The final match of the night on WWE Smackdown 1000 featured the return of Rey Mysterio taking on Shinsuke Nakamura in a World Cup qualifying match for the Crown Jewel show that is, as of now, still scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia.
Mysterio got a clean pin on Nakamura after splashing him off the top rope. Rey looked great and hasn’t missed a beat.
The Undertaker’s music played and he walked out while Mysterio was still in the ring. Mysterio was gone as Taker stepped inside the ring. Taker namedropped “Crown Jewel” and that got some boos from the fans in Washington, DC. He said he has three words for DX: “Rest in Peace” and that was the end of the show.
