Dominik Mysterio was first seen in the ring in the early 2000s alongside Rey Mysterio. Skip almost fifteen years forward, and the WWE Universe saw the young and tall Dominik Mysterio coming to his father's aid during his feud with The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar.
Brock Lesnar brutally attacked Dominik Mysterio and his father on an episode of WWE RAW, injuring Dominik. The injury led Rey Mysterio to bring in Cain Velasquez, who Brock Lesnar beat in about at Crown Jewel. After the match, when The Beast wouldn't let go of the Kimura Lock on Velasquez, Mysterio attacked him, forcing Brock Lesnar to leave SmackDown and jump to RAW.
As a WWE RAW Superstar, Brock Lesnar defended the WWE Championship against Rey Mysterio at Survivor Series. The match saw Dominik Mysterio interfere and hit Lesnar with a 619 and a couple of chair shots. Even though Dominik Mysterio tried to tilt the match in his father's favor, The Beast Incarnate proved too strong to beat. Brock Lesnar walked away that night, retaining his WWE Championship.
