Professional wrestling career

World Wrestling Entertainment

Early appearances (2005, 2010)

In 2005, Gutiérrez made his first appearance in professional wrestling at the age of 8, as part of his father Rey Mysterio's ongoing feud with Eddie Guerrero, in which the two rivals fought for custody of him, and Guerrero stated that Mysterio was not his father. Mysterio defeated Guerrero at SummerSlam, ending the storyline. He once again appeared in 2010, this time during the feud between Rey Mysterio and the Straight Edge Society (CM Punk, Luke Gallows, and Serena).

In-ring debut (2019–present)

On the March 19, 2019 episode of SmackDown Live, Gutiérrez appeared on the show with his father, Rey Mysterio, who announced that he would be facing Samoa Joe at WrestleMania 35. He once again appeared on Raw from April to June, during the feud between Mysterio and Joe. During the following months, he was involved in his father's storylines, including an interference in a match against WWE Champion Brock Lesnar At Survivor Series.

In May 2020, he again assisted his father, this time in dealing with Seth Rollins and his teammates Murphy and Austin Theory, after his father suffered a severe (kayfabe) eye injury. At The Horror Show at Extreme Rules, Mysterio had his eye removed in an Eye for an Eye match, where the winner could only be declared upon removing an opponent's eyeball from its socket. Dominik thereafter unsuccessfully came for revenge, having to be saved by his father's ally, Aleister Black. On the August 3 episode of Raw, Dominik issued a challenge to Rollins, which he accepted for SummerSlam, in what was Dominik's in-ring debut. The following week, after the SummerSlam match was made official, Rollins and Murphy attacked Dominik, landing over 30 kendo stick shots. On August 23 at SummerSlam, Dominik made his in-ring debut, where he was defeated by Rollins in a Street Fight. At Payback, Dominik teamed with his father to defeat Rollins and Murphy for his first victory in WWE. The next night on Raw, Dominik replaced his injured father in a match with Rollins, set up to determine entries into another match that was held later that night to decide the next challenger for the WWE Championship. Rollins avoided a frog splash, and went on to defeat Dominik, as a frustrated Rey looked on backstage. Next week he defeated Murphy with the help of his family in a Street Fight. The following week on Raw, he once again wrestled Rollins, this time in a steel cage match where he was defeated. A new storyline developed in September, where Dominik's sister began to show feelings for Murphy, the former disciple of Rollins. This caused unrest amongst the Mysterio family, and one such distraction caused Murphy to pin Dominik during a match.

As part of the 2020 Draft in October, Mysterio (along with his father and Seth Rollins) was drafted to the SmackDown brand.
