After victory in tag action alongside Kevin Owens against Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy, Rey Mysterio revealed the stipulation for his contest against “The Monday Night Messiah” at ‘The Horror Show At Extreme Rules.’
Following the brutal optical attacks in recent weeks, Mysterio confirmed that the contest would be an “Eye For An Eye” match.
WWE’s preview for the match has now officially confirmed that the “winner can only be determined by extracting the opponent’s eye”.
This certainly sits well alongside the pay-per-view’s Horror Show billing, although exactly how WWE will pull off a finish like this is unclear.
There are also reports that Mysterio is currently working for WWE without a contract. This may influence where they go with the match, however we can be fairly sure that whatever the future holds for Mysterio he plans to do it with two eyes.
The PPV will air on the WWE Network on Sunday July 19th. The current card is as follows:
- WWE Championship Match: Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler
- Raw Women’s Championship Match: Asuka vs. Sasha Banks
- Smackdown Women’s Championship Match: Bayley vs. Nikki Cross
- US Title Match: Apollo Crews vs. MVP
- Wyatt Swamp Fight: Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt
- Eye For An Eye Match: Seth Rollins vs. Rey Mysterio
