Dominik Mysterio Was Not Supposed To Debut In WWE Until 2021


Rey and Dominik Mysterio talk about Dominik’s wrestling career so far during an appearance on “Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia.”

During the interview, Rey revealed that his son wasn’t supposed to debut in WWE until 2021. Obviously, things changed. Here is what he had to say: 

We weren’t expecting this opportunity so quick. We were still giving it about another year of training. We started to negotiate with WWE for him to potentially sign a developmental deal and we said ok. I told him to go to the Performance Center and get ready and be ready by 2021. This opportunity presented itself. I told him I can’t say yes or no. It’s up to you. However you feel. As a parent, the last thing I wanted him to do is fail on his first try. I said all eyes are on you. It isn’t an indie show with no TV. You are live worldwide, SummerSlam, one of the biggest PPVs in WWE. He took the opportunity. He had been training for almost three years by then.”

Dominik added, “I felt I could do it. I had training from Tempe, to Calgary and then to come home to San Diego and the people I had been in the ring with and the feedback I had been getting, I felt that I could do it. I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity that was being presented so I jumped on it.”
