Last week on SmackDown Live, the show closed out with Randy Orton attacking Rey Mysterio, removing his mask in the process. Orton has been harassing Mysterio for quite some time now, as it seemed to all start at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia earlier this month. Mysterio defeated Orton in the first round of the WWE World Cup tournament but was attacked by Orton after the match. Mysterio then went into his next match with The Miz injured and ended up losing as a result.
Now, Orton showed the ultimate sign of disrespect that one can show towards a Lucha Libre star, as he removed Mysterio’s mask to close out last week’s episode of SmackDown Live. Yesterday, Orton shared a photo on Instagram showing that he’s actually traveling with Mysterio’s mask in his luggage:
“Packing for #smackdownlive hmm let’s see I miss anything”
“…. forgot my lucky orange socks. All set.”
