As WWE RAW and SmackDown prepare for a significant change with the upcoming draft at the end of the month, superstars from all three brands are on edge. Dominik Mysterio, in particular, has been facing criticism from fans who have trolled his main roster run and questioned his decision to skip NXT.
Dominik Mysterio first made headlines in 2019 when Brock Lesnar attacked him during a feud with Rey Mysterio. Since then, Dominik has become a fixture on WWE television, competing against big names like Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.
Last year, he turned heel for the first time and joined The Judgment Day, stepping out of his father's shadow. Some fans, however, have accused Dominik of benefiting from nepotism and called for him to focus on improving his in-ring and mic skills by going to the developmental brand.
Despite these criticisms, Dominik has achieved notable success in WWE, becoming a former SmackDown Tag Team Champion and working with prominent factions like The Judgment Day and the Latino World Order.
Father-Son Feud Ignites WWE
The father-son rivalry between Dominik and Rey Mysterio began at WWE Clash at The Castle 2022 when Dominik joined The Judgment Day and targeted his father.
After weeks of torment, Rey Mysterio moved to the blue brand, only to be targeted again by the criminal group. Rey accepted Dominik's challenge for a match at WrestleMania 39 after Dominik insulted his family on live television.
At WrestleMania 39, the two faced off in an emotional match, which saw 'Megastar' Bad Bunny interfere to prevent Dominik from cheating. This allowed Rey to seize the opportunity and secure victory. On the following RAW, Dominik and Damian Priest, attacked Bad Bunny in retaliation.
Dominik Mysterio and Damian Priest will likely compete against Bad Bunny and Rey Mysterio at WWE Backlash 2023. As Dominik's career unfolds, fans and critics will watch closely to see how the young star develops in the high-stakes world of professional wrestling.
