As noted last night, WWE announced a “retirement ceremony” for Rey Mysterio on next week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
WWE has since added that Seth Rollins will be the host of the ceremony which clearly means that this is an angle to further the Rollins-Mysterio feud. Another interesting note from Raw is that Rollins mentioned Rey’s son Dominik during his promo.
That is interesting because the plan since last year was to have Dominik to be involved with Rey for a few weeks and then to disappear so he could continue training and then bring him back in 2020 for his in-ring debut. The main reason why Rey returned to WWE in 2018 is that he was told that his son would get an opportunity to work for the company.
Another sign that points to Dominik returning to WWE TV is that he quietly deleted his private Facebook account in recent weeks and his friends have been in the dark about his wrestling career, likely because whatever they have planned for him is being kept a secret so it’s wise to keep your friends out of the loop to prevent any news from leaking.
Mysterio’s deal is set to expire in a couple of months but the expectation in WWE is that he is staying so that likely means that his son will be debuting soon.
There have been rumors since last year of Dominik turning on his father and having him join Seth Rollins’ stable would be a great opportunity to introduce his new heel character.
