Do not stress: Rey Mysterio didn’t really lose an eye on live TELEVISION.
The “eye for an eye match” tagline for Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio’s newest conference on WWE Extreme Rules was, for absence of a much better term, a bit on the nose. The last time they had actually met a couple of months back, Rollins had actually required Mysterio’s eye onto a couple of steel actions, which resulted in the former champ losing his vision in one eye.
When they reunited at The Scary Show today for Extreme Rules, that “eye for an eye” label appeared to turn rather actual for a second.
In Spite Of Mysterio’s best efforts to go full- scale Old Testimony and precise his vengeance, Rollins sadistically tried to put his opponent’s eye out when again. Eventually, he chose the very same technique as last time, utilizing the steel actions to attempt and different Mysterio’s eyball from its socket when again.
For the briefest of scary minutes, it looked like though he had really done it, with Rollins unexpectedly turning away in disgust and Mysterio huddling on the ground as the medical fitness instructors stroked in and the referee called the match.
Never ever fear: Rey Mysterio’s eye is really great.
Nevertheless, as the close-up pictures show on TalkSport, the eyeball Mysterio was holding was plainly phony. There was likewise an apparent absence of blood for such a severe injury, when the audience took a minute to consider it.
More than likely, Mysterio either had the prop eyeball on his individual the entire time or it was offered to him by the referee throughout a break in the action. It was reported throughout the pay-per-view that Mysterio was sent out to the medical professional and there was an excellent chance of his eye being conserved, so that’s probably the instructions his story will take next to represent his eye really being great.
Next: WWE no longer requires to rely on cinematic matches.
