Dominik Mysterio Says His Father Rey Didn’t Think He Was Ready Yet, More


As many of you saw at WWE SummerSlam, Dominik Mysterio made his official in-ring debut alongside his father Rey.

During a recent appearance on “The Kurt Angle Show”, the two men discussed the match and whether or not Rey thought Dominik was ready for his debut. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

Dominik on his reaction to making his debut at SummerSlam: “I was excited. I thought it was a joke at first. When he told me, I thought my dad was kidding. They were serious and it ended up becoming one of my favorite matches. I’ve only had a year.”

Rey on bringing Dominik into the ring for the match: “We had a plan lined up for Dom. A plan to go to the Performance Center, train, and get ready to eventually sign with the company. This whole angle just started to evolve organically. They brought it up to my attention if Dominik would be interested in wrestling. I personally didn’t think he was ready. That’s why he said he thought it was a joke, but no, they were serious. They wanted to know if he could be part of the match for SummerSlam, and sure enough.”

Dominik on being asked to do the match: “When he asked me, he said, ‘No, this is serious,’ and I said, ‘Alright, let’s do it.’ I thought I was ready. I had been training for a little over two years. If there was going to be a time, that was the time.”

Rey on leaving the decision to Dominik: “I told him, I said, ‘If I were to make the decision for you, I would not take it.’ I didn’t want him to fail. If he took the opportunity and he did bad, it’s very hard to cover that up. First impression is the best one and I was worried.”
