Controversy and anticipation swirl around Dominik Mysterio's recent North American Championship triumph on "WWE NXT," captivating fans who continue to engage in lively debates on social media. Following the electrifying event, Mysterio and Rhea Ripley, his staunch supporter, took center stage in a backstage interview where they exuded confidence and reveled in their victory, while setting their sights on even greater accomplishments.
Ripley, exuding pride, spoke highly of Mysterio, declaring, "You're talking to greatness here. You're talking to my Latino Heat, 'Dirty Dom' himself. He's already surpassed his father, that deadbeat dad, and he's just gonna keep growing and growing, and he's gonna take over this business.
Because he's part of the Judgment Day, and the Judgment Day, we run all of the WWE."
Mysterio Contemplates Future NXT Transition
Notably, despite being associated with the "WWE Raw" brand, Mysterio hinted at a potential shift to the "NXT" brand in the future, following his impressive win and an undefeated streak of 2-0 on the developmental platform.
Expressing his gratitude to Ripley, Mysterio concurred with her sentiments, emphasizing his status as the newly crowned NXT North American Champion. "Thank you, Mami," Mysterio graciously acknowledged. "You're definitely correct about all that, and now that I can actually speak and not get interrupted by a bunch of deadbeats and has-beens, I am the new NXT North American Champion, and now that I think about it, I'm 2-0 here in NXT.
Your boy 'Dirty Dom' is undefeated, and with the Judgment Day and Mami by my side, it looks like it's gonna stay that way." Mysterio's victory over Wes Lee potentially paves the way for an exciting title defense against Mustafa Ali, who had previously earned the right to challenge for the coveted "NXT" North American Championship at the upcoming Great American Bash.
Ali wasted no time in responding to Mysterio's triumph, tweeting, "Im gonna beat his ass" earlier on Tuesday. Although WWE has yet to confirm the Mysterio vs. Ali bout, speculation abounds about a potential rematch for Lee, who held the title for an impressive 270-day reign.
As the wrestling world eagerly awaits further developments, the star power and confidence emanating from Mysterio and Ripley following their North American Title win hint at an exhilarating future, potentially marked by intense rivalries and memorable battles within the WWE universe.
