Rey Mysterio’s already obtained a luchador lined as much as dethrone Soiled Dom

WWE was in Orlando final night time (July 21) for SmackDown, and Orlando is principally the corporate’s second headquarters since that’s the place the Efficiency Heart which homes their developmental program is positioned. NXT runs out of the PC, which is why it wasn’t shocking to see a number of expertise from Tuesday nights on the blue model this week.

Dominik Mysterio isn’t formally a member of the NXT roster. However he and the remainder of Judgment Day have been regulars on the present for weeks, producing sturdy scores as WWE is once more tying all its reveals extra carefully collectively whereas negotiating their subsequent spherical of media rights contracts. It led to Soiled Dom profitable his first singles title on NXT this previous Tuesday, taking the North American championship from Wes Lee.

Put all of it collectively, and also you get Dom on SmackDown defending his newly received belt in opposition to Butch.

It took an look by Fairly Lethal (nonetheless feuding with Butch & Brawling Brutes regardless of Elton Prince’s harm), which supplied cowl for Dom’s Mami Rhea Ripley to intervene on his behalf, however the Soiled One was profitable in his first title protection.

However the NXT subject journey to Amway Heart could have set one thing in movement that can finish Mysterio’s reign earlier than too lengthy. We realized in a “Digital Unique” clip that Dom’s Corridor of Fame father Rey met backstage with one in every of WWE’s marquee signings of the previous 12 months, Dragon Lee. After the 2 luchadors paid their respects to at least one one other, Lee presents to show the youthful Mysterio a lesson in respect. Rey’s down, and even says he needs to be there when the previous ROH & New Japan titleholder takes the North American belt from his son.

Previous to Dom profitable it, Mustafa Ali was speculated to problem for the North American belt at Nice American Bash subsequent Sunday (July 30). If that occurs, and if he wins (or Ripley, Finn Bálor, and/or Damian Priest assist him win), Dragon Lee is asking his shot — and namedropping an icon to make it occur.

Rey’s obtained a Common title shot tonight in Mexico Metropolis, and a showdown with one other rising Latino star for a United States championship match subsequent Friday. We’re certain he’ll nonetheless be capable to discover time to plan a visit to Orlando to observe Dragon Lee tackle his ingrate son, although.
