Report: Dominik Dijakovic Being Called Up To WWE Raw

Matt Riddle's not the only one making a move...

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported early Sunday that NXT star Dominik Dijakovic is coming up to Monday Night Raw, though it's not clear when the move will take place. 

WrestleTalk initially reported that Dijakovic was making the move up, but the destination was not clear at the time of the report.

Dijakovic last wrestled on the April 29 episode of NXT, losing to Johnny Gargano. Other than a triple threat match with Keith Lee and Damien Priest that took place on April 1, Dijakovic has been otherwise inactive since the end of February.

The 33-year-old has been with WWE since the summer of 2017, after several years spent in Ring of Honor, and assorted independent promotions. 

Under the name Donovan Dijak, he won ROH's Top Prospect Tournament in 2015. He and Lee earned acclaim for a September 2017 match at PWG's Battle of Los Angeles, which Meltzer rated five stars.

During his time in NXT, Dijakovic took part in the men's War Games match in 2019. He was set to feud with Velveteen Dream for the North American title in 2019, but was instead sidelined for several months with a knee injury.
