Rey Mysterio injured during a match at WWE SmackDown

11 months ago By Sports Desk

Rey Mysterio unintentionally alarmed the WWE Universe during the last Friday Night Smackdown. The major development from that episode revolved around concerns about an injury to the iconic pro-wrestling personality, initially forecasting weeks of inactivity ahead.

Unexpected Ending in WWE SmackDown Match: Rey Mysterio’s Injury Alters Plans

In a surprising turn of events during last week’s WWE SmackDown, the anticipated showdown between Rey Mysterio and Santos Escobar for the United States Title Invitational Final took an unexpected twist. The match concluded prematurely due to an injury sustained by Rey Mysterio. The pivotal moment occurred as Santos Escobar executed a tope on Mysterio outside the ring just before a scheduled commercial break. The WWE medical team swiftly attended to Mysterio’s injury, and the bout was swiftly concluded with Escobar emerging victorious. Several sources later confirmed the legitimacy of Mysterio’s injury, leading to an audible decision to award Escobar the win.

Rey Mysterio’s Injury Update and Its Impact on WWE Plans

According to the latest update from Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Rey Mysterio’s condition is reportedly stable, and his injury is described as a momentary daze suffered during the match. The injury occurred earlier in the contest, with the dive spot strategically employed to mask the situation. Notably, Santos Escobar’s victory had been part of the original script, implying that Mysterio’s injury has no immediate bearing on WWE’s plans for the US title. The upcoming August 11 edition of SmackDown is set to feature Austin Theory defending his title against Escobar at the Saddledome in Calgary, Canada.

Rey Mysterio’s Interest in NXT North American Championship

Besides pursuing the US title, Rey Mysterio has also expressed a keen interest in the NXT North American Championship. His estranged son, Dominik Mysterio, holds this championship, who clinched the title and has successfully defended it, often with assistance from The Judgement Day. Despite their differences, Rey has voiced his pride in Dominik’s accomplishments and growth as an individual. He lamented his inability to offer congratulations due to their strained relationship. Nevertheless, Rey humorously warned that if a confrontation were to occur, he would not hesitate to vie for the North American Title himself.

Rey Mysterio’s Unexpected Alliance in Upcoming NXT Match

An unexpected alliance appears to be forming in a surprising twist on this week’s NXT. Rey Mysterio’s involvement took an unforeseen turn during a confrontation involving Rhea Ripley, Dominik Mysterio, and Dragon Lee. Dragon Lee praised Rey as a legendary luchador, implying that Dominik’s accomplishments pale in comparison. Dragon Lee proposed a title match, to which Dominik agreed, with Rhea Ripley also indicating her presence. The revelation came when Rey Mysterio appeared on the Titantron, announcing his support for Dragon Lee in the forthcoming North American Championship match, positioning himself in Lee’s corner.

Upcoming NXT Match Card Revealed

Looking ahead to the upcoming NXT episode on August 8th, a high-stakes match card has been unveiled:

– North American Championship Match: Dominik Mysterio vs. Dragon Lee (with Rey Mysterio in Dragon Lee’s corner)
– Mustafa Ali vs. Axiom
– Tyler Bate vs. Noam Dar
– Bron Breakker vs. Von Wagner

This action-packed lineup promises intense battles and potentially pivotal moments in the ongoing NXT narrative.
