Update on why Rey Mysterio missed WWE Raw

Dave Meltzer noted that Mysterio wasn't on the show due to a medical issue.

On Wrestling Observer Radio overnight, Dave Meltzer gave an update on why Rey Mysterio missed last night's episode of WWE Raw.

Mysterio was supposed to face Veer Mahaan on Raw last night, but the match was changed to Mahaan vs. Rey's son Dominik. Rey didn't appear on the episode.

Meltzer said on WOR that a medical issue was the reason Mysterio wasn't on the show.

"He's a medical issue," Meltzer said. "It's not false advertising or they changed their mind. It was he was unavailable tonight. So they put Dominik in the place and Dominik just got destroyed. So, they could probably do Rey in a week or two."

Mahaan submitted Dominik with a Cervical Clutch in their match. Following the match, there was an angle where Mahaan put the hold on Dominik two more times. Dominik was stretchered out as part of the angle.

After weeks of hype videos, Mahaan arrived on Raw last week by attacking Rey and Dominik.

Rey vs. Mahaan wasn't the only announced match that couldn't take place on last night's Raw. Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan were scheduled to challenge Sasha Banks & Naomi for the Women's Tag Team titles, but Ripley wasn't on the show due to being "in protocol." Naomi instead defeated Morgan in a singles match.

Banks & Naomi vs. Ripley & Morgan for the Women's Tag Team titles will take place on Raw next week.
