In the world of WWE, it’s not just the action inside the ring that captivates fans; it’s also the unexpected moments that occur backstage. The August 28 episode of RAW provided one such moment, and it involved Rhea Ripley, Dominik Mysterio, and Raquel Rodriguez.
The stage was set for an intense showdown between Ripley and Rodriguez, with their feud reaching new heights in the lead-up to WWE Payback. During the show, Ripley delivered a scathing promo, taking jabs at Rodriguez, and even Dominik Mysterio joined in the fun with his hilarious miming.
However, tensions escalated quickly, leading to an explosive backstage encounter. Rodriguez unleashed her fury on the current Women’s World Champion, leaving both Ripley and Mysterio in shock. This unexpected twist left the WWE Universe wondering what exactly happened behind the scenes.
What truly stood out in this backstage drama was Dominik Mysterio’s unique response to Rodriguez’s aggression. Rather than backing down, he appeared to put a chokehold on Rodriguez. But here’s the twist—it was all in good humor, as Dominik was using a cutout of the female superstar.
