Konnan Thought Dominik Mysterio Was Too Nice To Be Heel; Thinks Dom Should Beat Rey At WrestleMania

Konnan didn't think Dominik Mysterio had it in him to be a heel.

Dominik Mysterio has been antagonizing his father, Rey Mysterio, for several months on WWE television since joining Judgment Day. As a heel, Dom has shined in one area where his father, a universally beloved character, never got the opportunity to.

Konnan, Dom's godfather and the man who will induct Rey Mysterio into the WWE Hall of Fame, recently spoke with MuscleManMalcolm and revealed that he didn't believe Dom had the ability to become a credible heel, because, just like his father, Dom's naturally a nice guy who doesn't have any malice in him.

"No, no, no, no, no," Konnan responded when asked if he believed that Dom would become this kind of character. "Especially not as a heel because he's like Rey. You know how you meet guys that are naturally nice guys, they don't really have any malice? Rey's like that and Dom's like that because he raised him like that."

Continuing on, K-Dawg recalled Dominik questioning what his character was supposed to be when he was teaming with his father.

"I remember him going, 'People always ask me what's my gimmick supposed to be? What would my character do?' This is when he was with Rey. He goes, 'But what is my character?' and I go Yeah, you're right bro. You need to break away from fucking Rey.' It was cool at the beginning, but now it's like training wheels. WWE must have seen something in him to put him in with the Judgment Day. People that have more name [value] and experience than him," Konnan said. "I was thinking, 'Alright, he's gonna learn. Rey will teach him some stuff. Edge will teach him —' But nah, he came out of the boxes running. That whole Prison Dom thing got over like a million bucks, and just the fact that he's being disrespectful to his dad, who is universally loved. Yeah, I'm super happy."

When asked who he thought should win if Rey Mysterio was to face his son at WrestleMania, Konnan responded by saying it's time for Dom to go over on his father.

"I would put Dominik over, you know? Rey's already over. Yeah, that would get mega heat," he said.
