Rey Mysterio can’t help but acknowledge Dirty Dom’s greatness

This week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown was a clip show, the “Absolute Best of 2023.” Much like with Monday Night Raw this week, however, WWE delivered at least some original content in the form of a couple pre-tapes and interviews.

One of those interviews featured Rey Mysterio and, of course, the topic of his son, Dominik, came up. And wouldn’t you know it, despite their issues, dear old dad had to acknowledge Dirty Dom’s greatness:

“I truly hope so as a father that he finds his way. I mean, deep down inside I give him credit for what he’s accomplished. He’s my son, he turned his back on me, but overall his growth in that ring has been tremendous and I can’t take that away from him. He’s doing an incredible job as the person he wants to be.”

He isn’t wrong. While some folks may think LA Knight has been the “Breakout Star of the Year” in WWE, for my money it’s Dominik Mysterio. When he was originally paired up with his father, I couldn’t envision any of this. He’s completely reinvented himself and become one of the top heels in the industry.

Anyway, here are all the videos from SmackDown this week:
