WWE legend Rey Mysterio was treated to a surprise Thanksgiving on Thursday when his son, Dominik Mysterio, and The Judgment Day’s Rhea Ripley crashed into his home and gave him a merciless beating.
As seen in the video below, Dominik and Ripley casually strolled into Rey’s home, where Dominik assured his “Mami” that “the food is going to be delicious” and she will specifically love his mom’s tamales. When Rey refused to let the intruders in to Thanksgiving dinner, Ripley and Dominik took matters into their own hands and let themselves into the Mysterio household. After beating up his father, Dominik proceeded to show Ripley some family portraits as a helpless Rey demanded they leave the premises. Finally, Dominik held up a portrait of Rey winning the US title and smashed it on his father’s walking boot.
With the viral video racking up nearly 500,000 views within a few hours, it looks like WWE will use the footage to promote the Mysterio – Judgment Day storyline on its programming. It is widely rumored that WWE’s long term plan is to do a Rey vs. Dominik singles match at WrestleMania 39.
Rey was last seen in action against Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER on the November 4 episode of “WWE SmackDown”, in a match taped on October 28. Two days later, he wrestled at a WWE live event in Mexico City and has been out of action ever since. Rey was originally announced for the ongoing “SmackDown” World Cup, but was replaced by Mustafa Ali due to a reported lower leg injury. Earlier in October, Rey petitioned Triple H to move him to the “SmackDown” brand just so he could get away from his son and The Judgment Day.
