Rey Mysterio is not working WWE live events this weekend, and the WWE isn’t that happy about it.

Mysterio made his return to the WWE this year at SmackDown 1000. He is back as a full-time talent with the SmackDown brand and has been booked for live shows up to Crown Jewel where he will be taking part in the first WWE World Cup.

However, this weekend, he is not booked for any live events as he is currently participating in Chris Jericho’s “Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager at Sea Cruise”.

According to reports, though Mysterio had informed the WWE of his participation in the crew and stated it as a pre-existing commitment he intended to keep when he agreed to sign his new contract, the WWE tried to get Mysterio to drop it.

The cruise set sail this Saturday from Miami and will dock at Nassau on Wednesday. Mysterio is currently advertised for next Tuesday’s SmackDown in Atlanta so it’s possible that he will leave the cruise a day early to make SmackDown.

Jericho’s cruise brings together personalities from the WWE, Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling and Impact Wrestling. WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler are the cruise hosts and other Hall of Famers, Mick Foley, Ricky Steamboat, Pat Patterson, and Diamond Dallas Page are also on board.

There is some speculation that the WWE’s reported reluctance to let Mysterio participate in the cruise could be a sign of cooling relations between Jericho and the company, which has previously seemed to be quite supportive of Jericho’s “other endeavors”. Perhaps a cruise with so many talents from other companies is just too much for the WWE to tolerate.

In a recent episode of his Talk is Jericho podcast, Jericho touched on the WWE’s reluctance to let Mysterio do the cruise after he re-signed. According to Jericho, Mysterio will be making a special guest appearance and they will be doing a live Talk is Jericho episode.

Jericho also revealed that he originally had wanted to work with NXT on the cruise. He had approached Triple H about having NXT talent on board but, “after six weeks of waiting” the answer was no.
