Former WWE manager Dutch Mantel has shown his anger towards WWE during his conversation on SmackTalk. Mantel stated that he is pissed over the “Dirty” prefix being introduced for Dominik Mysterio. He also stated that Mysterio deserves that nickname but, he is not convinced that someone gave it to him without his permission.

Mantel then put the responsibility on Mysterio to keep up the prefix by doing the best he could. Dutch appreciated him and said, “I mean, he’s got more heat than most guys have in five years in the business.” Thus, he believes that Mysterio does not need any prefix to evolve as a heel.

The WWE veteran also clarified that Dominik’s heel persona was planned by the officials. While Mantel earned it by himself, showing off his heel character to the audience. Stars like Fandango have also adopted this prefix, but Dominik is one of the most high-profile ones on the list.
