Nothing like a Gauntlet match to build new stars.
Well not if you’re Cesaro or Sami Zayn. This week on Raw, United States champion AJ Styles was in need of a number one contender before SummerSlam. So WWE put The Swiss Superman, Zayn, Ricochet, Rey Mysterio, and Andrade into a match.
Mysterio and Cesaro began the match, with both men getting a decent amount of time in the ring.
The Lucha legend hit a frog splash on Cesaro for the win and then immediately caught Zayn in a small package for another three count.
Andrade was out next and his chemistry with Mysterio instantly sparked right back up. The former NXT Champion proved to be too much for the worn out Mysterio and a timely hammerlock DDT was enough for Andrade to advance.
Post-match, Andrade ripped off the mask of Mysterio before Ricochet came out to make the save.
In just a short period of time, Ricochet and Andrade showed off what they can do if the pair are ever granted a long-term feud together. Despite a few distractions from Zelina Vega, Ricochet out dueled Andrade for the win.
The SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) takes place on Sun., Aug. 11, 2019 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
