Finn Balor has discussed Dominik Mysterio’s integration into Judgment Day, heaping praise onto the young star.
Dominik turned on his father Rey Mysterio to join forces with Finn Balor, Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley at Clash At The Castle in September.
Since then, Dominik has been showing off his mean streak since then, in a role that many have argued is more natural for him.
Speaking with BT Sport, Balor noted that he believes Dominik will become a huge star, noting:
“To see Dominik slip into the role so seamlessly. People forget, he debuted about a year before he turned heel and was learning on the job.
“He wasn’t really doing that much training. I mean that with the greatest amount of respect, but he had a couple months training with Lance (Storm) and a little here and there with his dad and stuff, but not an immense amount of training to be in the deep end on live TV for WWE.
“He was only kind of adapting to that and then he was thrown this huge curveball where he’s turning on his dad and portraying a completely different character. The way he’s stepped into that character is incredible to watch.
“I remember that first night when he was going out to do a heel promo and going up to him to try and calm him down a little.
“‘Don’t worry, it’s going to be cool.’ He’s like, ‘I’m cool. Don’t worry.’ ‘You know what you’re going to say?’ ‘Nah, I’ll figure it out.’ (laughs). He went out there super chilled and that’s how he is. I think he’s going to be a huge star for us.”
Finn Balor was in action at Survivor Series WarGames, losing to AJ Styles in singles action.
