WWE SummerSlam: Seth Rollins Takes on Dominik with Rey Mysterio Throwback Gear

Seth Rollins and Dominik Mysterio has been one of the better builds heading into WWE SummerSlam as Rollins continues to get into the young Mysterio's head, and now he went for one final mental game with new gear inspired by a fan favorite Rey Mysterio look from years back. Rey Mysterio made an impact with fans during the WCW Halloween Havoc pay-per-view in his match against Eddie Guerrero back in 1997, and it's clear that it's made an impact on Rollins as well as he used this design to really try and get under the Mysterios' skin.

Rollins' big play throughout the build up to his street fight against Dominik Mysterio heading into the SummerSlam pay-per-view has been how he's trying to hurt Rey Mysterio again by hurting his son. His twisted morality has made his eye for an eye match with Rey Mysterio continue beyond its ending as Rollins wants to continue torturing the entire Mysterio family. And this gear was just salt in the wound.

It's funny that Rollins used this gear in particular to mirror as Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero once famously had a ladder match for the custody of Dominik. This was a way for Rollins to highlight the fact that Dominik has been involved in his father's affairs for quite some time, and shows just how much he was thinking about hurting the Mysterios in many ways. What did you think of this throwback gear? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
