According to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the belief is that Rey Mysterio's 30 day suspension from WWE will cost him in excess of $100,000. Mysterio will be missing the Breaking Point PPV, multiple house shows, and is not expected to return for the Hell in a Cell PPV on October 4th since WWE will not have time to build up a match for him.
Mysterio will be allowed to collect merchandise sales during the suspension, which is a huge revenue source for stars in WWE. It is believed Mysterio earns $1.5 million annually, and a large chunk of that comes from merchandise sales, as he is one of the top sellers in WWE. Mysterio's merchandise sales have always been strong even when he has been out with injuries.
