Rhea Ripley has strong praise for Dominik Mysterio.
Dominik Mysterio has turned himself into the biggest heel in WWE during 2023 thanks to his feud with his father Rey Mysterio and his relationship with Rhea Ripley. Whenever he grabs the microphone, he is almost immediately drowned out by boos.
Speaking to Phil Sturm on Under The Ring, Ripley was asked about the potential of Dominik.
"The sky is the limit for Dom, to be completely honest. I know a lot of fans don't agree and they don't see much in him, which aggravates them, but they're very wrong. For Dom, just seeing how much he's grown over the past few months is so insane. His confidence levels have skyrocketed. He knows exactly what he's doing going out there. Even when he's not sure, he still goes out there and absolutely kills it. Hearing the kind of reaction that he gets, especially going from being in a tag team with Rey, and his dad having the limelight and being the superstar in that relationship, to now him going out there and he can go out there by himself and get the loudest reaction in any company. Being out there while he gets boo'd is quite deafening. It's really cool to hear. I can't even hear what he's saying most of the time when he's talking next to me on a microphone, that's how loud the crowd can be and I've never heard someone get such a reaction so quickly like Dom does. The only time I've heard a loud reaction like that is WrestleMania or a PLE. It's very rare that I hear the crowd get that loud for someone, especially so quickly. He doesn't even have to say anything. It makes me very proud knowing how much he's grown. I get emotional every now and again because he's come so far and it's cool to be a part of," said Rhea.
Dominik is set for a big match against Cody Rhodes at WWE Money in the Bank.
