Rey Mysterio On Losing The WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title: "I Did Not Mind One Bit"
Rey isn't a political person
Rey and Dominik Mysterio made history at WrestleMania Backlash when they became the first father-son duo to win a WWE Tag Team Championship, but they didn't embark on the long title reign many were hoping for.
The Mysterios only defended the championship three times during their 63-day reign and they would drop the gold to The Usos at Money In The Bank on July 18.
Despite only having a short reign with his son, Rey isn't too concerned and he told DAZN that he didn't mind losing to The Usos "one bit."
"I've never been a political person in this industry, and you can ask anyone. They'll probably tell you the same. I did not mind one bit. I'm very thankful that we have the opportunity to work with The Usos, and I'm very thankful that my son is learning from them because he is learning. They've been around for eight years, maybe more. I remember when The Usos were kids, and they would hang out with Umaga because I was really close friends with Umaga and Rikishi (The Usos dad). They've been around for a minute, and my son as well. So to be able to see their growth, how great they're doing, and at the end of the day, we all make mistakes," Rey said.
"We're not perfect. We sometimes stumble on the same mistake more than twice. The best thing to do is correct that mistake. I think this last one is definitely the one that really made him wake up and say, 'Okay, I get it now. I messed up.' But we all deserve a second chance, sometimes a third chance. No harm there. I'm very happy and thankful to pass the titles on to The Usos. Our time will come back around. And when that time comes back around, I'm sure they're going to feel the same way when it's time to return titles back to Dominik and myself, and that might be at SummerSlam. It might not. It might be down the road," he continued.
"But at the end of the day, I'm always prepared to return whatever I want, meaning titles, you know, whether it's a week, a day after. I became world champion, and I lost the title the same night against John Cena. So there's no hard feelings whatsoever from my end when I have to turn in the titles."
Since losing the title, The Mysterios have continued to feud with The Usos and they have teamed with John Cena against The Bloodline at recent house shows.
