Rey Mysterio exudes unwavering confidence as he gears up for the thrilling finals of the United States Championship Invitational on the upcoming WWE SmackDown.
In a sensational display of skill and determination, Mysterio triumphed over fierce competitors LA Knight, Sheamus, and Cameron Grimes in a breathtaking Fatal 4-Way match last week, propelling himself to the coveted finals. This Friday on SmackDown, he will lock horns with his fellow LWO stablemate, Santos Escobar, to determine the number one contender for Austin Theory’s esteemed United States Championship.
During last week’s intense Fatal 4-Way, Rey Mysterio encountered an ambush at ringside as Austin Theory launched a ruthless attack on the LWO leader. But Escobar, already having secured his place in the finals, rushed to Mysterio’s aid, standing firmly in solidarity with his stablemate and thwarting Theory’s nefarious plans.
Speaking candidly on WWE’s The Bump, Mysterio showered praise upon Escobar for his timely intervention and expressed unwavering faith in their LWO brotherhood, asserting that no matter the outcome of their electrifying singles match, LWO will reign supreme.

“Santos’ intervention played a pivotal role in my victory. His actions showcase the true character of Santos Escobar. This Friday will be a fierce and challenging battle for me. It will be the student versus the master. But rest assured, whether in victory or defeat, LWO will rise to the top,” Mysterio proclaimed with conviction.
Rey Mysterio’s seasoned experience and illustrious track record as a two-time United States Champion have not gone unnoticed by the young and talented Austin Theory. As Mysterio pointed out during his appearance on The Bump, Theory’s interference in the Fatal 4-Way might have been driven by a sense of nervousness, knowing he may have to face a ring veteran of Mysterio’s caliber.
“I firmly believe that Austin Theory’s apprehension stems from my experience and my history as a two-time United States Champion. The nerves may be creeping into his mindset,” Mysterio speculated.
Austin Theory, having recently retained the United States Championship by defeating John Cena at WWE WrestleMania 39, now faces the prospect of defending his coveted title against the legendary Rey Mysterio, a challenge that certainly evokes anticipation and intrigue among fans.
As the stakes escalate, the WWE Universe eagerly awaits the epic showdown between mentor and student, with the winner earning a monumental opportunity to challenge for the United States Championship. Will Mysterio’s storied legacy propel him to victory, or will Santos Escobar’s journey lead to a triumphant shot at the title? The answers will be unveiled this Friday night on SmackDown, in what promises to be an unforgettable clash of talent and passion.
