Rey Mysterio gets squashed in his return to Raw

Well that felt like a waste of Rey Mysterio’s open challenge.

When fans last saw Mysterio, he was relinquishing the United States championship due to a shoulder injury suffered at the hands of Samoa Joe. Mysterio dropped the belt back in early June and WWE hyped up his return to Raw with an open challenge.

Would it be answered by an NXT call-up? An old rival? Someone from SmackDown? Nope! Bobby Lashley returned from injuries he suffered last week at the hands of Braun Strowman, and nobody really wanted to see him face Mysterio.

Not only did Bobby Lashley answer Mysterio’s call from the back, he proceeded to take out the Lucha Legend with ease. To add insult to injury, Lashley also destroyed Mysterio on the entrance ramp after the match.

Is Rey Mysterio really back or did WWE just use him to try and get Bobby Lashley over one more time?
