In the latest episode of WWE SmackDown, drama reached its peak as Jey Uso made an unexpected appearance, attempting to retaliate against his brother for jeopardizing his chances at the Tag Team Championships the previous week on RAW.
This trespass wasn't without consequences. The WWE management, represented by Nick Aldis, swiftly imposed a $10,000 fine on Jey. In an additional move to underscore the gravity of the situation, both Uso and Adam Pearce were promptly ushered out by security personnel.
Further intensifying the intrigue, Jimmy Uso is rumored to face a similar financial reprimand for his unsanctioned appearance on RAW. Yet, a noticeable absence in this punitive wave is Dominik Mysterio. Last week, Mysterio, a key player of the Judgment Day faction, boldly confronted Aldis on SmackDown.
While he received a physical reprisal in the form of a Stunner, official sanctions were noticeably absent. The oversight has many speculating about Mysterio's upcoming fate, especially after Adam Pearce's ejection. Will Pearce aim to set a precedent by targeting Mysterio on RAW?
Dominik Mysterio Title Dilemma
The North American Championship title currently held by Mysterio adds another layer of complexity.
Though stripping him of the title seems improbable, the whispers in the corridors suggest Mysterio might be obligated to defend it at the imminent Crown Jewel event. As WWE gears up for its Middle Eastern spectacle, it's anticipated that Mysterio will join the roster traveling, especially given Rhea Ripley's title defense and the potential Judgment Day Tag Team Championship defense.
If Mysterio is slated to defend his NXT Championship in Saudi Arabia, it would be a monumental occasion. Yet, this could be viewed as a double-edged sword; while it places him in the annals of history, the risk of losing his coveted title looms large.
The upcoming events promise to be a whirlwind of suspense and action for WWE fans worldwide. As the world watches, will Mysterio rise to the occasion or succumb to the pressures of the grand stage?
