The odd alliance of Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio has been one of the hottest acts on Monday Night RAW in recent memory. Mami and her “Dom Dom” has become the highlight of the flagship show, as part of The Judgment Day faction. Recently, Ripley put Dominik through a grueling training session in an attempt to get him ready for the Royal Rumble match this weekend.
Dominik Mysterio has been under the tutelage of Rhea Ripley, ever since he betrayed his father, Rey Mysterio and Edge at WWE Clash at the Castle. The young Mysterio right after pledged his allegiance to Judgment Day to carve out his own path in WWE.
With Mami being his guiding force and the dark cloud of Judgment Day prevailing over him, Dominik Mysterio is a changed man now. He went from being a hard-working kid to a much darker and more aggressive thug who is out to lay carnage.
Furthermore, Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio recently did some training of their own. In a video posted by WWE on YouTube, Ripley can be seen putting her Dom Dom through an intensive session to get prepare him for the upcoming Royal Rumble match, while focusing on her training as well to win the 30-women over-the-top-rope melee this year.
“Teaching Dominik has been a breeze….He is a very very fast learner…I am actually surprised that Rey did not try more with him, he wasn’t teaching him the ways of the world and how to get better…that’s what we are here for.”
During that same session, the duo took major shots at Dominik Mysterio’s father, Rey Mysterio. Dominik claimed that despite being a past Royal Rumble winner and veteran of the match, Rey never shared any advice with him regarding the match.
” He’s never helped when it comes to the Royal Rumble especially because he is one of the longest lasting wrestlers in there nor he has given me any word of advice about it.”
There have been many speculations that Rhea Ripley is the massive favorite to win the Royal Rumble match. Whereas, this year will mark Dominik Mysterio’s second rumble match appearance after making his debut in the match last year.
