Dominik Mysterio Discusses The Origins Of 'Prison Dom'
Dominik Mysterio has seen a massive character transformation since turning heel on his father, Rey Mysterio, at Clash at the Castle — with a major point since the turn being his storyline arrest right before Christmas. Following his one-day stint in jail, Dominik developed a new nickname for himself, "Prison Dom," which has received much attention.
Dominik discussed the origins of the nickname and the comparisons to "The Office's" Prison Mike character, saying, "Finn had actually gotten, like, memes about it earlier because he came out with the bandana and everyone was comparing him to Prison Mike. But then I just threw it out there as a joke and then the next thing we're doing is we're filming me like kind of hardened out of jail ... Prison Dom all the way."
Dominik has found a new edge to him over the past few months, mentioning multiple times on "WWE Raw" and "SmackDown" that he has done hard time. He continues to tempt fate, as, even though he was arrested for bothering Rey outside of WWE, he wound up doing the same during Valentine's Day — Dominik and his father may face off against at WrestleMania 39, but Rey has been adamant about not striking his son.
