Rey Mysterio Was Considering Retirement Prior to Dominik's WWE Debut

Dominik debuted in WWE last year

Rey Mysterio has revealed that he was seriously considering retirement from wrestling prior to his son Dominik joining WWE.

Mysterio has enjoyed a legendary career in the world of wrestling and has publicly stated on multiple occasions that working alongside his son in WWE has given him a renewed vigour for performing. 

The former WWE and World Heavyweight Champion has now admitted he was thinking about stepping away permanently from the business before his son got into wrestling, but working with Dominik in the last year or so has help to keep him going.

Speaking to TV Insider, Mysterio said: "Before my son even stepped in the ring I thought maybe it was time to hang up the mask. Having my son kick off his career gave me a moment of renewal. It was a rebirth.

"I see my son wrestle now and see myself from the early days. It definitely inspired me to stay in this industry because I have so much passion for this. I thought I was losing my passion in 2019 and that my career was coming to an end. My son was able to boost my energy and help me keep going."
