Bengaluru, July 7: Rey Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins in an 'eye for an eye' match is confirmed for Extreme Rules 2020 following what transpired on this week's episode of WWE Monday Night RAW.
Last night's show saw Mysterio and Kevin Owens teaming up against Rollins and Murphy in a tag match where the winning team got to pick the stipulation for Extreme Rules. Dominik distracted Murphy by raking into the eye when the referee wasn't watching and thus allowed his father to execute a 619. He followed up with a Frogsplash to pick up the win.
The Master of the 619 then announced that said he wants to pick Rollins' eye out at the upcoming PPV event just like Rollins tried to hurt him before causing and a gruesome eye injury that cost months of his career.
F4WOnline reported prior to WWE Raw that WWE inserted some dangerous eye stunts in the feud between Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins' storyline for a reason as they're set to battle for their eyes at Extreme Rules. This is one night of the year where matches take place under different capacities.
"An Eye For An Eye" is the latest stipulation to be introduced in WWE programme that reportedly allows the winner to take out the opponent's eye once the match is over. WWE went beyond limits in the past but pushing the boundaries in this PG Era was somewhat unexpected. But then again a fresh setup for the match is going to be a sure-shot attraction for the audience.
In another stipulation news for Extreme Rules, Dolph Ziggler has the privilege to choose a gimmick match for his title shot against Drew McIntyre. But he announced during RAW that he won't reveal it until it's time for the show. The show-off reaffirmed in a promo that the stipulation will be a secret until it's time for the match, itself.
United States Title match was also confirmed for Extreme Rules on Raw where MVP announced that he will be challenging the champion Apollo Crews for the title. Apollo wasn't present on this week's RAW to sell a kayfabe attack by Bobby Lashley from last week that came after MVP's non-title victory. Meanwhile, MVP also revealed a newly designed United States Title belt design during tonight's RAW episode.
