One NXT star was forced to get physical with Dominik Mysterio backstage at Monday Night Raw.
While The Judgment Day often has the numbers advantage in matches, they have Jimmy Uso to thank for Priest and Balor regaining the gold after he super kicked his twin brother in the face which ultimately allowed Finn Balor to pick up the pinfall.
Rhea Ripley had more of a mixed night, picking up a disqualification win over Shayna Baszler when their match was interrupted by Nia Jax, Raquel Rodriguez, and Zoey Stark. Raw General Manager Adam Pearce informed Ripley later in the night that she’d be defending her Women’s World Championship at Crown Jewel against Baszler, Jax, Rodriguez, and Stark in a five-way match.

Frazer challenged Mysterio to a North American Championship match on the 17th of October edition of NXT but Mysterio told him he did not deserve a title shot before things got physical.
