Rey Mysterio was joined by his son Dominic when he challenged Samoa Joe for the United States Championship at WrestleMania, which led to speculation that Dominic may have signed with WWE in come capacity.
He has been training under former WWE star Lance Storm at his wrestling academy in Canada, and a recent trademark application by Mysterio may have revealed further plans for his son in WWE and wrestling as a whole.
On March 12, Rey filed to trademark “Prince Mysterio” under the wordy description:
“Clothing, namely, tank tops, t-shirts, shirts, sport shirts, polo shirts, undershirts, sweatshirts, pullovers, jackets, pants, jogging suits, exercise pants, sweatpants, shorts, underwear, boxer shorts, socks, pajamas, belts, gloves, Halloween and masquerade costumes, wrist bands, bandannas; footwear, namely, shoes, sneakers, slippers; headwear, namely, hats, caps. Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network.”
Now, as I did one year of Spanish at university, I can tell you that Rey Mysterio means “King of Mystery”, and so logically his son would be the Prince of Mystery, which is was “Prince Mysterio” means. Aren’t I just the smartest?
So, could Mysterio’s match at WrestleMania and Dominic’s promise to be at ringside for the match be a way to introduce him to the crowd? It helps that his dad is pretty short, but Dominic is still a big guy and the Mysterio name will carry a lot of weight with it throughout his career.
He’s certainly grown up a lot since Rey won custody of him in a ladder match with the late Eddie Guerrero. Wrestling is weird.
