Mi Familia. A bitter rivalry, that has gone beyond business and has become very personal, will be settled in the WWE Championship match at Survivor Series 2019.
It was announced tonight on Raw that Brock Lesnar will be defending his title against Rey Mysterio.
While Lesnar opened the show, Mysterio would get the last laugh:
Lesnar made his rivalry with Mysterio intensely personal when he attacked The Ultimate Underdog’s son Dominik on the Sept. 30 edition of Raw. Mysterio retaliated, bringing Cain Velasquez — who famously defeated Lesnar for the UFC Heavyweight Title in 2010 — to WWE on Friday Night SmackDown that same week. That confrontation, moments after The Beast Incarnate’s WWE Championship victory over Kofi Kingston, set the stage for a WWE Title showdown between the longtime rivals at WWE Crown Jewel.
Lesnar vanquished Velasquez with the Coquina Clutch in that rapid-fire bout, but Mysterio refused to allow Lesnar the satisfaction of victory, bludgeoning The Beast with a steel chair. The Ultimate Underdog’s brazen assault infuriated Lesnar, who quit SmackDown for the sole purpose of coming to Raw to “hunt” the red brand Superstar.
In search of answers, not even the announce team was safe from Lesnar’s Raw rampage. After The Conqueror sent Dio Maddin crashing through the announce table, Rey pummeled the nigh-unstoppable juggernaut with a steel pipe and challenged The Beast to a WWE Championship Match at Survivor Series.
I’m not sure where WWE is going with this, but I am intrigued. Does this mean that the WWE Championship is staying on Raw, while the Universal Championship is staying on Smackdown? I have no idea where all of this is going, which makes for good television.
