Dominik Mysterio’s character growth is nothing short of remarkable, as he wasn’t taken seriously as a babyface. His fortune changed after he turned to the dark side and is now one of the biggest heels in Vince McMahon’s company. Now it appears Seth Rollins stated that he saw Mysterio’s transformation coming.

The 26-year-old is undoubtedly one of the highlights of Monday Night RAW, as they shower him with boos no matter what he does. Naturally, he has a bright future ahead of him in WWE.

Dominik Mysterio also has history with Seth Rollins as they feuded during the pandemic era back in 2020, which culminated in The Visionary defeated Dominik Mysterio at the WWE SummerSlam Premium Live Event that year.

While speaking on Logan Paul’s ImPaulsive podcast, Seth Rollins talked about Dominik Mysterio’s growth and stated that he saw it coming a long time ago.


Yeah dude, you know, you can come up with this great idea, but if the way you see it isn’t the way other people see it, it’s not going to work. That’s not just wrestling that’s everything.

Sometimes, WWE has this reputation of forcing thing but as characters it’s for us to figure out, it’s our brand. Yes, they are, WWE is the overarching theme, but I have to take responsibility for myself, and WWE gives us the autonomy to do that because we have these live events, we have TV every week, if we hear something, not everybody is going to hear that, if we see something, not everybody is going to see that about us, they can’t kept track of all of these people, and every single second.

For me, I knew, I remember I was sitting at a live event not long ago, and he was just getting booed out the building, and one of our producers, Hurricane Helms, was sitting there with me, and he’s like ‘if you’d have told me six months ago he was going to be a top heel in the business, would you have believed it?’ and I was like ‘yes.’

That’s the visionary part, I could see this coming, I’m like, he’s not built to be a babyface, he’s Rey Mysterio’s kid, he’s same thing (as Logan Paul), like people think he’s being handed everything for being Rey’s kid.“It’s so easy to want to hate nepotistic jerks, it’s so easy for people digging off their family name, it’s easy to hate that. I’m like, they’re gonna love him at first, but eventually it’s all gonna come back around.

As seen on this week’s episode of NXT, Dominik Mysterio challenged Wes Lee for the NXT North American Championship. Mysterio ended up winning the match with help from The Judgment Day. Thus, Dominik Mysterio became the new NXT North American Champion. We’ll have to wait and see how he will be booked in the coming weeks.
