Though Mysterio didn't pick up the victory, he showed great promise in the ring as he prepares for a bright future in wrestling.
Speaking to Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT, Dominik gave thanks to those who helped him put the match together.
"Putting the match together, I couldn’t have picked a better person to help me with that than Seth and my dad. We also had the help of our producer Jamie Noble, another man who is outstanding at what he does. So I’m nothing but thankful to those guys for how they helped me and guided me through this crazy debut match at SummerSlam. Overall, I was very happy with the match. Again, nothing but great things for Seth and about Seth, and he guided me in unimaginable ways and I’m thankful for him and what he’s done for me," he said.
When asked about the backstage reaction to the match, Dominik said, "The reaction backstage was crazy. I got very emotional, hugged my mum, hugged my dad, hugged Jamie, Seth – the whole deal. Everyone was very happy and clapping for me, so it was a surreal moment. I definitely gave the bossman [Vince McMahon] a hug afterwards and thanked him for the opportunity. It was just a crazy experience. From seeing other people and other wrestlers finish their matches and walk through gorilla and hug Vince and stuff like that, having that be my turn to do it… I’m forever grateful."
Continuing the discussion about Vince, Dominik revealed he has gotten feedback from the boss and believes Vince is the reason he's in this position.
"We’ve definitely gotten some of his feedback. At the end of the day, I don’t know what people think, but I wasn’t asking for things or begging my dad, so I think me being brought into this storyline and being put in the position I was put in was definitely coming from someone that has a lot of power and my guess is that would be Vince. I’m very grateful," said Dominik.
Dominik teamed with his father Rey on the Raw following SummerSlam, but the match went to a no contest when Retribution interfered.
