Dominik Mysterio recently completed one year in The Judgement Day. Dominik joining The Judgement Day was very shocking, he turned on his own father to join the faction.
Dominik Mysterio joining the faction was one of the best decision ever. It wouldn’t be unfair to say that Dominik brought the funny heel persona to The Judgement Day. Dominik not only elevated himself but also played a huge role in elevating Rhea Ripley.
Rhea and Dominik pairing is widely appreciated by fans. Dominik is now the current WWE NXT North American Champion, Rhea Ripley is the current WWE Women’s World Heavyweight Champion.
Finn Balor recently was on The Ringer Wrestling Show podcast, where he talked about Dominik Mysterio. Finn says Dom would be the future of the business.
“For me the biggest surprise was Dominik because he’s kind of completely stepped out, and probably exceeded any expectation that anyone had for his entire career in one year. In one year. Last weekend was the one-year anniversary since he joined the Judgement Day.”
“I feel like he was given kind of a warm reception when he came in because he was the son of Hall of Famer, son of Rey Mysterio. He was kind of like accepted because he was the blood of Rey Mysterio. It was like ‘Ah we appreciate you’re doing this for us. Because we love your dad so much, we’re gonna cheer for you too.’
Once he stepped out from under that tree and started fending for himself, he’s just been a completely different animal. Not only the growth he’s shown, outside of the ring and on his promos and his character work, but his growth inside of the ring has been absolutely monumental for someone who has had very little training, no NXT experience pretty much. Most of his training has been done on the job, on live TV. This kid is the future of the business, in my opinion.” (H/T: SEScoops)
