Rey Mysterio — born Óscar Gutiérrez Rubio — and his wife, Angie Gutiérrez, have been married since 1996, and they have a son and a daughter together: Dominik and Aalyah.

Rey is often considered to be one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, and wrestling is something that’s in the family. His uncle, Rey Misterio, is a retired wrestler, while cousins El Hijo de Rey Misterio and Metalika are also wrestlers.

Rey has involved his own children in his career from an early age, too: Dominik has gone into the family business, while Angie and Aalyah have been featured in storylines over the years —most notably, Rey’s feud with fellow wrestlers Seth Rollins and Murphy. In one memorable WWE SmackDown moment, fellow wrestler CM Punk sang "Happy Birthday" to a young Aalyah.

Rey has both of his kids' names tattooed on him, and the whole family took part in Celebrity Family Feud in 2022 against the family of fellow wrestler The Miz.

Rey has spoken about his pride that Dominik has followed him into WWE, telling local news outlet WESH 2 in 2023: “It was very hard for him to walk in my footsteps or be in my shadow because of what I’ve created for the past 34 years, so it’s beautiful, man. I am truly blessed to be able to see his growth and just enjoy watching him.”

Here’s everything to know about Rey Mysterio’s kids: Dominik and Aalyah.

Rey and Angie welcomed their first child, son Dominik Óscar Gutiérrez, on April 5, 1997.

Dominik has followed his father and great-uncle into professional wrestling with WWE. He made a number of appearances as a child, first as an audience member in 2003 to watch his father win the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, and he had his first storyline in 2005, when his dad and Eddie Guerrero fought for custody of him.

Dominik, whose ring name is “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio, made his Raw debut at the age of 23 in August 2020. After Dominik and his father feuded with fellow wrestlers Seth Rollins and Murphy, Dominik lost to Rollins in a Street Fight at SummerSlam.

In an interview with Pro Wrestling Torch in 2016, Rey discussed his son following him into wrestling. He explained, “Dominik said, ‘I want to see if you can start training me.' I was like, ‘Wow! That’s awesome.' Deep down inside, I wanted him to say that. This is a very tough sport. But I don’t think it’s tougher, I think football is much riskier than wrestling.”

Rey told talkSPORT in -

2021 that his son would have to “earn” the right to wear a mask like his elder relatives, but that “he’s already gotten a bunch of points from me.” He added, “I believe Dominik is on the path to earning the name and earning the mask, which comes with the name.”

At WrestleMania Backlash in 2021, the Mysterios became the first father-and-son tag team to win Tag Team titles in WWE. Meanwhile, Dominik was awarded Rookie of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated in 2020, and also won the NXT North American Championship in 2023.

Away from his wrestling career, Dominik married Marie Juliette Virissimo in March 2024. According to a November 2022 post on Instagram, the pair — who first met in a Spanish class at school — have been together for more than a decade.

Rey and Angie celebrated the arrival of their second child, daughter Aalyah Gutiérrez, on Aug. 20, 2001.

Over the years, the WWE star has featured Aalyah on his social media. For her 19th birthday in 2020, he posted a series of photos of his daughter, and called her the “most beautiful girl in the world in my eyes."

“Continue with your humbleness and that hard work ethic that you carry, you are truly one of a kind,” he added in the touching tribute.

While not a professional wrestler herself, she has been involved in WWE storylines under the name Aalyah Mysterio.

In one storyline, she became romantically involved with wrestler Murphy, and in another, the Mysterios hit Murphy with kendo sticks. She said in a 2020 WWE Network interview that she “loved” it.

In a 2021 interview with talkSPORT, her father discussed the possibility of Aalyah going into wrestling herself.

“She enjoyed it very much, even as a little girl when she would appear on TV,” Rey explained, revealing that Angie had asked him what he would do if their daughter wanted to step into the ring. "I said, ‘I would be the first one to train her, just like I did with Dom.’ I would! I would back her up 100 percent.”

However, Rey also said that she would have to continue with her studies, and that she “wants to be a part of the medical field.” Per her LinkedIn, Aalyah attended Grossmont College from 2019 to 2023, and her mom posted on Instagram in April 2023 that she’d been accepted into the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.
