Chris King reveals an interesting discovery concerning Sami Zayn and Rey Mysterio, and why he believes it’s going to culminate into a fantastic feud.
Ever since the Post-Mania-Raw when Sami Zayn returned from injury he’s been in limbo, yes he’s had some great matches with top stars but no real feud to sink his teeth into. Rey Mysterio, on the other hand, was recently involved in a bitter rivalry with The Samoan Submission Machine Samoa Joe over the United States Championship.
He recently became a Grand-slam Champion at Money in the Bank by defeating Joe to win the US title in one minute, but Mysterio was be forced to relinquish the title due to a shoulder injury back to his foe.

On July 8th episode of Raw Mysterio made his return from injury and laid out an open challenge, it was answered by an irate Bobby Lashley (who was driven through the Tron one week prior by The Monster Among Men Braun Strowman) and Lashley destroyed The Master of the 619!
One week later both Mysterio and Zayn competed in the first-ever cross-brand All-star Battle Royal to determine Brock Lesnar’s opponent for SummerSlam, which was ultimately won by the self-proclaimed Beastslayer Seth Rollins.
Two weeks ago at the Raw Reunion when Zayn crashed the backstage Legends party, disrespecting them claiming they were fossils. Mysterio had heard enough but former General Manager of Raw and Hall of Famer Kurt Angle urged them to settle their beef in the ring.
Their match was cut short as Zayn the cowardly heel decided to flee, however Angle, RVD, and Sgt. Slaughter forced him back in the ring. Mysterio won the contest paying homage to RVD, by utilizing his five-star frog splash to get the victory.
On this week’s Raw the plot thickened as both competitors were included in the five-man gauntlet match to determine AJ Style’s challenger for the United States Championship at SummerSlam.
Mysterio and Cesaro were the first two participants, and man did they put on a wrestling clinic. There were so many reversals and counters, Mysterio outlasted The Swiss Cyborg and Zayn wasted no time pouncing on the weakened veteran. If you went to the restroom when the bell rang, you most-likely missed the match. It was over that quick.

It seemed very odd to me because WWE typically books these multi-man elimination matches, so that superstars are allowed to show the WWE Universe what they can bring to the table. This has not been the case, which has led me to believe that perhaps Mysterio and Zayn could be entered into a feud sooner rather than later.
If it does indeed happen, it will be after SummerSlam since Zayn will face WWE’s Dutch Destroyer Aleister Black. At this time we’re uncertain of The Master of the 619’s status for The Biggest Party of the Summer, but I wouldn’t be surprised if somehow he could cost his rival his match with Black.
Things would escalate from further as soon as Zayn delivers a scathing promo about Mysterio’s family and heritage, the WWE veteran would be incensed and both rivals would be ready to tear each other apart.
You're terrible. Xoxo -SZ https://t.co/06iFUQxCXO

That’s what I see happening here maybe I’m wrong, but I would love to see this dream feud take place over the next few months. Both superstars will bring their A game, and create magic with high-octane action!
