Since debuting for the WWE Dominik Mysterio has shown the WWE Universe and wrestling fans alike that he is not just riding his dad’s coattails and that he is a legit star. His Athleticism and work ethic has spoken for themselves and he is definitely has a bright future ahead of him.
While speaking to Out Of Character, Dominik Mysterio revealed that there are plans for him to take over his father’s name. A change to a masked gimmick might also be in Dominik’s future, but that is also something that they are obviously building toward.
“Most definitely. I think the long goal here, the endgame, is to eventually take over the Rey Mysterio name. That’s the legacy within it. He’s Rey Mysterio. It’s only right to make a Jr. Traditionally in Lucha culture, and in Hispanic culture, that’s tradition. That’s what you do. I kind of just showed up and Dom Mysterio organically happened. Everything happened so fast.”
“We didn’t really get a chance to put these little things together, but we definitely have talked about it. He’s mentioned before that the mask is something I have to earn along with the name. If one day he wants to pass it on to me after he retires, or he wants to make me earn it after he retires or something, whatever it is, I’m up for it. I know that name belongs to me and it’s only right. Hispanically, culturally, it’s only right, but whatever he wants at the end of the day because he’s the one that made it what it is. I’ll respect his decision whatever it is.”
The Mysterio’s were just drafted to the RAW brand and now only time will tell the direction that WWE will take his character.
