On tonight’s episode on WWE RAW, Dominik Mysterio was repeatedly hit with a kendo stick on Raw this week and WWE shared photos of the gnarly aftermath. Elsewhere, Randy Orton crossed the line, berating his longtime friend and mentor Ric Flair before punting the two-time WWE Hall of Famer.
After signing the contract to face Dominik Mysterio at SummerSlam, The Monday Night Messiah set out to silence another Mysterio family ally in Humberto Carrillo. Murphy jumped Dominik at ringside right after the bell. The son of Rey Mysterio tried to fight back, but he was stopped when Rollins cracked him with a Kendo stick, then broke the stick across his back.
In a wild brawl that could not be contained by the ring, Kevin Owens brought the fight to The Viper. KO looked to have Orton on the ropes as he went for the Stunner, but Orton countered and connected with an RKO to pick up the victory.
“The Nature Boy” was celebratory after The Viper’s wins, but the party was cut short. Randy Orton declared that the two-time WWE Hall of Famer was a liability to his career and no longer the Ric Flair he knew and looked up to. Orton then dropped Flair with a low blow, took a few steps back, then punted the legendary Superstar in the head. But before The Viper could bask in his handiwork, a furious Drew McIntyre charged to the ring to chase Orton off, perhaps realizing just how sadistic the man he’ll be facing at SummerSlam truly is.
