Rey Mysterio hinted at a potential wrestling career for his daughter in the future, but insisted that she has her focus in the medical field and leaving WWE was the right decision.
Aalyah Mysterio, 19 is still pursuing a medical degree in college, after leaving WWE.
“It’s funny you say that. My wife just asked me yesterday, she goes, ‘What would you say if your daughter all of a sudden just said, dad, I wanna break into the business.’ I’d say I’d be the first to train her. I can’t say no. But of course she needs to continue with her medical field. That’s what she’s doing right now. She’s going to college to be in the medical field, so I’m looking forward to that. Again, if she decided to switch her mindset, I would be right there to support her.”
Her brother, Dominik, on the other hand, will become 24 and won the tag team championship with his dad. Dominik previously played high school varsity football at Horizon Christian Academy, which Aalyah also attended.
“She enjoyed it very, very much. She did some acting at a very young age, eight years old. My wife drove her to L.A. for two years straight because she wanted to be an actress, she wanted to do cartoons, and just do some Disney shows. Of course, two years after that she kind of drifted away to do something else, but she had a little bit of a feel of what it felt like to be in front of the cameras.”– Rey Mysterio via Ryan Satin’s Out of Character podcast (h/t Wrestling Edge)

She returned in 2020 and played a vital role where she was involved in a romantic angle with Murphy during the feud between Mysterios and Seth Rollins. According to Google trends, there was a 2,000 percent worldwide increase in searches once she appeared on live TV.
For now, she is absent from WWE Smackdown alongside Murphy. But with Seth Rollins back into the fray, a return for Aliyah Mysterio doesn’t seem very far away.
