In the electrifying world of WWE, every move, every moniker holds significance, resonating with fans and legends alike. Dominik Mysterio, the rising star, recently earned himself a new nickname, but there’s a legend who’s not applauding the change. None other than the esteemed wrestling figure, Dutch Mantell, has thrown down the gauntlet, expressing his displeasure in an exclusive conversation.
In an episode of the high-octane show Smack Talk, Dutch Mantell, a revered name in the wrestling realm, shifted gears from discussing Money in the Bank and Roman Reigns to address his qualms with Dominik Mysterio’s newly acquired “Dirty” nickname. For Mantell, this moniker held a special place, one he feels WWE has swiped from him.

With a distinctive blend of candor and wit, Mantell questioned why WWE didn’t deem names like “Dirty” Kevin for Kevin Owens, “Dirty” Triple H for the Game, or even “Dirty” Vince for the Chairman as fitting alternatives.

“Why don’t they call Kevin Owens ‘Dirty’ Kevin? What about ‘Dirty’ Triple H? What about that? ‘Dirty’ Vince?”
Dominik Mysterio, now fondly addressed as “Dirty Dom,” claimed his new nickname during a charged episode of Monday Night RAW on June 3, 2023. Rhea Ripley’s mention of the moniker was echoed by RAW commentator Corey Graves during Dominik’s showdown against Seth Rollins on the same night. With the new title in tow, Dominik later clinched the NXT North American Championship.
Mantell’s Call to Action – A Battle Cry for Fans
But Mantell wasn’t content with just voicing his concern. The seasoned veteran dug deeper into the origins of the “Dirty” nickname, passionately urging WWE enthusiasts to rally behind him in protest against what he deemed a ‘rip-off.’ He called upon fans to ‘boycott’ WWE, urging them to make their voices heard on WWE.com.
“The ‘Dirty’, don’t forget that – that was my addition to it. And I think the [WWE] fans… I want everybody listening to this to go to WWE.com and voice your displeasure for ripping me off and my name and tell them that you’ll never watch a WWE pay-per-view again until the next one!”
In a universe where every name carries stories and legacies, the “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio saga has now seen Dutch Mantell throw his hat into the ring, fueling a unique brand of wrestling narrative that bridges generations and ignites passionate responses from fans around the globe. The battle for a name, it seems, is just as fierce and gripping as the battles within the squared circle.
