World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus helped Rey Mysterio fend off Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio

SAN DIEGO – In his first match back in action after nearly a year away, Rey Mysterio teamed with World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus against Mr. Money in the Bank Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio. Plus, Big Show unleashed his giant wrath and AJ leaped into action during a match between her fiancé Daniel Bryan and the monstrous Kane — just three days before the monumental 1,000 episode of Raw.

After a surprise return to Raw SuperShow four days ago — following an injury at the hands of Alberto Del Rio that kept him out of action for almost a year — Rey Mysterio came home to San Diego and to SmackDown. While the city was already a very special place for the former World Champion, it was also the very location where he was put out of action.

The Ultimate Underdog was soon interrupted by The Mexican Aristocrat, who proclaimed Mysterio made a big mistake by coming back and picking a fight with him — before ordering the “little Chihuahua” out of “his ring.” When the masked Superstar refused, Del Rio promised everyone in the sound of his voice that Rey’s comeback would be short.

“Mr. Money in the Bank” Dolph Ziggler joined the party, upset with Del Rio for messing up his plans to cash in the Money in the Bank contract during Sunday’s pay-per-view. However, when both grapplers looked ready to turn their venom on an interrupting Mysterio, Sheamus emerged to welcome Rey back.

As tension built to a boil, Del Rio ducked out on Ziggler, leaving The Showoff to face his formidable foes alone. Though The Great White clocked Ziggler, his bleach blond target managed to escape — with a little help from Vickie Guerrero — before Rey could follow up with the 619.
