Dominik is being thrown right into the deep end

Street Fight

Dominik Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins extracted Rey Mysterio’s eye last month at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules, nearly blinding him. This prompted Rey’s son, Dominik, to appear on the July 27 episode of Raw in order to confront the Monday Night Messiah. A brawl ensued, Murphy shoved Aleister Black’s eye into the steel ring steps, and Dominik went berserk on the heels with a kendo stick.

One week later, Rollins threatened commentator Tom Phillips for cheering on Dominik during the prior week’s segment. Samoa Joe jumped to the defense of his broadcast partner, and Dominik ambushed Rollins from behind with another kendo stick attack. Seth was furious and accepted Dominik’s challenge for a match at SummerSlam.

The contract was signed on the Aug. 10 episode of Raw. Rollins said that Dominik has no chance in a standard wrestling match against the greatest superstar of this generation, so he turned the SummerSlam match into a Street Fight. That way, Dominik could use that kendo stick to somewhat even the odds, and would have no excuses when Seth ends his WWE career before it even begins.

Murphy and Seth eventually attacked Dominik and ripped him to shreds with multiple kendo sticks. Dominik’s torso was brutally marked up with welts from top to bottom after the beatdown was finished.

Rey Mysterio returned to Raw the following week and said he will be in Dominik’s corner during the Street Fight. Rollins responded by saying that the Mysterio name and legacy will end up being the ultimate sacrifice at SummerSlam. Murphy and Seth came down to the ring for an altercation, and it resulted in the Mysterios giving Seth a taste of his own medicine.

That’s where things stand heading into this Street Fight at SummerSlam 2020. Considering Dominik’s inexperience and how anything goes in a Street Fight, it’s reasonable to expect Rey and Murphy will be heavily involved in this bout.

Dominik’s first official match in WWE comes against one of the top pushed stars in the company over the last several years, on one of WWE’s prime pay-per-view events on the calendar.

No pressure, kid.
