Vince McMahon removed Rey Mysterio’s “eye” popping out during taping of WWE Extreme Rules match

As noted earlier, there was a late change made to the Asuka vs. Sasha Banks match last night at WWE Extreme Rules. It turns out that this was not the only change made to the show.

As noted last week, the original plan was for the Seth Rollins vs. Rey Mysterio match to be pre-taped so they could add CGI effects that would show Mysterio’s eye-popping out. Those plans changed.

PWInsider is reporting that the match was taped on Sunday afternoon and there were plans to do something with prosthetic makeup to make it look like Mysterio’s eye popped out.

They did move forward with the prosthetic makeup and they did do something to show Mysterio’s “eye” popping out but that was edited out because McMahon reportedly hated the look of the effect and sequence.

Mysterio still has not signed a new WWE contract but people in the company believe he will be staying and he was booked for the Raw tapings to continue his storyline.
