However, there’s a stipulation that Dominik Mysterio will be absent from ringside during the match. Now it seems that the Women’s World Champion isn’t happy with the absence of Dominik in her next title fight. Hours before the final showdown, Ripley took to her ‘X’ handle to state that she would miss Dominik a little.
Ripley posted a picture of her upcoming match and captioned it as “A little piece of me is gonna miss Dom Dom too…A very little, tiny, microscopic piece“.

Thus, it seems that The Eradicator is concerned with the absence of Dominik Mysterio during her upcoming title bout. Now, it is to be seen if Ripley will be able to defend the title all by herself during the highly awaited rematch.
Why is Dominik Mysterio banned from ringside?
It’s quite shocking that Rhea Ripley has an important match scheduled and her Dom Dom would not be by her side during the match. However, there’s a reason why Mysterio has been banned from ringside during the match.
This is not the first time Rhea will be defending her title against Raquel Rodriguez. Recently, at the latest pay-per-view event, Payback 2023, Rodriguez faced Ripley for the Women’s World Championship.
However, Rhea successfully defeated Raquel at the event to retain her title, and all the thanks go to Dominik Mysterio. The latter’s interference in the match led to Ripley’s win. With that, on RAW following the PLE event, Raquel demanded a fair rematch. WWE official Adam Pearce then made the match official, with Dominik barred from ringside.
That is the reason why Dominik will not be allowed to stay beside his Mami during the match. However, now fans are waiting impatiently to see if Ripley will once again be successful in defeating Raquel or if a new Champion will be crowned. Since both the Superstars are quite unpredictable, anything might happen, but it will only be known once RAW kicks off tonight.
