This led to an engaging discussion between the two. The third-generation wrestler said, “Let me ask you this Santos, how long are you gonna keep kissing up to the legendary Rey Mysterio”? Even after Kross puts him to sleep tonight. Escobar replied, “Hey! You need to learn some respect para tu padre {for your father}, I will teach you”. To which junior Mysterio angrily responded, “Yeah! You know in prison, those who didn’t back up what they said got dealt with.”

Karrion Kross did manage to put Rey Mysterio in a Kross Jacket later in the night. This happened due to a blatant interference by Dominik Mysterio after the referee was distracted by Scarlett. This was followed by the latter instigating his father to make a move. Although it looked ever so close, Rey decided otherwise.

The long-term storytelling is bearing fruit for this rivalry and WWE. After months of building it up, it seems like we finally may witness the familial fight settled in the squared circle.
