Report: WWE Tell The Mysterios They're Being Split Up

The end could be nigh for the team of Rey and Dominik

Despite the father-son team returning to seek revenge on Veer Mahan on this past Monday's episode of Raw, it doesn't appear as though Rey and Dominik Mysterio will be tagging up for much longer. 

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer claimed that the Mysterios have been told that they will be split up soon. 

WWE have reportedly come close to splitting them up on several occasions in the past, but those plans were always paused. 

"There's been a lot of talk of splitting them up for like months…even when Aalyah was around, when they were doing the tension between Rey and Dominik all the time and then they just dropped the ball every single time and they would forget about it and everything. They probably set up the split like 3 or 4 times," said Meltzer. 

Meltzer further speculated that a split would be bad for Dominik, while the company may not have any long-term singles plans for Rey. 

"I know that they were told this time when Rey took the time off to get stem cell [therapy] and they did the injury angle with Dominik that 'you know, we're gonna have Dominik go on his own', which they have said before that they were gonna do that. But the problem is that Dominik on his own is gonna be dead. Rey will always be over because he's Rey Mysterio but I don't know that they will ever really do anything with him because between the size and the age".

He also noted that the Mysterios will likely be used to put Mahaan over in their current feud, saying: 

"People will always pop for [Rey] and you can always do something with him but do you think that they're gonna have Rey beat Veer Mahaan? I don't anticipate that they are. Rey's job is to be the underdog and fight gallantly in losing to these guys. That's the role that they have him in".
