Dominik Mysterio, also known as ‘Dirty’ Dom, had just retained his NXT North American Championship at the GAB event.

Usually, such a moment would be celebrated with handshakes and hugs, especially when a legend like Shawn Michaels is present to offer his congratulations. However, Mysterio and his Judgment Day partner, Rhea Ripley, chose to respond differently.

Instead of acknowledging Michaels’ praise, the duo ignored the WWE Hall of Famer. Ripley even went as far as to push Michaels out of the way, a move that has since been described as sassy.

Michaels, taken aback by the pair’s actions, shouted after them, “Your daddy should have spanked your ass as a kid.”
