Dominik Mysterio Makes Huge WWE Contract Revelation

Last updated

WWE RAW Dominik Mysterio has been on the rise ever since he turned on his father, Rey Mysterio and joined forces with The Judegment Day. He has now revealed that he wrestled his in-ring debut at SummerSlam 2020 without a contract with the company.

Dominik notably went one-on-one with Seth Rollins at the August 23, 2020 event in his first match with WWE. Speaking on K100 w/ Konnan & Disco, Dominik revealed that at this point in his career, he was only getting paid per show by WWE, and didn’t have a long-term deal.

Recalling negotiations, Dominik said:

‘Actually, it was before I went on contract (was the payday that took me by surprise the most), because I was getting paid per show’¦ I did SummerSlam without being on contract. So I got paid for that pay-per-view.

‘We were in the middle of negotiations so it was all kind of being handled at the time. But in good faith, I was like, ’˜Yeah dude, I’ll do it.’

‘This is an opportunity of a lifetime so I jumped on it but after that SummerSlam and that following ’” because I did SummerSlam and then Monday Night Raw and then that following week, we did Payback when I tagged with my dad for the first time, like back-to-back, so I got two pay-per-view checks and a couple TV checks in one sitting and that’s when I was like, oh sh*t. This is pretty crazy.’

Dominik last wrestled at the January 9 edition of WWE Raw, winning the Tag Team Turmoil bout alongside Damian Priest.
