Pro wrestling veteran Rey Mysterio is facing huge setbacks in WWE currently. The three times world champion recently lost to Andrade in a falls count out match after which he looked frustrated and called that he needs to step up as he has a family to feed. Mysterio was insulted by Andrade earlier where he pulled off his mask.
The king of Luchadors appeared on the episode of RAW to give a short interview. He said that he had been fortunate to enjoy a great career but got emotional and added that things had not worked out in his favour. With a deep breath, Mysterio said that this day comes to every wrestler and its time for him to hang up his mask.
Entered his son Dominic and stopped him in doing so. The 22-year-old reminded Rey that he promised him that he will team up with him in his in-ring debut match. This made Rey emotional and he held back from retirement announcement.
The new storyline comes at a time when WWE seems very interested in signing Dominic. A report in last week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter says that WWE is hoping to have the 22-year-old Dominic step into the ring as part of his father’s ongoing storyline. However, they feel he’s not ready for his in-ring debut as a wrestler but will get ready till 2020.
Dominic’s first appearance in WWE came way back in 2005 when he was just a 8-year-old. Eddie Gurero claimed that he was Dominic’s father which build the feud between him and Mysterio. This led to a fierce ladder match at Summerslam 2005 and the winner had the parental right over Dominic. Mysterio won the match and claimed his right on his lil one.
Dominic worked with his father during the build-up to this year’s Wrestlemania. Mysterio was having a fierce rivalry with Samoe Joe for WWE United States Championship back then.
