Mysterio becomes #1 Contender!
On Raw, Rey Mysterio won a Fatal-5 Way elimination match to become the number one contender for the WWE Universal Championship.
In a match which also included WWE United States Champion AJ Styles, WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura (with Sami Zayn), Ricochet, and one-half of the Raw Tag Team Champions Robert Roode.
Last eliminating “The Glorious” Robert Roode, Mysterio will now face WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins next week on the “Season Premiere” of Monday Night Raw for the WWE Universal Championship at the the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.
Can Mysterio do the unthinkable and win the WWE Championship from “The BeastSlayer” for the very first time? or will Seth Rollins retain the Universal Championship, continuing to build momentum towards his WWE Universal Championship Hell in a Cell match with Bray Wyatt at the upcoming Hell in a Cell event.
What role will The Fiend have to play in the match? Could Rey Mysterio make his way on Bray Wyatt’s “friendship wall” inside the FireFly Fun House?
