Still revved up after becoming the first father-son duo to win duo titles on the WWE main roster, Rey and Dominik Mysterio recently appeared on 'WWE's The Bump' to talk about their triumphant victory over The Dirty Dawgs (Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode) at WrestleMania Backlash.
And here the youngest of the dynasty of champions wanted to give credit to someone who helped him a lot in his powerful growth in recent months: his former opponent Seth Rollins. While the champions were live for the broadcast, WWE's The Bump panel showed a clip from the interview Seth Rollins released last week on the show, and specifically the fact that, in the words of the "SmackDown Savior" without his firm fixation on annihilating the Mysterios last year, Dominik wouldn't be the star he is today.
Dominik Mysterio's lavish praise for Seth Rollins
In essence, Rollins believes it was his job that helped Dominik kickstart his WWE career and advance his skills to become a new champion. Dominik responded to Rollins' comments last week saying that he certainly can't blame the former WWE and Universal Champion for thinking this.
"I mean, he's not wrong," replied Dominik Mysterio. “Somehow it helped and guided me. At the end of the day, we're still talking about a certain Seth Rollins. He is one of the best in this business and one of the best to ever have.
Therefore, I must give to Caesar what is Caesar's. And in this case, to Seth what belongs to Seth Rollins." Inevitably, however, Dominik Mysterio was also asked how important the teachings of Papa Rey were. This is his response: “Working together with him goes very smoothly.
He is also very determined, he is very stubborn. We never go to the head-on collision, but I have to say that sometimes it's hard to make my point understood when he doesn't. In the end, however, it always gets there and we resolve all our possible misunderstandings."
