#7. Seth Rollins vs. Dominik Mysterio in a Street Fight (WWE Summerslam 2020)
Last year's Summerslam featured Seth Rollins facing a rookie in his very first matchup. Seth's rivalry with Rey Mysterio spanned several months and got deeply personal. Rollins defeated Mysterio in an Eye For An Eye Match at the Horror Show At Extreme Rules. He blinded the elder Mysterio, which led to Dominik trying to avenge his father.
Dominik got under Seth's skin and challenged Rollins to a match at Summerslam. Rollins and Murphy attacked Dominik in the leadup in a brutal assault that saw the younger Mysterio take 31 kendo stick shots to the back and chest. This made things even more heated and led to the match being made a Street Fight.
This turned out to be a very good contest with both men turning up the physicality and using a lot of weapons in this grudge match. Dominik Mysterio looked great in his first WWE match and showed that the apple didn't fall far from the tree. The two men told a marvelous story with Seth Rollins standing out due to his amazing character work.
From his Rey Mysterio Halloween Havoc 1997 gear to his facial expressions, Seth Rollins was in rare form at Summerslam 2020. This standout bout against a rookie really shined a brighter light on Seth's exceptional Summerslam track record. Although it was ranked the lowest, this was far from a bad match and truly delivered in the spot that it was in.
