Dominik Mysterio’s transition to NXT has been nothing short of spectacular. The young superstar, having previously thrived as part of The Judgment Day faction, recently clinched his first singles championship, the NXT North American Championship. Since capturing the title, Mysterio has successfully defended it against formidable opponents like Butch, Wes Lee, and Dragon Lee.
However, the wrestling world is now buzzing with excitement after a new challenger emerged on the scene. Mustafa Ali, known in the WWE universe as Adeel Alam, has thrown down the gauntlet and set his sights on the NXT North American title. Ali’s journey to becoming the number one contender reached its pinnacle on the September 5th episode of NXT, where he secured a victory over Dragon Lee, earning him the rightful claim to the championship opportunity.
Taking to Twitter from his official account, Ali boldly declared his intentions, stating, “I’m the number one contender for the North American title. I have been for months. I earned that spot AGAIN tonight on #WWENXT. I want my one-on-one match for that title at #NXTNoMercy.”
Ali’s determination is evident in his pursuit of the NXT North American title, a quest that has been fueled by a longstanding feud with Dominik Mysterio. Their rivalry dates back to July 18th when Mysterio captured the championship from former titleholder Wes Lee in a thrilling triple-threat match, with Dominik pinning Lee to secure the victory.

However, Ali has steadfastly maintained that he was never legitimately defeated for the opportunity to vie for the title. Despite repeated demands for a title match, Mysterio had denied Ali his chance. With his recent win, Ali is now unequivocal about his desire for a one-on-one showdown with Dominik Mysterio at NXT No Mercy.
As the countdown to the highly anticipated event on September 30th at the Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield, California, continues, the wrestling world eagerly awaits the response from Dominik Mysterio and the official confirmation of this thrilling encounter.
