Before Rey Mysterio could come to WWE RAW and speak about his upcoming match at WWE Survivor Series, Paul Heyman appeared on the screen and announced that the upcoming match between his client Brock Lesnar and Rey Mysterio for the WWE Championship title at WWE Survivor Series will be a 'No Holds Barred match'. Heyman revealed that the news of The Beast getting severally injured after the events of RAW a few weeks ago is all fake. He said that he is not someone who offers predictions, but he is the man who delivers spoilers. He said that at WWE Survivor Series, fans will see his client “massacre” Rey Mysterio and the Beast will deliver a beating so heinous that he can’t even convey it in words.

Paul Heyman promised that WWE would have to pull the footage of the match out of history because it will be graphic and violent. He ended the speech saying that “it won’t be a five-second match, it will be a public torture session.” Later in the show, Rey Mysterio was interview by a WWE announcer where the Masked Luchador accepted Heyman’s challenge and revealed that he is ready to face The Beast at Survivor Series.
Two weeks ago, WWE RAW started with Brock Lesnar coming to the ring with advocate Paul Heyman to seek revenge against Rey Mysterio. Paul Heyman threatened Rey Mysterio and vowed that the masked Luchador will get what was coming to him or The Beast would turn everything upside down. After the announcement, the duo went out of the ring to find Rey Mysterio. After a failed search, the duo returned to the stage and confronted the commentary team.
Brock Lesnar delivered an F-5 to commentator Dio Maddin who was trying to protect Jerry "The King" Lawler and in the chaos, Rey Mysterio arrived from behind and attacked Brock Lesnar with a bat. Mysterio kept on targeting Lesnar’s leg and ended the assault by attacking Lesnar with his Championship belt. Mysterio left the ring leaving Lesnar in extreme pain. Mysterio then appeared on the screen and challenged Lesnar for the Championship match, which the champion agreed to.
