Rey Mysterio Supports Dragon Lee in WWE NXT Title Showdown Against Dominik

During the electrifying Sunday night showdown at "NXT's" Great American Bash, the North American Champion Dominik Mysterio demonstrated his prowess by successfully defending his title against formidable contenders, former champion Wes Lee and the skilled Mustafa Ali.

However, this victory was not achieved alone, as WWE Women's World Champion Rhea Ripley provided valuable support to help him retain his coveted title. Following the intense match, Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley stirred up some controversy, notably when "Dirty" Dom declined to shake hands with the esteemed Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative, Shawn Michaels.

The fiery duo did not stop there as they berated Dragon Lee, further escalating tensions in the NXT arena. In a heated exchange, Ripley labeled Lee as a "wannabe Rey Mysterio," Dominik took a jab at Lee's appearance, accusing him of lacking originality by resembling his father and boldly proclaiming himself as the true original.

Adding fuel to the fire, Tuesday's episode of "NXT" revealed that Dragon Lee would be granted an opportunity to challenge Dominik for the North American Title. Staying true to her fierce allegiance to Dominik, Ripley asserted that she would stand firmly by "Dirty" Dom's corner during the impending championship match.

Unfazed by the provocation, Dragon Lee made an unexpected announcement that would undoubtedly level the playing field – he secured the support of none other than the legendary Rey Mysterio, Dominik's father. In a heartfelt video message, Rey Mysterio expressed his deep admiration for Dragon Lee, acknowledging him as the future of Lucha Libre.

Clearly intent on witnessing this exciting encounter firsthand, Rey confidently claimed the "best seat in the house" and eagerly anticipated the moment when Dragon Lee would seize the North American Title from Dominik's grasp.

Since July 18, Dominik Mysterio has held the North American Championship, marking his first reign as a singles champion. His remarkable journey in the wrestling world also included a victorious run with the "SmackDown" Tag Team Championship alongside his iconic father in 2021.

As the stage is set for an epic showdown between Dominik Mysterio and Dragon Lee, the NXT universe braces for an intense clash of skills, ambition, and pride.
