Dominik Mysterio has already made a lasting impression during his short time in WWE. One of the things he did before his official WWE debut was a fight with Brock Lesnar. Dominik became involved with his father Rey Mysterio’s feud with Brock Lesnar at WWE Survivor Series 2019.
During his recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Dominik Mysterio talked about how he hit the Frog Splash for the very first time when facing Brock Lesnar. At this time, Rey Mysterio was trying his best to win the WWE Championship and Dominik interfered to help his father. Unfortunately, it did not matter and Brock Lesnar retained the title at WWE Survivor Series.
“We were in the back talking about what we could do if something presented itself. My dad was like, ‘hit the frog splash.’ ‘I’ve never done a frog splash before.’ I just started looking at videos of how Eddie used to do it and it just came together. From there on, it was just like, ‘Yeah, I’ll hit the froggy.’ So now, it’s the Eddie frog splash. I’ve jumped off the turnbuckle, did the [Macho Man pose] and jumped down, but never actually did a frog splash.” – h/t Fightful
