Dominik Mysterio & Rhea Ripley Set To Kick Off NXT This Week

Rhea Ripley Dominik Mysterio Night of Champions

Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley have plans Tuesday night.

It was announced on X that the power couple of The Judgment Day will start the festivities off on Tuesday’s NXT, just a week after Mysterio ended up becoming the North American Champion in defeating Wes Lee for the title.

“BREAKING: After last week’s shocking win, new NXT North American Champion “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio and Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley will KICK OFF #WWENXT TOMORROW!”

On a recent episode of Busted Open Radio, Tommy Dreamer expressed how savvy it was from a business perspective to make Mysterio hold gold from the black and gold brand.

“I think it was a great decision for him to be the champion cause it’s going to get even more heat and it’s going to get even more recognition for a brand that’s awesome. And that brand is NXT.”

Dominik Mysterio Has Been A Title Defender

Say what you will about his questionable morales or past brushes with the law, Dominik Mysterio has defended his new title on every televised show he’s been on since winning the title. Granted, that would only be SmackDown at this moment, but he did defeat Butch in singles action.

Over the weekend, both Mysterios ended up in Mexico City as Dom had major heat with the crowd while Rey Mysterio faced Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Championship in the main event. WWE’s two night stay south of the border this weekend was an extremely beneficial stay as it broke new attendance records in Mexico.
