On this week’s Raw, WWE announced that on next Monday’s show Dominik Mysterio will defend his NXT North American title against Dragon Lee.
It immediately drew a response from Mustafa Ali, who beat Lee in a #1 contender’s match (thanks to guest referee Dirty Dom’s slow and fast counts) for the right to challenge Mysterio for the belt at No Mercy. And seeing as this is the second time something like this has happened, Ali was still talking about it on the Sept. 19 NXT.
The man who’s been campaigning for North American champ reposted that clip on X, and reiterated it’s main points:
Imagine beating someone to become the number one contender and having the loser get a championship before you.
