Dominik Mysterio, a rising WWE Superstar, recently participated in WrestleMania 39, where he faced his father, Rey Mysterio, in a highly anticipated showdown. The match ended with Bad Bunny, the famous musician, interfering and causing Dominik to lose.
Bad Bunny hopped over the barricade and removed a chain from Dominik's hand just as he was about to use it against his father. Rey Mysterio took advantage of the distraction and defeated his son on WWE's grandest stage. During the same weekend, Rhea Ripley emerged as the only winner from The Judgment Day faction, as her teammate Finn Balor lost to Edge in a brutal Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania.
In a recent online interaction, WWE on Fox's official Twitter account asked fans to name their Mount Rushmore for women's wrestling. Dominik Mysterio, a member of The Judgment Day faction, responded with a humorous list that featured Rhea Ripley, whom he affectionately calls "Mami" four times.
Additionally, he gave an honorable mention to WWE Hall of Famer Torrie Wilson. The wrestling community reacted to Dominik's amusing list, with many speculating that Ripley might be jealous of the attention given to Torrie Wilson.
Family Ties in Mysterio-Ripley Saga
Dominik Mysterio has repeatedly claimed that Rhea Ripley is a part of his family and stated that he would have no issue with her facing off against his mother and sister. Despite challenging his father, Rey Mysterio, several times for a match at WrestleMania, the elder Mysterio initially declined.
However, when Dominik was traded from RAW to SmackDown in exchange for Baron Corbin and JBL, Rey could no longer avoid The Judgment Day faction. He finally accepted Dominik's challenge after his son disrespected his wife and daughter during a recent episode of SmackDown.
In an interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling's Emily Mae ahead of the Royal Rumble in January, Dominik discussed his relationship with Rhea Ripley and asserted that she was a part of his family. He also mentioned that if any member of his family were to confront Ripley, she would have the right to take action as she sees fit.
Dominik referred to Ripley's previous encounters with other WWE Superstars, such as Solo Sikoa, Luke Gallows, and Tozawa, as examples of her fearlessness and capability to stand up to anyone. With great interest, the WWE Universe continues to watch the evolving dynamic between Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley.
As their partnership strengthens and their careers advance, fans eagerly anticipate the future for these two talented Superstars.
