Former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio joined the Monday Night Raw roster as part of this week’s Superstar Shake-up on Monday night. The lucha libre icon interrupted Elias during one of his concert segments, and sent “The Drifter” packing after knocking him off the apron.
Unfortunately, Mysterio didn’t have much time to celebrate his return to the Red Brand. Just as he took to the top turnbuckle to celebrate with the crowd, NXT call-up Lars Sullivan’s music yet. Mysterio did everything he could to try and fend off “The Freak,” but wound up getting hit with a Freak Accident finisher and Sit-out Powerbomb.

Commentators Michael Cole and Corey Graves specified that even though Sullivan appeared on Raw, he could still potentially be assigned to SmackDown Live if he appears on the Blue Brand on Tuesday night. After initially being advertised for the start of 2018 only to be pulled from television after suffering a panic attack, Sullivan finally made his main roster debut the night after WrestleMania 35 by attacking Kurt Angle.
