Rey Mysterio has pledged an “eye for an eye” against Seth Rollins. Will Mysterio get the payback he covets in his return to the ring tonight on Raw when he teams up with Aleister Black to face Rollins & Murphy?
The Monday Night Messiah threatened Mysterio’s career two months ago with a heinous assault, grinding his eye into the corner of the steel stairs. The megalomaniacal Rollins later described the incident as an unfortunate necessity — one that allowed him to realize a moment of catharsis.
With Mysterio on the shelf, his son Dominik has courageously defended his father’s honor against Rollins. Dominik, who hasn’t been spared The Monday Night Messiah’s wrath either, will be with his father for his return to action.
Black has also taken up arms in Mysterio’s defense, though he and Humberto Carrillo were defeated by Rollins and his disciple last week. Rollins sent a clear message afterward, dressing Carrillo in one of Mysterio’s masks before executing a vicious Stomp on the steel steps.
Mysterio has surely been relishing this chance ever since Rollins took him out, but will he be in the condition to capitalize?
