WWE Hints At The Split Of A Popular Couple

One of the title matches leading up to WrestleMania weekend will feature two of the roster’s most popular wrestlers, and there appear to be hints of a turn.

Legado del Fantasma and the LWO faced off this week on WWE Friday Night SmackDown in a promo segment aimed at setting up a tag team match for WrestleMania.

Rey Mysterio proposed a match between himself and a partner of his choosing against Santos Escobar and Dominik Mysterio. It appeared that Rey was going to partner with Carlito, but he instead chose Dragon Lee, who was introduced as the LWO’s newest member. The camera zoomed in on Carlito’s face before Rey made his announcement, so keep an eye out for a potential turn there.

Later in the show, during a backstage segment, The Judgment Day expressed displeasure with Dominik Mysterio for going out to the ring without informing Rhea Ripley or the rest of the group. Ripley has received massive babyface reactions on television and at live events, prompting speculation of a babyface turn at WrestleMania or shortly thereafter.

It also appears that the Rhea/Dominik split will occur soon.

One thing to keep in mind is that they teased this in July, so the split may not happen immediately.
