Dominik Gutiérrez was born on April 5, 1997 in Santiago, California, USA, to his parents Oscar and Angie Gutiérrez. He grew up with his younger sister Aalyah. He completed his high school education and started to follow in his father’s footsteps in the professional wrestling world. Dominik made a few early appearances in WWE as a child, when he was introduced to the world by his father, Rey Mysterio, when he was only 6. He went on to receive professional training for WWE in 2017 and has since made his debut in the ring.
Unlike his father, Dominik Gutiérrez is a tall and muscular figure. While Rey was a man of small size and used his agility and wit to defeat much larger opponents like the Big Show, Dominik is a regular-sized WWE professional, standing at 6 ft 1 inch tall and weighing about 200 pounds. He has the physique to dominate opponents, not only with his wit but his sheer strength.

Dominic started appearing multiple times alongside his father before making his in-ring debut. He would even sometimes interfere in matches to help his father secure a win. In May 2020 when his father lost an Eye for an Eye match against Seth Rollins, Dominik Gutiérrez vowed to take revenge, thus challenging Rollins for a battle, which he was granted on the stage of WWE SummerSlam 2020.
Dominik Gutiérrez lost his SummerSlam StreetFight to Rollins and was left utterly disappointed. He fought Rollins for the second time in WWE RAW but faced similar consequences. In late 2020, he was drafted into WWE SmackDown where he once again fought Rollins in a No Holds Bar match, which he won, ending the feud.

He then started performing in tandem with his father, Rey Mysterio, and the duo started appearing in various tag-team matches, in which they faced mixed results. Their most significant defeat came in Wrestlemania when they had to face defeat in a 4-way tag-team match. The father-son team worked hard to prepare for the next pay-per-view event of WWE Backlash, and despite having being attacked by Dolph Ziggler and Roode prior to the match, went on to win the WWE Tag Team Championship. Dominik Gutiérrez and Oscar Gutiérrez became the first father-son tag team champions in WWE history.
In 2005, he was part of a controversy in WWE when Rey Mysterio and Eddie Gurrero had a feud over who was Dominik Gutiérrez’s real father. Eddie Guerrero claimed to be the biological father to the child and had a fight with Rey Mysterio for the custody of Dominik Gutiérrez. Mysterio went on to win the match and secure custody of Dominik, which seems to be the truth as Dominik and his mother have confirmed that he is in fact Rey Mysterio’s son.
