Seth Rollins to host Rey Mysterio’s retirement ceremony

Several weeks ago, Rey Mysterio was the victim of a gruesome attack by Seth Rollins, which left the masked marvel with a critical eye injury. Apparently, the effects of that injury may be forcing Mysterio to hang up his boots, as there will be a retirement ceremony for him Monday on Raw.

However, the ceremony is being hosted by the man who put him out of action. Just what does The Monday Night Messiah have in store for Mysterio, and what motives could he have for hosting this ceremony?

United States Champion Apollo Crews to defend against an opponent of his choice

Newly crowned United States Champion Apollo Crews is not going to be taking a breather after winning the title. This week on Raw, Crews will defend his title against an opponent of his choosing.

Who will Crews select? Will they play spoiler for the new champion?
