WWE SummerSlam notes: Rey Mysterio, The Hurt Business

Raw's go-home show for SummerSlam featured a couple of developments regarding matches set for Sunday's pay-per-view.

Rey Mysterio will be in his son Dominik's corner when Dominik makes his in-ring debut against Seth Rollins in a street fight at SummerSlam. Mysterio returned to WWE television tonight for the first time since losing his Eye for an Eye match against Rollins at Extreme Rules last month. Mysterio and Dominik got revenge on Rollins and Murphy on tonight's Raw, attacking them with kendo sticks.
