WWE legend Rey Mysterio’s son Dominik reveals Vince McMahon waited backstage to hug him after debut against Seth Rollins

DOMINIK MYSTERIO has revealed he hugged Vince McMahon backstage following his explosive WWE debut.

The son of the legendary Rey Mysterio had his first-ever match last Sunday at SummerSlam against Seth Rollins aged just 23.

Despite losing to the Monday Night Messiah, the youngster impressed everyone with his abilities inside the ring.

The next day on Raw he got to experience another special moment when he teamed up with his dad to battle Rollins and Murphy in a tag-team bout.

Dominik admits he is still buzzing after a memorable week as he revealed what the reaction was like in the locker room to his maiden outing between the ropes.

And he let slip that even WWE’s boss enjoyed a warm embrace with him.

Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “It’s been crazy, it’s been surreal. Having to come down from cloud nine after being in my debut match at SummerSlam to debuting at RAW with my dad the next day – it’s been a blessing.

“Putting the match together, I couldn’t have picked a better person to help me with that than Seth and my dad.

“We also had the help of our producer Jamie Noble, another man who is outstanding at what he does.

“So I’m nothing but thankful to those guys for how they helped me and guided me through this crazy debut match at SummerSlam. Overall, I was very happy with the match.”

Dominik added: “But the reaction backstage was crazy.

“I got very emotional, hugged my mum, hugged my dad, hugged Jamie, Seth – the whole deal.

“Everyone was very happy and clapping for me, so it was a surreal moment.

“I definitely gave the bossman [Vince McMahon] a hug afterwards and thanked him for the opportunity. It was just a crazy experience.

“From seeing other people and other wrestlers finish their matches and walk through gorilla and hug Vince and stuff like that, having that be my turn to do it… I’m forever grateful.”
