Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara def. Intercontinental Champion The Miz & Cody Rhodes

During their match one week ago, Cody Rhodes tried relentlessly to unmask Sin Cara, an obsession that ultimately cost him the contest.

Prior to his tag team match this week, the grandson of a plumber took things even further, having an artist produce a grotesque caricature of what he claimed Sin Cara looked like under the mask — which he called “Ugly as Sin.”

However, when Sin Cara teamed with Rey Mysterio for the first time ever to take on Rhodes and Intercontinental Champion The Miz, things quickly became about saving face. Seconds after Sin Cara knocked Miz out of the ring, Rhodes trapped the high-flyer outside the ropes, once again attempting to remove his mask. This opened up Mysterio to dial up the 619 on a distracted Rhodes for the win. 

Moments after the bell, the recovered Awesome One tried to attack Mysterio with his championship gold, only to suffer the effects of his adversary’s prized finishing maneuver as well. Is this a sign of things to come, when The Master of the 619 challenges The Miz for the Intercontinental Title at SummerSlam? (MATCH PREVIEW)
