Sin Cara vs Rey Mysterio

Reported by: Colin Vassallo, on Jul 22, 2011 - 9:32:06 PM

Last Saturday, just one day prior to the Money in the Bank pay-per-view, WWE held one of their supershows in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with both Superstars from RAW and Smackdown participating.

During the show, a battle royal was held and featured the first - and possibly last - encounter between Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio.

As both the masked Superstars wrestled in the ring showing off their athletic abilities, the rest of the wrestlers in the ring took a backseat to observe the showdown.

After jumping and flying around the ring for a bit, The Miz decided that he had enough and threw Sin Cara over the top after sneaking up on him from behind. The crowd booed big time and the Miz responded by taking a bow! Classic!
