Yes, it is still possible to file a Motion to Set Aside Default Judgment based on the failure of service of the original lawsuit. And that is what you will need to do before you can seek to defend against the domestication of the judgment in your state.
You are going to need to file an answer to the judgment filing in your state and deny service in the underlying action---but then to win, you will have to get an order in the original state setting aside the judgment. When you have that you can seek the dismissal of the domestication application in your state. It is however, not possible to defeat the application for domestication in your state without also dealing with the judgment itself in the originating state.
