LIKE FATHER LIKE SON
Pro Wrestling Sheet has quoted Rey Mysterio as stating the following:
“Come January, I’m gonna get him in the ring and see how his reflexes are as soon as he steps into the ring. See what he can do, what he cannot do … and then go from there. And Konnan, I think he’s gonna be a part of this once I get him in there.
He continued: “He already started college, so I would love for him to get his degree. But as far as wrestling goes, we just started training together, he just started dieting (and) taking supplements, all these necessary things that he probably wasn’t doing in his high school years. So right now he’s going into about his third month of just lifting properly, without doing any power lifting or heavy lifting at all. He’s just having a routine, a normal routine of working one to two body parts a day, five to six days a week, (and) eating right.”

ALL GROWN UP
Many of the WWE Universe will remember Dominick for his role in the 2005 feud between best friends Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio. It was a storyline that has since been voted one of the most tasteless rivalries in WWE history.
Guerrero and Mysterio were fighting over the custody of Dominick, with Eddie stating that he was the eight-year old's biological father and that he allowed Mysterio to raise him. This feud came down to a ladder match at Summerslam 2005 between the two for custody of the youngster, that was thankfully won by Mysterio.
Dominick has grown up a lot in the last 11 years and is now in college and hoping that under his father's tutelage, he came become a recognised star just like the former World Champion.
