• WWE’s Current Plan For Storyline Involving Rey Mysterio
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio lost 2-0 to Andrade in a 2 out of 3 falls match.
In a backstage interview after the match, Rey got emotional about the loss and says he needs support from his family.
According to the Wrestling Observer, this angle is expected to lead to Dominick’s in-ring debut in WWE:
“Regarding Dominick Gutierrez, who was on television as part of the Rey vs. Joe angle, they want him to wrestle and this Mysterio angle may play a part in this. Right now the feeling is he’s not ready for in-ring on this stage, but the hope is he’ll be ready in 2020.”
