Rhea Ripley has always been very protective of her ‘Dom Dom’. Be it when the crowd boo’s him and overpowers his voice, or when she stood in between him and Cody Rhodes after he delivered a cheap slap to ‘The American Nightmare’.

Ripley hates anybody who tries to belittle Dominik Mysterio. So when WWE posted a video of Rey Mysterio spanking Dominik, that too on Father’s Day, it infuriated Ripley!

WWE kept up the Father’s Day spirit by sharing adorable pictures of wrestlers with their kids. With lovable moments ranging from Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins sharing a smoothie with his daughter to Edge hugging his daughters. But obviously, WWE had to add some fun to the occasion, and for that they shared a video of Rey Mysterio brutally spanking Dominik Mysterio at the first-ever Father’s Day Street Fight that took place on Sunday.

She simply wrote, “Delete this”. And fans obviously didn’t lose a chance to tease ‘MAMI’ with her getting over 550 replies. One fan replied, “Naw mami dom needs to learn to respect his daddy”.

Dominik has one more chance to gain fans’ respect

Dominik very cheekily slapped ‘The American Nightmare’ and stood behind ‘MAMI’ after Rhodes called him Rey Mysterio’s biggest mistake. In retaliation, Rhodes set up a match between him and ‘Dom Dom’ at MITB to get some well-deserved payback.

To date, the only singles match that Dominik has ever won in the WWE has been against AJ Styles. So it’s going to be interesting to see how Dominik uses this opportunity considering Rhodes left arm was already injured by the ‘Beast Incarnate’ Brock Lesnar. Should ‘Mami’ and The Judgement Day be banned from ringside for this bout? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
