Meltzer said that Mysterio still hasn't signed a new deal which was the reason for the finish. However, his gut is that Mysterio will re-sign with WWE which is the reason they left his status open ended after the show. Earlier this month, Meltzer reported that Mysterio was working without a contract.
Meltzer said the reason U.S. Champion Apollo Crews wasn't on the show was due to COVID-19. He didn't say specifically that Crews had tested positive, but alluded to that being the case. He didn't have a a timeline of when Crews is expected to return.
WWE said at the top of the show that Crews had failed a pre-match physical and was not cleared to compete in his match against MVP. He was last seen on the June 29th Raw when he was pinned by MVP.
