• Rey Mysterio Out Of Action For The Rest Of 2020
Dominik & Rey Mysterio teamed up at last Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view to defeat Seth Rollins and Murphy in a Tag Team match.
On this week’s RAW, Rey was set to face Seth Rollins for an opportunity to compete in a Triple-Threat match, which would determine the #1 contender for the WWE Championship. However, he was replaced by Dominik.
WWE has announced that Mysterio suffered torn triceps at Payback.
Below is what they posted:
“Rey Mysterio suffered a torn triceps during his match at WWE Payback Sunday night, WWE.com has learned.
Mysterio teamed up with his son, Dominik, to defeat Seth Rollins & Murphy at the live WWE Network special. He was originally scheduled to face Seth Rollins on RAW in a match where the winner would advance to a Triple Threat Match later in the night, which would determine WWE Champion Drew McIntyre’s opponent at WWE Clash of Champions. Dominik will replace his father in the bout.
Stick with WWE’s Digital and Social platforms for more on Rey Mysterio’s status as it becomes available.”

This injury could keep Mysterio out of action for 6-8 months, meaning that he’ll most likely miss the rest of 2020 as an in-ring performer.
