Dominik Mysterio debuted for the WWE Universe without a mask, but he was inserted into a storyline with his father right off the bat. Dominik was praised since his first match against Seth Rollins and he hasn’t stopped that momentum. There is an endgame and it will apparently include taking over his father’s legendary legacy.

While speaking to Out Of Character, Dominik Mysterio revealed that there are plans for him to take over his father’s name. A change to a masked gimmick might also be in Dominik’s future, but that is also something that they are obviously building toward.

“Most definitely. I think the long goal here, the endgame, is to eventually take over the Rey Mysterio name. That’s the legacy within it. He’s Rey Mysterio. It’s only right to make a Jr. Traditionally in Lucha culture, and in Hispanic culture, that’s tradition. That’s what you do. I kind of just showed up and Dom Mysterio organically happened. Everything happened so fast.”

“We didn’t really get a chance to put these little things together, but we definitely have talked about it. He’s mentioned before that the mask is something I have to earn along with the name. If one day he wants to pass it on to me after he retires, or he wants to make me earn it after he retires or something, whatever it is, I’m up for it. I know that name belongs to me and it’s only right. Hispanically, culturally, it’s only right, but whatever he wants at the end of the day because he’s the one that made it what it is. I’ll respect his decision whatever it is.”

Dominik Mysterio was drafted to RAW with his father as part of a package deal. We will have to see what’s in the future, but it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the former Tag Team Champions eventually find themselves in the middle of a heated family feud.

Putting a mask on Dominik Mysterio might be a risk, especially since fans already know what he looks like. There are a ton of possibilities at this point, because Dominik Mysterio’s time in WWE is only getting started.
