The May 29 edition of Monday Night Raw focused on throwing some limelight onto the brand-new World Heavy Champion, Seth Rollins. He kicked off this week’s Monday show and a little later AJ Styles joined him. The two stars exchanged words of respect for each other, but soon The Judgement Day interrupted them.
Fast forward to the closing segment of the night, ‘The Visionary’ teamed up with ‘The Phenomenal One’ against Finn Balor and Dominik Mysterio. During the match, Rollins and Rhea Ripley recreated an iconic Shawn Michaels moment, which is going viral all over social media.
Rhea Ripley mistakes Seth Rollins for Dominik Mysterio
A segment in the match saw the new World Heavyweight Champion slip out of the ring and put his hands over Mami’s shoulder, who thought it was her Dom-Dom. As she turned her head to the right, she saw it was not who she thought and had a hilariously shocking reaction.
A similar thing happened at Survivor Series 2006. During a match, HBK exited the ring to strike a pose with Melina, who mistook him for Johnny Nitro. The team of Shawn Michaels, Triple H, CM Punk, Matt Hardy, and Jeff Hardy defeated the team of Edge, Randy Orton, Mike Knox, Jonny Nitro, and Gregory Helms.

Similarly, fans mentioned on how The Eradicator’s real-life boyfriend, Buddy Mathews, might react to the segment between her and Rollins.
Lol, Buddy’s former Messiah stole her girl!
