Dominik Mysterio is arguably one of the most hated heel in WWE. It all started when Dominik Mysterio turned on his father and joined hands with The Judgement Day.
Dominik wanted to prove he’s better than Rey Mysterio, so he challenged Rey for a match at WWE’s Grandest Stage. Rey Mysterio wasn’t ready to fight his own son but Dominik pushed him. Dominik insulted Rey’s wife in front of him, which angered Rey into accepting the match. Dominik gave a tough fight but Rey won the match at the end.
Dominik Mysterio recently was interviewed by Metro.co.uk, where he talked about his match against Rey Mysterio. Dominik says Rey was hesitant to face him at WrestleMania 39.
“After the match, I got back to my hotel room – we were in LA so there were food vendors outside our hotel. I think it was like 2 in the morning, and it was just me and my best friend, my buddy Daniel.
‘I texted him, I was like, “Hey I’m gonna go get some food, I’m not too tired”, because my adrenaline I think was still going. It was me and him, we walked out there, we got some hot dogs.
‘I was like, “Dude… I just wrestled my dad at Wrestlemania. This is pretty surreal”! I was like, “Damn, and I beat his ass!”
‘I don’t think he wanted to do it, and I know there was a time that I didn’t wanna do it either. But then things change, Judgment Day happened and I kinda came to the realisation that if I wanted to live up to the Mysterio name, or pass the Mysterio name, or even hold onto the Mysterio name and take it and run with it, I had to get through him.’
