Brisco added that he has “no anger just emotions at this time.”

The push for Dominik Mysterio will continue to be a big one on RAW.

Mysterio, the son of former WWE champion Rey Mysterio, Jr., is already a key figure on RAW. His first feud as a wrestler involved another former champion in Seth Rollins. 

The push for the younger Mysterio is one that has support by his popularity among viewers. PW Insider reports that Mysterio is in the Top 25 percent of the roster for being popular, including main babyface. 

“I am told his push will be continuing,” the report states. “Right now, he is considered in the Top 25 percent. He’s in the Top-3 or 4 babyfaces on the RAW brand.”

Along with working under his father to perfect his skills, Mysterio also trained under former wrestler Lance Storm. 

The 23-year-old is a third-generation superstar, as he is the great-nephew of Rey Misterio, Sr. Wrestling fans were first introduced to Dominik in 2003 when he was six years old.

WWE brought Dominik back in 2005 for a feud with Eddie Guerrero and his father. 

Dominik and Rey competed together at Payback, topping Rollins and Murphy for his first official WWE victory. Dominik also squared off with Rollins at SummerSlam in a street fight.

In conclusion, WWE had high hopes for Dominik and he has met those expectations. He has a far way to go to match his father’s success, but the potential is there.
