Dominik Mysterio breaks character to become a real-life hero for a young WWE fan
WWE Superstar Dominik Mysterio has broken character to become a real-life hero to a young fan.
Dominik Mysterio has become one of the most despised WWE Superstars on the roster since he betrayed his father to join The Judgment Day faction. The NXT North American Champion was scheduled to defend the title against Wes Lee but the popular star had to withdraw from the match due to injury.
Rey Mysterio appeared on this past Tuesday's episode of NXT to inform his son that he would still be defending the title this Saturday at Deadline. The Hall of Famer said his son will be putting the title on the line against Dragon Lee this Saturday, and he will be in the challenger's corner for the match.
An Instagram account for a child named Benji, who is a young WWE fan sick with cancer, shared a heartwarming update this week. The Judgment Day's Dominik Mysterio visited Benji in person as he battles his illness. The Instagram account "Teamsuperbenji" shared a photo of Mysterio with Benji and noted that the NXT North American Champion is a real-life hero to the child.
"This meet up has been 2yrs in the making and it couldn’t have happened at any better time. Thank You @dominik_35 for keeping your promise and being a real life HERO to Benji!," Teamsuperbenji wrote on Instagram.
