Rhea Ripley helped Dominik Mysterio in retaining his title tonight at NXT: The Great American Bash. When they went backstage after the match, they didn’t shake hands with Shawn Michaels, the head of NXT. Ripley has talked about the incident.
Mysterio is still the champion of NXT North America. He won against Wes Lee and Mustafa Ali to keep the title. Ripley played a big part in the match, like when she slammed Lee with a move called Riptide through a table where the commentators sit. People are talking a lot about their disrespectful behavior towards HBK on social media.

Since Dominik Mysterio is still the champion, both he and Rhea Ripley will keep appearing on Tuesday nights regularly. This shows how powerful The Judgment Day’s influence is across WWE.
Ripley and Dominik are champions at present, and Finn Balor and Damien Priest want to be a part of the SummerSlam. Balor will soon face Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship, and Priest has the Money in the Bank briefcase.
