Soon afterwards, Baron Corbin applied a hold on Rey Mysterio. However, the latter broke free and tagged in Dominik. From this point onwards, Dominik fended off both Zayn and Corbin by himself.

However, he couldn’t hold them off for too long. At the end of the match, Sami attacked Dominik with a kick and pinned him to secure the victory for himself and Corbin.

The winners have earned a spot at the upcoming WWE Elimination Chamber.

Sami Zayn is one step closer to his wish

Before the match started, Sami Zayn was ranting about earning a title shot. If he secures the win at Elimination Chamber, he will fight Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship title that night.

Considering WWE has already booked Kevin Owens for Elimination Chamber, the two friends are set to take center stage at the pay-per-view.

Both of them want the title shot more than anybody else who will step inside the ring at Elimination Chamber.

What is next for Dominik Mysterio?

Dominik Mysterio is one of the most promising young talents on WWE’s main roster. More often than not, WWE has shown its faith in the young Superstar’s talents.

In fact, he has already been inside the ring with Brock Lesnar and earned his respect following the match.

It is possible that something major is in the books for Dominik Mysterio in the coming future.

In fact, he might even turn heel soon considering he has already started ignoring his father’s [Rey Mysterio] advice. Recently, he attacked Corbin after Rey Mysterio asked him not to.
