- Rey Mysterio lost his eye during a tense Eye for an Eye match at Extreme Rules
- The winner of the match was determined by 'extracting the eye' of the opponent
- WWE confirmed afterwards that Rey was being treated for a potential globe luxation
WWE have delivered an update on Rey Mysterio's eye injury that left him hospitalised during his match with Seth Rollins.
Mysterio had to be rushed to hospital where he was treated for a possible globe luxation.
SunSport reports that the winner of the tense Eye for an Eye match at Extreme Rules was to be determined by 'extracting the eye' of your opponent.
Rollins eventually emerged as winner, triumphing over the Mexican after sickeningly managing to remove Rey's eye.
And nearly a week after the incident, WWE announced the condition of the Master of the 619 was improving by the day.
"His optic nerve is intact, completely secured and back in its socket. A timeline for Mysterio’s return to the ring is unknown at this time," a WWE statement said.
Mysterio went on to confirm his state is indeed improving in a follow up response to WWE's statement.
"Appreciate you all so much for your concerns, taking it one day at a time," he tweeted.
It was previously thought the match would be Mysterio's last in the WWE, but the masked wrestler has since announced discussions are ongoing over a new deal.
The development came after it was reported that the three-time world champion was looking to retire and to let his son Dominic continue with his legacy.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Nigerian-born America wrestler Sesugh Uhaa popularly known as Apollo Crews has clinched the United States Championship on Monday Night Raw.
The 32-year-old heavily built fighter dethroned former champion Andrade to win his first-ever title in the WWE rings.
Crews gained momentum in the fight after showing off a few skills including a moonsault and a standing shooting star press for the victory.
Legit.ng also reported that WWE Money in the Bank 2020 results sprang lots of surprises as championship opportunities have been given to two underdogs in the men and women's division.
For the first time in their respective careers, Otis and Asuka representing SmackDown won their Money in the Bank ladder matches and have the opportunity in cashing in their briefcases for a title shot.
Six men and women contested in the main event of the evening from the ground floor of the WWE headquarters to the roof to retrieve their contracts.
