The encounter between LWO associates Rey Mysterio and Santos Escobar during the July 28 installment of WWE SmackDown took an unexpected turn. The bout concluded prematurely due to a judgment that Mysterio, displaying signs of injury, was unfit to continue competing.
In the aftermath, Escobar disclosed that the masked wrestler encountered a minor concussion during the match, validating earlier reports. During an interview with Steve Fall (for WrestlingNews.co), Escobar shared:
- Latest Update On CM Punk & WWE
- Update On If LA Knight Will Return On Smackdown Tonight
- AEW Star Fully Cleared For Match At WrestleDream
- Former WWE Star Hospitalised With Serious Cardiac Issue
- Major Update On Adam Cole’s Injury
“The show that you got is the show that it was gonna be. I believe that it is important to present a good show and I believe that was the case that night. Rey and I went hard at it. That’s what we agreed upon. We have a very long relationship. You know, we have a bond. And when you have that, you go hard. That’s what happens when you go hard. I’m just glad that he had a small mild concussion. But he came back hard. And then well, you know what happened a couple of weeks after the fact”.
