As we reported in the Elite section yesterday, Rey Mysterio was pulled from his scheduled signing the morning of the Royal Rumble in San Antonio, Texas just hours before it was to take place and was replaced by Damian Priest and Dominik Mysterio.  

The word yesterday morning was that Mysterio was banged up from his match the night before on Smackdown but was "OK."  It was back and forth as to whether he would perform at the Rumble, where he was slated to shoot an angle with Dominik to help build to a singles match at Wrestlemania.

In the end, they ran an angle where Rey never appeared for his Rumble slot and instead, Dominik was the next competitor, wearing Rey's mask and tearing it up.  The implication was that Dominik had attacked Rey.
