Dominik Mysterio made his in-ring debut at the 2020 SummerSlam, where he lost to Seth Rollins in a Street Fight. Since then, Dominik teamed up with his father Rey Mysterio on WWE television. In 2021, Mysterios won the SmackDown Tag Team Titles and they became the first-ever father & son tag team champions in WWE history.
However, Dominik Mysterio’s character became boring on WWE television. Therefore, WWE decided to turn him heel. Dominik attacked Rey Mysterio at Clash at the Castle PLE last September and aligned with “The Judgement Day.”
Last December, WWE aired footage of Dominik getting arrested which gained a lot of attention from fans. WWE then aired a vignette of Dominik spending a few hours in jail and he is now acting like a tough guy on television.
In an interview with Inside The Ropes, Dominik Mysterio discussed his new prison gimmick.
“I feel like it was almost just like … a joke from my end where I, where I kind of just threw out this like, Prison Mike stuff and Finn had actually gotten, like, memes about it earlier because he came out with the bandana and everyone was comparing him to Prison Mike. But then I just threw it out there as a joke and then the next thing we’re doing is we’re filming me like kind of hardened out of jail … Prison Dom all the way.”
