Rey Mysterio expressed that he is proud of Dominik Mysterio for becoming the NXT North American Champion.
During WWE’s The Bump podcast episode this week, Titus O’Neil asked Rey Mysterio if he was proud of his son for winning the NXT North American title. Rey mentioned and clarified that he is proud of his son whenever he achieves something.
Rey also sadly mentioned that the things he has done with the family will not be forgiven. He also said that he would have loved to call Dominik many times after seeing him achieving something, but his actions against his family do not allow him to do so.
Later on, Titus O’Neil mentioned Dominik defending his title on several occasions already in the last week since winning it, and Rey Mysterio stated that he would take the title from his son when Dominik faces him.
Dominik Mysterio and Rey Mysterio’s feud started at WWE Clash At The Castle last year when Dominik turned on him and Edge. Despite his best efforts, Rey was unable to bring his out from Judgment Day. After months of feuding, they finally clashed at WrestleMania 39 where Rey beat Dominik.
Dominik Mysterio won the North American Championship on the July 18 episode of NXT by defeating Wes Lee. Since winning the title, Dominik has successfully defended it two times.
Dominik Mysterio will also defend his NXT North American title at the NXT Great American Bash 2023 event in a triple-threat match against Mustafa Ali and Wes Lee.
