Mysterio vs. Lee

‘Dirty’ Dominik Mysterio is currently in his second run with the NXT North American Championship, with his current reign being over 57 days. At NXT Deadline on Saturday, December 9, Mysterio defends the gold against the man he took the title from in a high-stakes rematch.

Wes Lee won the NXT North American Championship at the 2022 Halloween Havoc special before going on to have the longest reign in the title’s history, with him holding the gold for 269 days. Since Mysterio took the championship from him in July, Lee has been looking to work his way back into the champions’ circle.

On the November 28 edition of NXT, Lee defeated three former titleholders; namely Bronson Reed, Cameron Grimes, and Johnny Gargano to once again earn a shot at the title. Following his victory, the match-up between Mysterio and Lee was confirmed to take place at Deadline.
