Dominik Mysterio made his professional in-ring debut at WWE SummerSlam 2020 inside the ThunderDome against Seth Rollins.
Dominik is the son of Rey Mysterio, already putting pressure on him to live up to the Mysterio name as Rey is recognized as the greatest luchador in history by WWE.
Speaking to G-Moniy, Dominik was asked about immediately jumping into the WWE ring and trying to live up to the Mysterio name.
"Originally, we had plans for me to go independently and had a scheduled debut independently and go through the whole process of doing indie wrestling and hopefully get a tryout with WWE, but I was very blessed and very fortunate to be in the position I'm in and be given these opportunities. Living up to the Mysterio name, there is definitely some pressure that comes with it, but I'm out there having fun and doing what I can. I can't get too caught up on the pressure and having to live up to the name because he's done so much for the business and the Mysterio name, taking from Mexico, my uncle Rey Mysterio Sr. to making Rey Mysterio a worldwide name. Being able to take Dominik Mysterio and continue the legacy is a blessing. I'm very happy to be a part of it, and hopefully, I continue to do the name justice and slowly start erasing the name Rey Mysterio and keeping Dom Mysterio," he said.
Dominik faced his father at WrestleMania 39 with Rey coming out on top in the clash.
Dominik is currently part of The Judgment alongside Rhea Ripley, Finn Balor, & Damian Priest. The group was drafted to WWE Raw during the 2023 WWE Draft.
