Dominik Mysterio Planned To Go Down The Route Of Indie Wrestling, But WWE Blessed Him With An Opportunity
Dominik Mysterio originally planned to see how his career would go down in a route for Indie Wrestling.
The pressure Dom has faced to live up to his father’s legacy has been around his head since he first debuted. At first Dom was not the most liked by the WWE Universe and then his heel turn went down which changed everything.
Speaking to G-Moniy, Dom was asked about immediately jumping into the WWE ring and trying to live up to the Mysterio name.
“Originally, we had plans for me to go independently and had a scheduled debut independently and go through the whole process of doing indie wrestling and hopefully get a tryout with WWE, but I was very blessed and very fortunate to be in the position I’m in and be given these opportunities. Living up to the Mysterio name, there is definitely some pressure that comes with it, but I’m out there having fun and doing what I can. I can’t get too caught up on the pressure and having to live up to the name because he’s done so much for the business and the Mysterio name, taking from Mexico, my uncle Rey Mysterio Sr. to making Rey Mysterio a worldwide name. Being able to take Dominik Mysterio and continue the legacy is a blessing. I’m very happy to be a part of it, and hopefully, I continue to do the name justice and slowly start erasing the name Rey Mysterio and keeping Dom Mysterio,” he said.
Dom is currently part of the Judgement Day alongside Finn Balor, Damian Priest, and SmackDown Women’s champion Rhea Ripley. At WrestleMania 39, Dom faced and lost to his father Rey Mysterio.
