The rivalry between the two dates back to May 11 when Rollins put Mysterio on the shelf by jamming his eye into the edge of the steel steps. Since then, Rollins has traded words with Mysterio and gone after Mysterio's son Dominick as well. On Monday's WWE Raw, Rollins challenged Mysterio to a bout at WWE Extreme Rules. The match was quickly accepted by Mysterio.
But that wasn't all.
Following Mysterio accepting the challenge, Rey teamed with Kevin Owens to face Rollins and Murphy with the winning team getting to choose the stipulation for the match at Extreme Rules. Mysterio and Owens were victorious in the bout, leading to Mysterio announcing he and Rollins will meet in an Eye For An Eye match at Extreme Rules.
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 determined by extracting the opponent's eye.
The Monday Night Messiah has tormented the legendary luchador for months and nearly ended Mysterio's career with a gruesome attack on his eye. With his career in jeopardy, the iconic Superstar watched as his son Dominik got involved to defend his father's honor, but Dominik found himself in Rollins' sights as well. With Rollins attempting to replicate the same brutal ocular assault on Dominik, Mysterio promised to get "an eye for an eye" from the devious Superstar.
Can Mysterio achieve the ruthless justice he craves, or will Rollins finish the barbaric attack that set this match in motion?
