Instead, he’s stuck around, and the two have continued a deeply personal feud, one that has involved multiple wrestlers, and even Rey’s son Dominik. The focus has continued to be on Mysterio’s eye. It’s ultimately brought us to tonight (Sun., July 19, 2020), to the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, to Extreme Rules.

Mysterio was tended to and taken away.
