Throughout wrestling history many successful tag teams have later fallen apart at the seams and been forced to settle their differences in the ring. But Rey Mysterio feels that he and son Dominik will be the exception to the rule.
From the moment that Dominik made his in-ring debut at SummerSlam 2020 against Seth Rollins the younger Mysterio has been on a firm upward trajectory. After his family feud with Rollins ended, Dominik began teaming with his father as the pair landed on SmackDown.
The team steadily moved up the tag team ranks, coming within touching distance of the gold on more than occasion. However, it wasn’t long until the duo climbed to the top of the mountain, beating Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode at WrestleMania Backlash.
Reflecting on his most recent success, Rey Mysterio told Alistair McGeorge of the Metro, that teaming with his son is a blessing. Mysterio continued, explaining that a match against Dominik is firmly off the table.
“We actually talked about this a while back, when my son started to train. The more and more we got to spend time together in the ring and outside of the ring, it came to the point where me and my son were like, there’s no need.
“The connection here is so beautiful, the love – more than father and son, I think we’re like best friends. For the moment, there’s no time for us to even be thinking, “how would it be like to face each other?”‘
“We’re enjoying such a great moment right now within our personal lives, within our wrestling careers,’ he smiled.
“For me, it’s a complete blessing, before I end up retiring – to have been able to share these moments with my son. So that thought of possibly facing each other, I think was thrown down the trash a while back.”
Rey Mysterio was most recently in action on the SmackDown before WWE Hell In A Cell. On the show, Mysterio faced Roman Reigns inside the ‘Devils Playground’ for the Universal Title.
Despite a typically gutsy effort Mysterio was unsuccessful in trying to capture the belt for the first time.
