The match started with Sami Zayn ranting about his lack of opportunities as usual. Rey Mysterio held up most of the match as Corbin and Zayn tried to dominate.

Dominik also came through later in the match as he showed some bouts of athleticism. However, a little late in the match, he took a nasty bump on a table, following a suicide dive.

Dominik tried to recover from the bump as well. He hit Zayn with a Tornado DDT for a close-count. Rey and Dominik hit a double 619 as well.

However, Zayn’s experience came in handy as he tired Dominik out and hit the Helluva kick after an Exploder suplex to pick up the win and qualify for the Elimination Chamber.

The Mysterios regrouped while Zayn and Corbin celebrated in the ring. Following the match, fans were concerned about Dominik.

Will we see a heel turn from Dominik Mysterio?

There have been multiple reports that Dominik might turn heel on his legendary father as some of their visions don’t seem to match.

Dominik has been in the wrestling scene since a very early age. Being the son of a WWE legend, Dominik had all the access to the best training and facilities.

Dominik had a rivalry with Seth Rollins during his debut, and he is one of the very few superstars who had his debut at a PPV. Followed by this, the Mysterio Family feuded with Rollins and Murphy before the latter joined the Mysterio Family.

Hopefully, Dominik did not suffer a concussion from today’s bump and will be back in no time. The young Mysterio has been improving each day, and the bump is part of that.

Let us know your thoughts regarding the match in the comments below.
