It is Monday again, and we all have our feelings about Monday… after all, it’s the night of WWE Monday Night Raw! Tonight, Rey Mysterio makes his long-awaited Raw return to team up with Humberto Carrillo against Angel Garza and the now unsuspended WWE United States Champion Andrade! I’m Jordan Huie of the Overtimer here to report on the show with the same full coverage you’ve come to expect! That means you’ll be getting the results from every segment of the show, plus links to recaps moments after they conclude! Not to mention full previews of everything that’s on tap this evening!
We have an usually stacked card tonight for a WWE TV show, atleast it feels that way to me. It’s not every day we come into Raw with four matches announced, among other things. And they all have potential to be really, really good ones as well! On paper, this looks like a great night of wrestling action, so let’s get into it!
Rey Mysterio & Humberto Carrillo vs. Angel Garza & Andrade w/ Zelina Vega
This one goes back a ways, eh? Since December – though Angel did join in a little later – these four have been embroiled in a feud centering around who will be WWE’s Hispanic star of the future. And no seriously, that’s pretty much the premise we’re dealing with. Rey has of course been WWE’s enduring Hispanic star for nearly two decades now in his on-and-off runs, in spite of several attempts to replace him with the likes of Alberto Del Rio, Sin Cara and Kalisto. None have stuck like Rey has, the man just has an uncanny connection to the audience.
But alongside him in this angle are three men who seem to have the potential to take his place. And Rey has done well to champion the future in this storyline. Angel and Humberto are also coming off a truly fantastic Lucha match last week, hopefully opening them up for a chance to do the same here, with Rey and Andrade each making their Raw returns this evening added in. By all rights, there’s no reason this match wouldn’t be fantastic. It oughta be fast paced action with plenty of lucha libre sequences that Raw’s audience has never seen before. As for who wins… could go either way but I’m gonna say Rey & Carrillo get the nod this time, one of them pinning Andrade to setup a future title match, maybe even for Elimination Chamber this Sunday.
