Rey Mysterio Heaps Praise On Dominik's Career So Far, Says Breaking Up Their Team Was For The Best

Rey Mysterio believes it was best for tag team with Dominik to split

Dominik Mysterio’s rise in WWE ever since his heel turn has led to him becoming one of the biggest heat magnets in the entire company, with him firmly establishing his own career and legacy away from his father, Rey Mysterio. 

In an interview on Rampage Jackson’s Jaxxon Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Rey Mysterio remarked on how proud he is of his son, and noted that the best thing for his career was to split up their tag team. 

“For my son to come in out of nowhere and not have my style, have a different build. He’s 6’1. He’s about 190 [lbs]. So it was very hard for him at the beginning to try to adapt and find his role as a wrestler. The comparisons — they were made. And of course, he couldn’t live up to them. Not until we separated and he continued on his own path without having his dad by his side. And that was the best thing that could have ever happened to him… In the past three years, he’s had the success that I never had in three years breaking in the business. I mean, times are different. But as a father you could only imagine how proud I am. Incredible.”

During their time as a duo, Rey & Dominik Mysterio became the SmackDown Tag Team Champions - the first father & son duo to do so in WWE.
