After WrestleMania 36, Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio were embroiled in a long-standing personal feud. It led to an “Eye For An Eye” contest at Extreme rules (which was dubbed The Horror Show at Extreme Rules in 2020 during the pandemic-driven cinematic wrestling craze). Rollins threw Mysterio’s eye out of his head, threw up and we all went about our business…because pro wrestling.
Why am I bringing this up
big better-than-it-had-a-right-to-go moment in recent sports entertainment history? Because WWE is a Mysterio vs. Rollins match for Monday announced Raw.
No one should lose an organ in this. In fact, it’s likely it won’t even lead to a decision — at least not one we get just because of Rey or Seth’s actions. Both men are once again locked in another longstanding, personal feud. Just not with each other. Mysterio deals with The Judgment Day and Rhea Ripley seduces/recruits his son Dominik to join the heel group and help them take out Rey’s old friend Edge. Rollins and Matt Riddle have been dancing themselves for a few months and are going to a Fight Pit match this year Extreme rules in a couple of weeks. They both interfered in each other’s matches last Monday, with Rollins getting mixed up in Riddle’s tag match with… you guessed it,
Frank Stallone Last judgement.
WWE also announced that Raw Women’s champion Bianca Belair will face Damage CRTL’s IYO SKY Monday night in Edmonton.
Belair has led the brand’s red babyfaces against SKY’s heel trio, Dakota Kai & Bayley, and was challenged by Bayley for the title on October 8 Extreme rules PLE.
Those join two previously announced matches for the show: Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano vs. Alpha Academy, and Riddle vs. Judgment Day’s Damian Priest.
Sound like a good time? Or are you the kind of sick person who has to watch someone lose an eye to be entertained?
