Rey Mysterio’s son Dominik has become a mainstay of the main roster and WWE television since making his debut back in 2019. Since then Dominik Mysterio has been featured extensively in various storylines, including a program with Seth Rollins.

Dominik Mysterio would go on to have a singles match against Seth Rollins at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view last year. However, it seems his father wasn’t so sure he was ready for it.

While speaking on Ryan Satin’s Out of Character podcast, Rey Mysterio talked about his son’s match against Seth Rollins at WWE SummerSlam. Mysterio admitted that he thought his son wasn’t prepared for a match of that level but allowed him to make the decision.

“I personally didn’t think he was ready, so I let him make his choice. “I said, ‘Dom, this is what they [WWE’s decision-makers] want to happen. Are you good or do you wanna say no?’ He’s like, ‘Nah, dad, I’m ready, I’ll do it.’ So I was like, ‘Woah.’ You can only imagine the level of nerves and stress I had during that time.”


Dominik Mysterio would end up losing to Seth Rollins in the match but he had an incredible showing as the match turned out to be one of the best on the card that night. Rey and Dominik Mysterio are currently the Smackdown Tag Team Champions and are likely to have a solid reign for a while.
