In a riveting turn of events, WWE's Dominik Mysterio took a lighthearted jab at his "WWE NXT" rival, Nathan Frazer, likening him to the animated supervillain Megamind. The comparison comes as the two superstars prepare for a showdown at next week's Halloween Havoc Night 2, where Mysterio will defend his NXT North American Championship against Frazer.
Frazer threw down the gauntlet for Mysterio in no uncertain terms. "Next week, Night 2 Halloween Havoc, me and you, Dom — for the North American Championship. That is if Mami can loan you back your balls for a week," he declared.
Mysterio's quirky response was to post a GIF of Megamind, the blue-skinned alien antagonist from the 2010 animated film voiced by Will Ferrell, and wrote, "Megamind lookin ass Nathanial Frazer."
WWE has confirmed the highly-anticipated match-up for next week’s event.
Halloween Havoc Night 2 boasts a stacked card featuring title defenses, including "NXT" Champion Ilja Dragunov taking on Carmelo Hayes. Women's Tag Team Champions Chelsea Green and Piper Niven will also face off against Thea Hail and Jacy Jayne.
Additional matches include a Tables, Ladders, and Scares match between The Creed Brothers and Humberto Carrillo and Angel Garza, as well as the NXT Women's Breakout Tournament Finals between Lola Vice and Kelani Jordan.
First Televised Duel
Frazer and Mysterio already exchanged blows during an untelevised segment on the October 16 edition of "WWE Raw." The upcoming duel will mark their first televised one-on-one confrontation.
This will also be Mysterio's first time defending his title on television since regaining it from Trick Williams on October 3. Mysterio has remained active on the live event circuit, successfully defending his title against noteworthy opponents like Ricochet and Sami Zayn.
As both superstars prepare for this pivotal showdown, fans are buzzing with anticipation. Will Mysterio retain his title, or will the Megamind-resembling Frazer snatch it away? One thing's for sure—WWE's Halloween Havoc Night 2 is an event not to be missed.
