WWE RAW 7/8/19
Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre are talking with a food vendor about possibly being Roman Reigns’ partner.
Rey Mysterio makes his entrance. Mysterio says he’ll keep it short and simple. 6 weeks ago, he stood here with his arm in a sling and did the hardest thing he’s ever done in his career: relinquish the WWE United States Championship. They said it would be impossible to come back early, but he rehabbed harder and became hungrier. He beat the doctor’s prediction. Mysterio says he is back and is ready to go. Mysterio is issuing an open challenge to anyone in the back who is listening.
Bobby Lashley responds to the challenge. The commentators are stunned he is able to come back so quickly after what happened last week.
