I was going to repot and I noticed it was way too wet. I know it has been that way for at least a week.

If it is that wet it will be very heavy and may be prone to breaking apart at the root ball. Wait until it dries out some more.

If there is limited drainage from the existing pot, you can consider tipping it over on the side (carefully and with some padding to avoid breakage) and drilling more holes in the bottom of the pot.

If it's a ceramic pot you will need a masonry drill bit. If plastic you can use a general purpose drill bit.
