Dominik Mysterio is having a hard time without his Mami. Rhea Ripley is Mysterio’s human shield who protects him from any harm that befalls him in WWE. However, with Nia Jax attacking the Women’s World Champion on the Sept. 11 edition of Raw, the latter was not to be seen anywhere in WWE this week.

This week, Mysterio went on a singles match against Carmelo Hayes on NXT and won it. During the ending moments of the match, Hayes sent Dom flying onto the announcer’s desk, thus hitting Ilja Dragunov. Mysterio then tossed Melo into Dragunov and then even slapped the latter before retreating to the ring.

This made Dragunov angry, and he attacked Mysterio, causing the match to end via DQ. He went on to deliver a Torpedo Moskau on Mysterio, but Dom dodged the move, hitting Hayes instead. Mysterio tried to flee the scene, but Dragon Lee caught him from behind and super-kicked him in the face.

A day before, Mysterio became a victim of several beatings on NXT, he had to endure embarrassment at the hands of Cody Rhodes on Raw. The two stars were booked to have a match on WWE’s flagship show this week. But before the match, Mysterio decided to insult his opponent for the night.

Rhodes then verbally attacked Mysterio and even claimed that his ‘Mami’ is no longer interested in him and has eyes for Jey Uso now. This left Dom red-faced in the middle of the ring. Well, this was not enough. Rhodes pinned Mysterio on Raw and added more insult to the injury.
