once.
Morrison left WWE in 2011 to recover from injuries. He later went to Lucha Underground, where he has revitalized his career under the moniker “Johnny Mundo”. Morrison was a former four-time tag champion and three-time Intercontinental Champion in his WWE career.
