Rey Mysterio brought his daughter to work, and it seemed like a good idea at the time. He didn’t count on his 19-year-old daughter Aalyah hooking up with 32-year-old Murphy. Some fans are making a big deal about the age difference, but that wasn’t an issue backstage.
We previously reported that Vince McMahon has loved Aalyah Mysterio’s work so far. She is not under a WWE contract, and we invite you to read all about why in our exclusive on the matter.
Ringside News has learned that the angle this week where Aalyah declared her love for Murphy was very well received backstage. Overall, everyone involved was given props for how they pulled it off and Vince McMahon was pleased.

We exclusively reported that Bruce Prichard was not at SmackDown this week. Triple H was involved in helping with some segments. Aalyah and Murphy’s big reveal was one segment Triple H had a hand in.
The story is far from over between Aalyah Mysterio and Murphy. This is an angle that they came up with on Raw prior to the WWE Draft. Now it will continue on the blue brand.
