Rey Mysterio suffered a torn triceps during his match at WWE Payback Sunday night, WWE.com has learned.

Mysterio teamed up with his son, Dominik, to defeat Seth Rollins & Murphy at the live WWE Network special. He was originally scheduled to face Seth Rollins on Raw in a match where the winner would advance to a Triple Threat Match later in the night, which would determine WWE Champion Drew McIntyre’s opponent at WWE Clash of Champions. Dominik will replace his father in the bout.

Mysterio and his family were interviewed backstage on Raw tonight prior to Dominik's match against Rollins. Mysterio said it would have meant the world to him to defeat Rollins and hopefully go on to earn a WWE Championship shot, but his loss is Dominik's gain and he's happy Dominik gets this opportunity. Mysterio said that when you've been in this career as long as he has, you understand injuries happen.

Rollins defeated Dominik in their match tonight. After the match, Rollins laid out Dominik with another curb stomp as the Mysterio family was shown watching on backstage.

Dave Meltzer reported earlier this month that Mysterio's new deal with WWE is believed to be for three years.
