WWE have confirmed the legendary Rey Mysterio or Seth Rollins could potentially LOSE AN EYE in their upcoming match.
The Monday Night Raw superstars are due to settle their bitter feud at next week’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
And the masked icon, who provided a glimpse of his true identity yesterday on social media, has decided to step it up a notch in a terrifying WWE first.
WWE announced: “The Horror Show at Extreme Rules added a new level of terror as Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins will meet in an Eye for an Eye Match.
“Mysterio teamed with Kevin Owens to defeat Rollins & Murphy for the right to choose the gory stipulation where a winner can only be determined by extracting the opponent’s eye.”
The gruesome stipulation came about after Rollins put the high-flier on the shelf for weeks before gauging his eye onto the steel steps last month.
Mysterio’s son Dominick has made numerous appearances to defend his father’s honour and could help his now “medically cleared” dad out at Extreme Rules.
Meanwhile, Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer says Mysterio is not currently under contract with WWE.
He is believed to be working on a fee per appearance basis right now.
The 45-year-old allegedly asked Vince McMahon for more money when his deal expired, a request turned down due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, leading to this arrangement.
