Who is Aalyah Gutierrez?
Aalyah Gutierrez, also known as Aalyah Mysterio, is the daughter of Angie and Oscar Gutierrez. Oscar, known worldwide by his ring name Rey Mysterio, is a professional WWE wrestler and nephew of Mexican wrestler Rey Mysterio Sr. Born in California, USA on 20th August, 2001, Aalyah is 5ft 3in (1.63m) tall and weighs 114lbs (52kg) with vital statistics of 35-26-36.
Miguel Ángel López Díaz, Aalyah’s grandfather and the patriarch of the Mysterio family, was born in Tijuana, Mexico, in January 1958. A professional wrestler since the age of eighteen, Miguel was originally training to be a boxer, but had to change plans due to his body changing and him losing punching ability.
He became a professional trainer in 1987 after almost three decades on the scene. After opening a wrestling school with Negro Casas and Super Astro, international superstars such as Halloween, Konnan, and his own nephew Rey Mysterio Jr. eagerly attended his classes to learn from some of the best. Other wrestlers that Miguel trained include Extreme Tiger and Ruby Gardenia.
Miguel’s son, Miguel Aaron López Hernández, was born in November 1988 and is a masked professional wrestler who goes by the name “El Hijo de Rey Mysterio”. He began training at thirteen years old at his father’s wrestling school, and even fought alongside his father, and the duo became the first PWR Tag Team Champions in 2008 but were forced to relinquish the title in June 2009 after Rey Mysterio Sr. suffered a serious head injury.
Aalyah’s father Rey Mysterio was born in December 1974 in Chula Vista, California, and made his debut at just fourteen years old in 1989, after being trained by his uncle. In Mexico he learned his trademark wrestling style and some of his earlier names include “The Green Lizard” and “Colibrí”. Eventually, his uncle named him “Rey Mysterio Jr”, effectively passing the torch down to him.
In 1991, Rey Mysterio was named “Most Improved Wrestler” in Mexico, and from then his career advanced by leaps and bounds. He married Angie Gutierrez in 1996 and the couple had two children, Aalyah and her older brother Dominik.
As for Dominik, he was born in April 1997, and participated in several WWE storylines from an early age.
During one of the more scandalous storylines, wrestler Eddie Guerrero claimed to be Dominik’s father and fought against Rey Mysterio for custody of the youngster. Dominik was also present in 2006 with his mother and Aalyah, watching Rey win the World Heavyweight Championship two times.
Dominik finally made his debut in 2020 after training with Jay Lethal and his father for two years. There was a lot of hype leading up to Dominik’s debut, but sadly he lost his first fight against Seth Rollins, who he feuded with in May 2020. Dominik’s ring name is “Dominik Mysterio”, and his godfather is wrestling legend Konnan.
Aalyah’s Hobbies & Interests
Aalyah’s Instagram bio proclaims interest for three passions: beauty, fitness, and travel. Rey’s daughter loves posting snaps of her charmed life for the benefit of her 400,000 followers. Vacation pics and selfies make up the majority of her social media feed, and Aalyah is always clad in the latest trendy clothes such as Chanel bikinis, sporting Dior bags.
However, it’s not all material goods: Aalyah loves fitness and could possibly be planning to incorporate it into her brand. She advertises energy bars and has posted a workout snap or two in the past.
In fact, her father even said in a May 2021 interview that he would help her train and become a professional wrestler if she wished to. However, Aalyah herself said in November 2020 that she had no interest in fighting, although she likes exercising.
Music appears to be another of Aalyah’s interests; to date, she’s posed with artists Chris Brown, Ozuna, French Montana, Swae Lee, and DJ Luian to name a few.
Aalyah’s Personal Life
As of late 2021, Aalyah is happily dating Josh Thomas. She made things Instagram public with her boo on June 2020 via a romantic photo of the pair posing on the beach.
On National Boyfriend Day, she also thanked him for “putting up with me and all my stubbornness, brattiness, and pettiness”. The couple share many interests such as travel, and can frequently be seen in sunny locations. Not much is known about Josh, who prefers to stay lowkey and has private social media profiles.
Aalyah and Josh’s anniversary is on May 23rd, and they celebrated twelve months of love in 2021. Aalyah alluded to prior problems in paradise by saying “Thank you for all of the grace and forgiveness you’ve shown me after the countless mistakes I’ve made in our relationship”.
Nevertheless, it seems that things are better than ever for the young lovebirds.
Part of the WWE storyline in 2020 was centered on the romance between Aalyah and wrestler Buddy Murphy. The 13-year age gap didn’t go unnoticed, with him being 32 at the time, and social media went into a frenzy when the two shared a Hollywood kiss for the benefit of the cameras. In fact, the storyline between Aalyah and Buddy was criticized by fans when they realized that she was actually dating Josh.
Since leaving WWE, Buddy stated in an interview that: “I wasn’t comfortable kissing Aalyah.
I did that because it was my job and it was going to create more drama in the story”. He added: “But we are both adults, we are both acting, we gave each other a high 5 after it and that was it”.
Aalyah’s Net Worth
Reports vary, but reliable sources confirm that Aalyah net worth is over $100,000, thanks to social media advertising and sporadic WWE appearances. The youngster stated in November 2020 that she wished to focus on her studies and become a doctor, but as her parents are worth a combined $10 million, we’re sure that they’ll support her whatever her future dreams are.
