The current storyline between Dominik Mysterio and SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley has been grabbing headlines for the past few months. A brewing chemistry was catalyzed by Dom’s heel turn at Clash at the Castle in September last year.
The 26-year-old has been a mainstay in WWE programming alongside Mami and the rest of The Judgment Day faction. His on-screen relationship with The Nightmare and the subsequent heel turn has done wonders for him as Dom has turned into arguably one of the hottest acts on television. However, beyond the ring, he is in a relationship with Marie Juliette Virissimo.
The young couple made their relationship public a while back when the former tag team champion professed his love for Marie. In January this year, Marie and Dom got engaged, and the latter shared their love-filled photo on Instagram.
Marie has made her Instagram account private with little to no information about her. According to The Sun, they met at the age of 14 during Spanish class, and she is only three months younger than him. Dominik Mysterio has often credited her for molding him into the man he is today. Moreover, his journey into professional wrestling has also been aided by his high school sweetheart. Her occupation is currently unknown, although there has been speculation that she is a singer.
What did Dominik Mysterio say about Marie Juliette changing his life?
Dominik Mysterio has been associated with the wrestling business throughout his life, thanks to his father, the Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio. His first tryst with the company came in 2005 when he was involved in the ‘custody’ storyline featuring Rey and the late great Eddie Guerrero.
It goes without saying that being involved in the limelight at all times can take away Dom’s private space, and often help is needed to cope with the pressure that comes with the business. In that regard, Marie seems to have been a great support. By The Judgment Day member’s own admission in an Instagram post in 2015, Juliette has been instrumental in shaping his life and has also helped him shape his career.
“4 years ago today was the day my life changed drastically when I met this beautiful girl it was just life-changing and eye-opening, and I was truly blessed to have her in my life yeah, we’ve had our ups and downs, but nothing takes away the love that we have,” he wrote.
Dominik was in action on the latest episode of Raw, where he won against Apollo Crews. As far as Marie’s presence in WWE is concerned, that is yet to happen. However, WWE may take the Dominik-Rhea storyline to the next level and introduce her into the equation in the near future.
