"Dirty" Dominik Mysterio: Bio
Following in the footsteps of your father is no easy task to begin with, let alone when he’s arguably the most legendary luchador of all time. But "Dirty" Dominik Mysterio couldn't care less about the family legacy.
First gracing the WWE Universe’s screens as a child during his father’s legendary rivalry with Eddie Guerrero, Dominik has re-emerged as a Superstar in his own right. Dominik’s squared-circle training was fast-tracked when his hand was all but forced by Seth Rollins' highly personal and bitter vendetta with Rey Mysterio, and he took up arms to defend his family’s honor.
Dominik soon found himself in a practically unprecedented in-ring debut, agreeing to face Rollins — a former Universal Champion who has defeated the likes of Brock Lesnar, Triple H and more — in a Street Fight in his first match ever at SummerSlam. He impressed in his debut, showcasing promising potential and making his father proud in a gutsy, though losing effort. Dominik has since tasted victory in singles action against Murphy and has teamed up with his father in a bitter war against Rollins and Murphy. From debuting in a Street Fight to later going toe-to-toe with Rollins in a Steel Cage Match, it’s been baptism by fire for the son of The Ultimate Underdog.
Dominik made history by winning the SmackDown Tag Team Titles alongside Rey Mysterio to become the first father and son tandem to capture the Tag Team Titles in WWE history. Yet, at WWE Clash at the Castle, Dominik shocked the world by viciously attacking his father. The following week on Raw, "Dirty" Dom further stuck the knife into his father's heart by officially joining The Judgment Day, though he was defeated by Rey several months later in a memorable showdown at WrestleMania.
"Dirty" Dom captured his first singles championship when he ended the historic reign of Wes Lee and became the new NXT North American Champion on the July 18th episode of NXT, and did it again by defeating Trick Williams on the Oct. 3 episode of NXT.
Now that he is aligned with The Judgment Day with the domineering Rhea Ripley whispering in his ear, who can say just how high "Dirty" Dominik Mysterio’s star might rise?
