It’s good to be the heel.
Raw began with Seth Rollins being arrogant about his new attitude. At the top of the third hour Rollins put his words into action. Rollins and the AOP set their sights on Rey Mysterio then pounced.
The reason for Rollins and crew cornering the United States champion? Mysterio gave Kevin Owens a steel pipe last week on Raw.

At least Rollins said he would show the Lucha Legend some mercy.
Just kidding, of course Rollins left the ring and then came back only to hit Mysterio with a Curb Stomp.

Backstage, Rollins would challenge Mysterio to a United States title match next week on Raw.
Is WWE setting up a long feud here? Or could Seth Rollins become United States champion and put Rey Mysterio out until the Royal Rumble?
