As expected, former WWE United States Champion Rey Mysterio made his big return on WWE’s flagship show, Monday Night RAW.
He did so on Monday’s episode in Newark, NJ at the Prudential Arena. As seen on the show, Mysterio issued an open challenge, which was answered by Bobby Lashley, who went over in the match. After the match, Lashley beat down the legendary pro wrestler.
Mysterio was last seen on WWE television in May when he was forced to vacate the United States Title, which was awarded to Samoa Joe. The reason that the title was vacated was due to Mysterio suffering an injury during his match against Samoa Joe.
This is where he won the title at the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view event in Hartford, CT. It was a memorable night for the future WWE Hall of Famer as he became a Grand Slam Champion.
Shortly thereafter, Mysterio commented on the injury that he suffered at the end of the match where he noted that he separated an acromioclavicular joint in his shoulder. Before he was injured, he was feuding with Joe that also included a match at WrestleMania 35.
