The Crown Prince. This week on Monday Night Raw, Rey Mysterio lost to Andrade in two straight falls in a two out of three falls match. After the match, Mysterio was distressed and could only talk about his family. That sounds rather vague and while it certainly seems that we will be hearing more about what Mysterio is doing later, the family part might have something big coming up.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is interested in having Mysterio’s son Dominick wrestle for the company and Mysterio’s loss could lead towards that. Dominick has trained to be a wrestler but is not considered ready for such a role. His targeted start date is some time in 2020, though it is not clear how the story to get him into the ring would play out.
Dominick was around earlier this year. Check out him running into Samoa Joe:
Opinion: This isn’t the most surprising news in the world as Mysterio is in his early 40s and isn’t going to be able to be in the ring much longer. Also keep in mind that Mysterio is the second wrestler to use the name so it’s not like there is some rule saying he can’t pass his character on. I don’t know how good Dominick will be in the ring, but the does at least have some legitimate training under his belt.
When will, if ever, Dominick get in the ring? What are you expecting from him? Let us know in the comments below.
