WWE is known for coming up with many creative angles for storylines and their superstars to create excitement among the fans. However, more than that, the company is known to scrap angles that were meant to make it to television programming. The same happened with current RAW star Dominik Mysterio, who was supposed to be involved in an angle at WrestleMania 35.

Dominik Mysterio made his WWE debut in 2020 as an official member of the roster. He came in as the tag team partner of his father, Rey Mysterio, but soon split from him to join the notorious faction, The Judgment Day.

However, Dominik Mysterio’s first appearance as a grown-up Superstar was supposed to come a year before his official debut. At the time, Rey Mysterio was feuding with Samoa Joe over the WWE United States championship, with the duo heading for a mega match at WrestleMania 35.

Samoa Joe won a match against Mustafa Ali on April 2, 2019, SmackDown edition in Baltimore, Maryland, five days before the event. In relation to the WrestleMania 35 build-up, Dave Schilling, who was a member of the WWE creative staff at the time, tweeted a number of times. During that live tweeting session, he revealed that Rey Mysterio’s legitimate ankle problem led to WWE nixing an angle where Samoa Joe was supposed to injure Dominik.

“Next match is Rey Mysterio vs Samoa Joe for the United States Championship. Joe was supposed to stretcher Dominik in the build. We even got Dom licensed in Maryland so he could bump on SmackDown but Rey was hurt and it ended up being a heatless squash.”

On the April 1st, 2019, episode of RAW, Rey Mysterio suffered the injury while losing to Baron Corbin. The masked superstar’s United States Championship match against Samoa Joe still took place, but it ended in a 58-second defeat for him.

However, this year at WrestleMania is looking to be completely different for the Mysterio household. Dominik Mysterio is most likely to face off against his father, Rey Mysterio after months of a heated feud between the father-son duo.
