Two nights after, on the post-pay-per-view episode of Monday Night Raw, Dominik cemented his heel turn by joining Judgement Day.
Latest news on Dominik Mysterio & Rhea Ripley
Before joining Judgement Day after turning heel, WWE had Ripley consistently attacking Mysterio on Monday Night Raw.
And now that he’s part of the faction, WWE has continued to tell the story of the rather strange relationship between Rhea and Dominik.
That continued during last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw, with Dominik calling Rhea “mummy” during a strange backstage promo.
You can see the clip of the rather weird backstage interaction in the embedded tweet below…

Dominik has been in the news for a few reasons lately, not just because of the weird line he said to Rhea during last night’s show.
Also during last night’s episode, Mysterio got one of the best heel reactions in recent WWE history, which you can read more about by clicking here.
Dominik generated such a nuclear reaction from the fans in California that the crowd drowned out his promo with a chorus of loud boos.
WWE’s latest plans for Dominik Mysterio
There’s no word on what Triple H is planning for Dominik in WWE now that he’s separated from his father and turned heel.
At the moment, WWE is telling the story that Rey Mysterio doesn’t want to fight his son, despite his being attacked by him earlier this month.
However, it’s been expected for a number of years now that Dom and Rey will have a match at some point soon with Triple H potentially even stretching it out until WrestleMania 39 in April 2023.
Regardless of what WWE is planning for Dominik for both the long and short term, you cannot deny that the 25-year-old is on the run of his career right now.
Many fans called for Dominik to turn heel for several months now, with the former SmackDown Tag Team Champion previously being quite stagnant as a babyface while teaming his father, at least in the eyes of a portion of vocal fans.
