Dirty Dom had a Rey Mysterio action figure with a sign. The sign said, “I’m a deadbeat dad.” Dominik has carried immense hate in his heart for his father since betraying him and joining the Judgment Day. Since then, Rey made it clear that if he ever had a match with his son, it would be to teach him a vital lesson.

Since Dom joined the WWE, he has been regarded as an underdog babyface. However, since he teamed with the Judgment Day, he’s been booed by fans. The WWE audience does not let Dom speak when he takes the mic. This has been called out by other wrestlers as well. However, this does not stop the Judgment Day star from doing the shenanigans that earned him the name Dirty Dom.

However, karma could pay him a visit as suggestions surface about a troubled dynamic with Mami.

Dominik could lose his Mami with external forces at play

There have been hints and rumors of multiple stars like Jey Uso and Drew McIntyre hitting on Mami, Rhea Ripley. Despite her not taking any interest in these attempts, there has always been the speculation that Ripley may leave Dominik. While the two continue their on-screen love story, with the inclusion of McIntyre in Judgment Day, there could be some tension between the two.

The wrestling audience is not yet sure what the Women’s champion promised the Scotsman to turn his back on the fans and embrace the dark side. Ripley had also chastised Dominik Mysterio for his shortcomings when he dropped his NXT North American Championship to Trick Williams. Fortunately for him, the 26-year-old secured the gold back almost immediately to enter the good side of his Mami. The Judgment Day is entering a pivotal period in their bid to become the most dominant group in the WWE. Any mistake from the young Mysterio could put him on thin ice with Mami and the other group members.

One take at a time

My passion for professional wrestling began when I saw Kane ripping the Hell in a Cell door off in the iconic 1997 match. I used to enjoy watching WWE re-runs at 5 in the evening when I got home from school. It was sort of a ritual for me.
