CM Punk likes to do his Twitter Q&As and occasionally, we get some interesting tidbits out of it. One such tidbit this time was who Punk thought was the standout star of WWE right now.
His answer? None other than the newly debuted Dominik Mysterio. Punk dubbed him Prince Mysterio on Twitter.

Dominik made his in ring debut at SummerSlam in a hard-fought Street Fight against Seth Rollins. Although Rollins was able to pull off the victory, many thought Dominik’s debut was commendable.
Since then, Dominik has put on a number of other solid performances. He and his father Rey Mysterio defeated Rollins and Murphy at Payback, getting a measure of retribution for all that Rollins had done to them. That extended to last week’s edition of Raw when the entire Mysterio family beat Murphy down with kendo sticks.
Punk has a long history with Rey Mysterio as well. The two engaged in a highly personal rivalry back in 2010 and it resulted in Punk having his head shaved. During one of the most personal segments of the rivalry, Punk creepily sang Happy Birthday to Rey’s daughter Aaliyah with Dominik there as well. Over a decade later, the Mysterio family dynamic is very different.
