Rey Mysterio came out with his arm in a sling. He gave a shout-out to Cleveland. Mysterio said he’s training Cain Velasquez to get him ready to take the WWE Title from Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel. First, The Ultimate Underdog wanted to thank everyone. For the support for him and his son Dominick, for the outpouring of love and support his family has experienced. Even before The Beast Incarnate attacked him and his son.
A “you deserve it!” chant started up. So, he said this love goes back to when he was thinking of retiring. Mysterio said he has so much to be thankful for, and he’s honored for the love fans have shown to him and his family. However, this is why he’s here tonight to say it straight from his family – the fans are his family, which is why we are all going to celebrate together at Crown Jewel when Cain wins the WWE Title from that bastard Lesnar.
Mysterio’s more-of-the-same promo is thankfully interrupted by Paul Heyman. Heyman appeared on the big screen and wonders if Rey would be saying these same words if his client was live in Cleveland. Of course, he wouldn’t. Heyman said Rey knew Lesnar can’t be on RAW tonight because he was drafted to SmackDown. Lesnar’s advocate said he couldn’t be drafted anywhere, which is why he’s here tonight to deliver this message to Rey on behalf of The Beast.
Rey Mysterio confronted Shelton Benjamin
Heyman went on about how Lesnar will dominate at Crown Jewel, and take care of both of them, but Rey cut him off and has strong words for him. The Master went on until the music interrupted and Shelton Benjamin came out. He knocked Mysterio and wasn’t sure why Cain gets a WWE Title shot. Mysterio said this is about family, but Shelton said Lesnar is his family.
Shelton talked about his history with Lesnar. He said besides Heyman, no one in WWE knows Lesnar better than him. So, Mysterio said Shelton has this all mixed up. Shelton disagreed and said he wanted to see what happens if he shoves Rey around. He pushed Mysterio. Shelton said maybe he will keep shoving Rey and get a title shot. He kept shoving Mysterio and talking trash, backing him into the corner, lightly slapping him.
Cain Velasquez brawled with Shelton Benjamin
Mysterio couldn’t fight back but seemed surprised by his former friend Shelton. Shelton asked where Rey’s buddy is now and what is Rey going to do. Suddenly, the music interrupted, and Cain came out to a pop. Cain entered the ring and stared Shelton down. Shelton tried for a takedown but missed. Cain shook his head at Shelton. He slammed Shelton and went to work on him on the mat, also mounting him.
Cain applied a Sleeper, and Shelton tapped after resisting. He ended up on the floor while Cain and Mysterio stared out at him from the ring. Cain was all business, and fans were standing, watching what’s happening. Shelton clutched his throat while down on the outside. He got up and limped to the back while The Master of 619 and former UFC watch from the ring.
