The masked icon lost the gruesome clash at The Horror Show, in which the victor was determined by “extracting the eye” of your opponent.
Seth Rollins emerged triumphant over the Master of the 619 but was left puking at ringside as Mysterio’s ‘eyeball’ popped out.
And WWE claimed afterwards that the Mexican highflyer was rushed to hospital and was being treated for a potential globe luxation.
A statement read: “Medical experts were optimistic that if the optic nerve is not severed and there is not too much strain on the blood vessels and nerves that connect the eye to the rest of the head, there’s a chance Mysterio can maintain his vision.”
Medically, globe luxation – the eyeball being displaced from the socket as a result of trauma – is thought to be extremely rare.

In reality, WWE used a small amount of fake blood and a pretend eyeball to pull off Mysterio’s gory injury on Sunday.
It has been a rough few months for the former World Heavyweight Champion after he was thrown from the roof of the company’s HQ in May.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling News Observer, the severity of his latest injury was needed in order to write Mysterio off WWE TV for the foreseeable future.
The future Hall of Famer had been working his storyline with Rollins without a contract and will now be a free agent.
WWE suggesting that doctors may be able to save Mysterio’s eye could be an indication of Vince McMahon’s plans should the 45-year-old ultimately re-sign.
