WWE Boasts New Extreme Match Where to Win You Have to Take an Eye Out

If you wanted to make things gory this is how you do it. The WWE has committed to a new level of extreme with the next match between Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins meeting an an eye for an eye match. Meaning to win, you have to pull out the opponents eye.

The Horror Show at Extreme Rules added this rule in order to hype up the next match. But is it too much? We’re thinking that it will be more of a cinematic match with special effects than actually pulling out an eye. But it was pointed out to me that you can pull out an eye and have it put back in…

The match will take place on the WWE Network, Sunday, July 19, at 7 ET/4 PT.

The story behind the match is as follows:

Keep Going!

The Monday Night Messiah has tormented the legendary luchador for months and nearly ended Mysterio’s career with a gruesome attack on his eye. With his career in jeopardy, the iconic Superstar watched as his son Dominik got involved to defend his father’s honor, but Dominik found himself in Rollins’ sights as well. With Rollins attempting to replicate the same brutal ocular assault on Dominik, Mysterio promised to get “an eye for an eye” from the devious Superstar.

Can Mysterio achieve the ruthless justice he craves, or will Rollins finish the barbaric attack that set this match in motion?

What do you think? Will it be special effects or are they training to take an eye out safely? Tell us in the comments!
