In the world of WWE, the Mysterio name holds a significant legacy, and it seems that the torch may be passing from one generation to the next. Currently, both Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik Mysterio are reigning champions in WWE, with Rey holding the United States Championship on Smackdown, and Dominik carrying the NXT North American Championship.
However, according to Dominik, there's no doubt who holds the superior championship and legacy. At just 26 years old, Dominik Mysterio has emerged as one of the most notorious heels in WWE, aligning himself with The Judgment Day faction, all of whom currently boast titles within the company.
His recent separation from his father, Rey, has seen him flourish in his career.
Dominik's WWE Ascendancy
In an exclusive interview with "In the Kliq," Dominik Mysterio candidly expressed why he believes he has become the more prominent Mysterio in WWE.
He stated, "I don't think there will ever be a next Rey Mysterio...not because he is my dad but because the Mysterio that matters is me. I'm the one out here putting the Mysterio name on my back, taking my NXT North American title to all 3 countries in North America, that is Canada, Mexico, and the United States...no one's ever done that." Dominik didn't stop there; he emphasized his main-event status, stating, "The fact that I'm out here, I'm main eventing all three shows in one week, literally the main event of RAW every week...like I'm like, there is no next Rey Mysterio, I'm the Mysterio that matters, plain and simple." During the same interview, Dominik Mysterio addressed the recent release of Mustafa Ali, his scheduled opponent at No Mercy, expressing sadness over the situation and acknowledging that such decisions are often beyond the control of talented individuals.
With Mustafa Ali's departure, it remains uncertain who will step up to challenge Dominik for his NXT North American Championship at No Mercy. His last opponent, Dragon Lee, emerges as a potential favorite, but the WWE universe will undoubtedly be eagerly awaiting the announcement of Dominik's next challenger.
The Mysterio legacy appears to be in good hands, with Dominik determined to prove that he is the Mysterio who truly matters in the world of professional wrestling.
