It was incredible scene at WWE’s first pay-per-view event post WrestleMania 37, the WrestleMania Backlash, as veteran wrestler Rey Mysterio created history. The superstar, who is fondly remembered for his high-flying reflexes, along with his son Dominik Mysterio went on to overhaul the Dirty Dawgs, comprising Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler, to become the first father-son Tag Team Champions.
The contest kicked-off with Rey standing alone against the duo as the Dirty Dawgs played foul and attacked Dominik prior to the match.
However, Dominik showed up towards the end of the contest and went on to pin Roode to secure his first championship in WWE.
WWE celebrated the moment by sharing a picture of young Dominik gracing his father, who held a championship belt in his hand, along with the latest picture of the two celebrating their SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
