DIKSIA.COM - Dominik Mysterio is a name that wrestling fans have known about since he was just a boy. First being introduced to the WWE Universe via the storyline between Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero, he has since gone on to become a top WWE Superstar himself.
How Dominik Mysterio Became a Wrestler
Dominik Mysterio was born on April 5, 1997, in San Diego, California. He is the son of Angie and Óscar Gutiérrez, better known as Rey Mysterio, one of the most popular and successful wrestlers of all time. He has a younger sister, Aalyah Gutiérrez.
Dominik grew up around wrestling, thanks to attending WWE events as a child to see his father. He had his first direct involvement when he was 8 years old in 2005, which was a storyline in which his father battled Eddie Guerrero over his legal custody.
During the storyline, Guerrero stated that he was Dominik's biological father. On August 21, Mysterio defeated Guerrero in a ladder match for custody of Dominik at SummerSlam.
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.
Dominik then stayed away from wrestling for over a decade, focusing on his education and personal life. He graduated from high school in 2015 and got engaged to his longtime girlfriend Marie Juliette in 2019.
He also began training to become a wrestler in 2017 under the guidance of his father and other mentors such as Jay Lethal, Konnan, and Lance Storm.
