Rey Mysterio’s son Dominik puts in amazing performance on WWE debut in losing effort to Seth Rollins at SummerSlam
Dominik Mysterio did his family’s legacy proud on his WWE debut against Seth Rollins.
The 23 year old made his professional wrestling debut at WWE’s second biggest show of the year and he took on one of WWE’s true elite talents.
The son of Rey Mysterio did his father proud after pushing Rollins to the limit in a 22 minute contest. He hit his dad’s 619 and Eddie Guerrero’s Frog Splash during the match and he wasn’t shy about using weapons during the match either.
Rollins ultimately came out on top over the young starlet after he landed the curb stomp and he was in control for the majority of the affair.
However, fans have been lavishing praise on the performance of Dominik, especially seeing as it was his first-ever wrestling match:
Clearly it’s in his blood and he looked an absolute natural in there.
Dominik started at WWE’s Performance Center in Orlando in January, but the Covid-19 global pandemic and WWE’s need to use that for TV production mean he hasn’t had the easiest maiden year.
Prior to that, he had spent time training with Lance Storm in Canada and, of course, his father.
Rey Mysterio only returned to TV last week for the first time since having his eye extracted by Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules.
Mysterio was said to be in talks with WWE at the time over a new deal and even fielded offers from AEW during that time.
It’s since been reported that Mysterio has agreed in principle a new three-year deal after AEW couldn’t make him a higher offer.
WWE said his eye had been taken out, but eventually they updated everyone saying doctors had managed to save his eye.
That’s how this whole matchup came about for Dominik. He was trying to get revenge for what Rollins had done to his father and the pair had exchanged kendo stick attacks in recent weeks.
It’s not clear what Dominik’s next move is in WWE. He may well eventually start working in NXT, but it seems as though working by his father’s side is serving him well at the moment.
