SmackDown Women's Champion Rhea Ripley surprisingly revealed that she barely spoke with Dominik Mysterio before they became an on-screen WWE couple.

In mid-2022, The Judgment Day began feuding with Rey and Dominik Mysterio. The rivalry saw Ripley attacking the younger Mysterio before he later turned on his father and Edge and joined the villainous faction. The Eradicator and Dominik have since become an on-screen couple.

In a recent interview with Michael Fairman, Ripley addressed her relationship with Dominik before they worked together on the storyline. The current SmackDown Women's Champion mentioned that she was unsure if the storyline would work because she and Dominik barely knew each other.

"Once I found out that Dom was on the same page as me, it just clicked. [It worked so well, right?] Yeah, I never thought that it would work, and I don't think Dom thought it would work either, especially because we barely really talked beforehand. It was just like a 'hi' 'bye.' Yeah, I mean we just said 'hello' and 'how are you?' And that's about it. But like being a part of the women's division, I'm so far away from the men's division. But now, I'm a part of The Judgment Day, so I'm more in it with them. So, I get to make all these new friends," she said.

Ripley added:

"But like watch these bonds sort of just grow and it's funny because like Dom and I we're the same age pretty much. I'm one year older than him and that's it. So, like we're very very similar and we're on the same sort of path so it's just been clicking and we're having a lot of fun." [0:39 - 1:24]
