Rey Mysterio Returns, Aleister Black's Opponent and Multiple Matches Announced For RAW and Smackdown

Rey Mysterio Returns, Aleister Black's Opponent and Matches Announced For RAW and Smackdown
WWE announced today that Rey Mysterio will return on this Monday's episode of RAW, although they didn't specifically say what his intentions are.

Last time we saw Mysterio on WWE TV was early June when he had to relinquish the WWE US Championship due to a separated left shoulder injury. Samoa Joe is the current WWE US Champion.

WWE has also announced that Shinzuke Nakamura and Finn Balor will meet on this Tuesday's episode of SmackDown. From WWE's description it sounds like a non-title match.

Another match announced by WWE is Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler. The two were tag partners last week, but a mistake cost them the match against Heavy Machinery.

At Extreme Rules, Daniel Bryan and Rowan will defend the WWE SmackDown Tag Titles against The New Day and Heavy Machinery. On Tuesday, the three teams will appear for the first-ever, "SmackDown Tag Team Championship Summit."

Finally, Aleister Black's opponent for Extreme Rules will be revealed. For weeks, Black demanded someone come knock on his door and challenge him, he finally got a challenger, and we'll find out in a few days who that person is.
