— WWE announced today that Rey and Dominik Mysterio will team up to take on Seth Rollins and Murphy this Sunday at WWE Payback. Here’s the current card:
– The Fiend Bray Wyatt vs. Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat No Holds Barred Match for the Universal Title
– Sasha Banks & Bayley vs. Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles
– Apollo Crews vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE US Title
– Keith Lee vs. Randy Orton
– Rey & Dominik Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins & Murphy
Though they were robbed of a chance to beat Seth Rollins & Murphy, Dominik & Rey Mysterio will get another opportunity to topple their foes at WWE Payback.
After months of attacks and ridicule against his father and his family’s name, Dominik finally stepped into the ring against Rollins at SummerSlam. Dominik not only made his father proud, but he earned the respect of the WWE Universe in one of the most impressive in-ring debuts in recent memory. But he came up short in a valiant effort against the four-time World Champion.
The Mysterios were primed to make the most of their matchup against The Monday Night Messiah and his disciple this past Monday night, and Dominik again impressed, showcasing a spectacular tornado DDT and springboard plancha among other maneuvers, as well as teaming up with his father for a double-619 on Murphy.
With Dominik poised to hit a top-rope frog splash that may have put Murphy away, the ring was seized by RETRIBUTION for an all-out mugging of the Mysterios. Meanwhile, Rollins and Murphy high-tailed it away from ringside to safely watch from a distance with a grin as their adversaries were left lying.
Now with a second chance to score a victory in this ultra-personal rivalry, can the father-son duo conquer their foes? Or will Rollins and Murphy prove they have the Mysterios’ number?
