Dominik Mysterio is the current WWE NXT North American Champion. Dominik has wrestled 95 matches in 2023 alone. Ever since he joined The Judgement Day, his wrestling career has transformed completely.
Shawn Michaels recently was on Cheap Heat with Peter Rosenberg podcast, where he talked about Dominik Mysterio. Shawn feels Dominik Mysterio is MVP of WWE in 2023.
“Well, of course, I can remember the first time and just so early on, thinking to myself like, ‘Rey, he’s already taller than you are [laughs], such a young age. But Dom has, to me, Dominik Mysterio, MVP of the WWE this year. Every time he comes here, I look at him as the hardest-working man in the show business. He has just been an ironman for us. I can’t speak to what he does on the main roster, but he has done just everything we have asked of him. He’s done it professionally, he’s done it admirably, done it to the best of his ability.
“Yes, do I think it’s been to his advantage because a lot was put on him early, and he probably didn’t get the opportunity to develop behind the scenes as much as other people have, and he had to do it out there in front of the world and probably got judged harshly for it, but I’m telling you, I have nothing but admiration for that man. He has been a stud for us. I think from a company standpoint, everybody would agree with me. He got a lot put on him early, and I think he has grown a lot in this last year. I think he’s become a hell of a performer as well, when everything is said and done. But it’s hard for me not to admire the young man who’s worked so hard for us,” (H/T: Fightful)
