From WWE:

UPDATE, 7/28/20: WWE Digital has learned that Rey Mysterio’s vision is improving slowly each day, and that his optic nerve is intact, completely secured and back in its socket. A timeline for Mysterio’s return to the ring is unknown at this time.

INITIAL REPORT: WWE Digital has learned that Rey Mysterio remains at a local medical facility and is responding well to treatment.

After the sickening conclusion of the Eye for an Eye Match Sunday night, Charly Caruso provided an update on the condition of Mysterio. Mysterio was rushed to a local medical facility to be treated for a potential globe luxation. Medical experts were optimistic that if the optic nerve is not severed and there is not too much strain on the blood vessels and nerves that connect the eye to the rest of the head, there’s a chance Mysterio can maintain his vision.

Stay with WWE social and digital platforms for the latest updates on Mysterio’s condition.

It was reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer that Mysterio had not signed a new contract with WWE as of Monday, July 20.

Mysterio has been off television since Extreme Rules, but his son Dominik confronted Seth Rollins, the man who took his father's eye, on Monday's WWE Raw.
