Rey Mysterio Tells NXT Star “You’re Gonna Become A Big Star Here”

Rey Mysterio has told an NXT wrestler that they will be a big star in WWE and wants to see that person beat Dominik Mysterio as well.

It was a big week of victories for the Mysterio family even though they aren’t on the same page these days.

Dominik Mysterio won the NXT North American Title this past Tuesday on NXT TV during his first televised match on the brand. Dominik got the win after The Judgment Day’s Damian Priest & Finn Balor got involved while “Mami” Rhea Ripley hit Wes Lee with the Women’s World Title leading to Dominik getting the cheap pin.

Rey Mysterio got a big victory on Smackdown in Orlando when he won the US Championship Invitational Fatal 4-Way match against Sheamus, LA Knight and Cameron Grimes. Even though the US Champion Austin Theory attacked Rey during the match, Rey came back to get the win.

Thanks to that victory, Rey Mysterio will face his fellow LWO member Santos Escobar next Friday on the July 28th episode of WWE Smackdown. The winner of that match gets a shot that the US Title held by Austin Theory.

Since Smackdown was in Orlando, a lot of NXT wrestlers were shown on the show and in the backstage area. The masked luchador Dragon Lee was among them since he was shown in the crowd with former NXT North American Champion Wes Lee. Dragon Lee debuted in NXT earlier this year.

In a locker room meeting between Rey Mysterio and Dragon Lee that was posted to WWE’s digital channels, the two Latino stars spoke in Spanish for about a minute. Rey went on to tell Dragon in English that “you’re going to be a big star here” in WWE.

Rey Mysterio went on to say that he wants to be there when Dragon Lee fights Dominik Mysterio and takes the NXT North American Title from him.

On Twitter, Dragon Lee shared the video and wrote this:

“Today was certainly an amazing day…@reymysterio thank you for your advice. @DomMysterio35 I have your dad’s permission to dethrone you.”

While WWE has yet to officially promote a match between Dominik Mysterio and rising star Dragon Lee, based on Rey Mysterio saying he wants to be there when Dragon beats Dominik, that seems like the direction that the story will go in the coming weeks.
