Dominik Mystery has received amazing reviews since starting his pro wrestling career. It took a lot of hard work before he arrived on WWE television, and that training is now paying off on a weekly basis.
WWE has big plans for Rey Mysterio. Ringside News exclusively reported Vince McMahon’s reaction to Dominik’s SummerSlam match. Fans can now see it for themselves after the company dropped a video of what went on behind the scene at SummerSlam.
While speaking to Instinct Culture, Konnan discussed how Dominik Mysterio got started in pro wrestling. It wasn’t his goal at first as he wanted to pursue football and other interests. The wrestling bug soon bit Dominik in a big way and Konnan could see how Dominik’s seriousness about the business changed as well.
“Just, you know — this is something Rey has been wanting for a long time. So it was like, ‘Bro, you have no idea.’ Because Rey is the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet. And I was like, ‘Bro, you have such a beautiful dad, and the only thing he ever wanted for you to do was to wrestle. And now you’re giving it to him. Because he didn’t decide to wrestle till like, a couple years ago. He wanted to play football and do other stuff. And I said, ‘Okay, so now there’s a lot of pressure on you. People are gonna expect more because you’re Rey Mysterio Jr. The main thing is to train, and stay humble.’”
“So what he did was, he went to Jay Lethal in Florida to train. Then he went to Lance Storm to train. Then he trained with me Phoenix, here in San Diego with his dad and this other guy called B-Boy. And he was just training, and training, and watching tapes. Every time I talked to him you could see he was more serious, and more serious, and working out and watching tapes and asking about matches. And I was like, ‘Okay, this guy is getting the fever. That’s good, that’s real good.’ But my main thing [staying] humble.] And he always tells me, ‘Make sure you keep me humble,’ and I’m like ‘Oh. I will.’”
WWE is positioning Dominik Mysterio to be on the top of the babyface side on the RAW brand. Dominik is great for the demographic as younger viewers seem to be drawn to him. We’ll have to see what’s next for him, but it might not take very long at all for him to achieve huge things in WWE. He’s already off to a great start.
