WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley was a recent guest on Under The Ring with Phil Strum to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked to describe how good Dominik can be, Ripley stated that the sky is the limit and made it clear how proud she is of Mysterio’s growth over the past few months.
“The sky’s the limit for Dom, to be completely honest,” Rhea Ripley said. “I know a lot of fans don’t agree, and they don’t see much in him, which aggravates them, but they’re very, very wrong. For Dom, just seeing how much he’s grown over the past few months is so insane. His confidence levels have just skyrocketed. He knows exactly what he’s doing going out there.
“Even when he’s not sure, he still goes out there, and he absolutely kills it. Hearing the kind of reaction that he gets, especially going from being in a tag team with Rey and his dad sort of 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 booed, he’s quite deafening. It’s real cool to hear. I can’t even hear what he’s saying when he’s talking next to me on a microphone. That’s how loud the crowd can be. I’ve never heard someone get such a reaction so quickly as well like Dom does. The only time I’ve heard a loud reaction like that is obviously at 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. So it makes me very proud, knowing how much he’s grown, and I get emotional every now and then because he’s come so far, and it’s been real cool to be a part of.”
