Dominik Mysterio did an interview with Metro News where he reflected on the classic custody storyline between his father Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero in 2005.
This feud resulted in a ladder match to determine who would gain custody of Dominik at SummerSlam.
At the time, Dominik was 8-years old. He noted that even teachers would come up to him and ask him who his father is.
‘For me, it was harder to have to explain to the kids at school who my dad was. I think that was the most challenging part, ” Dominik stated “‘Oh yeah, 100% people were coming up to me asking me – even teachers, they were like, “Who’s your father, Dominik?” I’d be like, “Well it’s Rey Mysterio, this guy right here, Oscar”. It was crazy.’”
He continued by noting that he remembers the storyline vividly and feels blessed to work with Guerrero. He added that he was excited to skip school and travel with his father and Guerrerro.
The son of the former WWE Champion made his in-ring debut at this year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event by wrestling Seth Rollins.
