Dominik Mysterio to make in-ring debut at WWE SummerSlam


Dominik Mysterio's first official match is set to take place later this month.

WWE announced tonight that Dominik will make his in-ring debut against Seth Rollins at SummerSlam on Sunday, August 23. The match was made official with Rollins accepting a challenge that had been issued by Dominik.

After Dominik issued the challenge on tonight's Raw, Rollins and Murphy made an appearance later in the show. Rollins said that he and Murphy had some housekeeping to attend to before he responded to Dominik. Rollins and Murphy then confronted Tom Phillips for cheering Dominik on when he was hitting them with a kendo stick last week.

Rollins said the time has come to find a new voice of Raw, but Samoa Joe stood up to Murphy and defended his broadcast partner. Rollins and Murphy both had steel chairs and wanted Joe to get in the ring. Dominik then attacked Rollins and Murphy from behind with a kendo stick, gave Rollins a 619, and took them out with a dive to the floor. After that, Rollins declared that he accepts Dominik's challenge for SummerSlam.

WWE issued a new storyline update on Rey Mysterio last week following his loss to Seth Rollins in their Eye for an Eye match at Extreme Rules: "WWE Digital has learned that Rey Mysterio’s vision is improving slowly each day, and that his optic nerve is intact, completely secured and back in its socket. A timeline for Mysterio’s return to the ring is unknown at this time."

Here's the updated card for SummerSlam:

  • WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defending against Randy Orton
  • Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits defending against Andrade & Angel Garza
  • United States Champion Apollo Crews defending against MVP
  • Seth Rollins vs. Dominik Mysterio
