Professional wrestling career

World Wrestling Entertainment/WWE

Early appearances (2003–2010)

Before he became a pro wrestler, Gutiérrez went to WWE events to see his father on several occasions. He was in the audience on the June 5, 2003 edition of SmackDown! in Anaheim, California where his father won the WWE Cruiserweight Championship from Matt Hardy. He celebrated with his father in the ring as SmackDown! went off the air. He had his first storyline in the summer of 2005 as part of a storyline between his father and Eddie Guerrero, in which the two rivals fought for custody of him. During the storyline, Guerrero stated that he was Dominik's biological father.[9] On August 21, Mysterio defeated Guerrero in a ladder match for custody of Dominik at SummerSlam.[10] He made two more appearances in 2006, first at WrestleMania 22 with Angie and Aalyah watching his father win the World Heavyweight Championship for the first time and second on the September 15 edition of SmackDown! where he watched backstage as his father battled with Mr. Kennedy. He once again appeared on the March 12, 2010 episode of SmackDown, this time during the feud between Rey Mysterio and the Straight Edge Society (CM Punk, Luke Gallows, and Serena).[11][12]

The Mysterios (2019–2022)

In 2018, Gutiérrez began training with Jay Lethal and his father to become a professional wrestler.[13] On the March 19, 2019, episode of SmackDown Live, Dominik appeared on the show with his father, Rey Mysterio, who announced that he would be facing Samoa Joe for the WWE United States Championship at WrestleMania 35 on April 7.[14] He once again appeared on Raw from April to June, during the feud between Mysterio and Joe.[15] During the following months, he was involved in his father's storylines and matches, including interfering in Rey's WWE Championship match against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series on November 24.[16][17][18][19]

In May 2020, Rey and Dominik feuded with Seth Rollins and Murphy,[20] leading to Dominik's first match at SummerSlam on August 23,[21] where he lost to Rollins in a Street Fight.[22] At Payback on August 30, Dominik and Rey defeated Rollins and Murphy, earning his first victory in WWE.[23] On the following episode of Raw, Dominik lost to Rollins in a qualifier for the triple threat match for the WWE Championship at Clash of Champions.[24]

As part of the 2020 Draft in October, Mysterio was drafted to the SmackDown brand.[25] At Survivor Series on November 22, Dominik failed to win a dual brand battle royal.[26] At Royal Rumble on January 31, 2021, he entered his first Royal Rumble match at #21, eliminating King Corbin but was eliminated by Bobby Lashley.[27] Dominik then began teaming with Rey, and on the WrestleMania edition of SmackDown on April 9, they faced The Street Profits, Otis and Chad Gable, and the champions Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship in a losing effort as the champions retained.[28] At WrestleMania Backlash on May 16, they won the titles from Ziggler and Roode, marking Dominik's first championship in WWE and making him and Rey the first father and son tag team champions in WWE history.[29] At Money in the Bank on July 18, The Mysterios lost the titles to The Usos, ending their reign at 63 days.[30] A rematch for the titles was set for SummerSlam on August 21,[31] which the Mysterios failed to win.[32]

As part of the 2021 Draft, Rey and Dominik were drafted to the Raw brand.[33] At Royal Rumble on January 29, 2022, Dominik entered at #14, but was quickly eliminated by Happy Corbin.[34] On the February 21 episode of Raw, The Miz challenged The Mysterios to a tag team match at WrestleMania 38 with social media personality Logan Paul as his partner, which they accepted.[35][36] On the first night of the event on April 2, Dominik and Rey lost to Miz and Paul.[37] On the June 27 episode of Raw, The Mysterios competed in a Money in the Bank qualifying battle royal, which was won by Riddle.[38]

Following this, The Mysterios began feuding with The Judgment Day (Finn Bálor, Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley) over their attempts to recruit Dominik into the group and betray his father. At SummerSlam on July 30, The Mysterios defeated Bálor and Priest following interference from Edge, The Judgment Day’s former leader.[39] After losing an Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match on the following episode of Raw, The Judgment Day attacked the Mysterios before Edge came out to save them, but accidentally speared Dominik.[40] The following week, Dominik confronted Edge backstage and pushed him; later that night, Ripley walked out on the stage in the middle of his father's match against Bálor, laying down a bloodied and bruised Dominik, distracting Rey long enough for Bálor to get the victory.[41]

The Judgment Day (2022–present)

Main article: The Judgment Day

Dominik accompanied Edge and Rey for their match against The Judgment Day at Clash at the Castle on September 3, which they won, but after the match, he hit Edge with a low blow and while his father Rey was begging for him to stop, Dominik hit his father with a clothesline, turning heel for the first time in his career.[42] On the following episode of Raw, Dominik officially joined The Judgment Day, helping the group attack Edge and Rey.[43] On the September 12 episode of Raw, Dominik lost to Edge by disqualification after Bálor attacked Edge with a steel chair.[44] On the October 17 episode of Raw, Dominik scored his biggest singles match win of his career by pinning AJ Styles after interference from Rhea Ripley.[45] At Crown Jewel on November 5, Dominik, Bálor, and Priest defeated The O.C. (AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson) in a six-man tag team match after interference from Ripley.

Personal life

Gutiérrez has been in a relationship with Marie Juliette since November 8, 2011.[46] He and his father both suffered from COVID-19 in December 2020.[47]
