In an appearance on Rasslin with Brandon F. Walker, Rey Mysterio spoke highly of the progress made by his son Dominik Mysterio and how this could affect his retirement from the world of wrestling, which is increasingly imminent.
"I think I'll take a step back when I feel like my son is ready to take off on his own," Mysterio said. "That would be really useful for him. I hope it happens within this year. For him to expand and take care of things on his own.
I had the opportunity to participate in the same house show as him, with me struggling in a match completely. separated and he struggling alone. A couple of times he fought with Chad Gable, other times he fought Otis one on one.
I can see the difference when I'm not in there with him and when we're in together. He tends to do much better and is less stressed and doesn't have a lot of pressure when he's there alone. He likes him."
Rey Mysterio still wants to continue
Rey Mysterio also spoke about how talents like him, Randy Orton, and Edge have become veteran voices in the WWE locker room for young talent. Specifically, Mysterio pointed out how Orton and Edge helped his son, Dominik, as he continues to gain experience.
"There is a lot of conversation with the kids, the young talents, the new generation, making them feel at home and giving them advice. Whether it's good advice when they do good, or if they do something bad you can say them: "You know what? You can maybe do better.
Try it. See if it works, and if it doesn't work, we'll find another way." You see a lot of these things from Randy Orton or Edge. My son Dominik got a lot of advice from Randy, from Edge, from the guys who have been there.
Guys like us who have been there since the beginning of 2000." Rey Mysterio obviously also added that he is very proud of Dominik. In addition to Ziggler, Bad Bunny also eliminated former WWE Champion Sheamus from the Men's Royal Rumble.
He also came face-to-face with Brock Lesnar, but The Beast Incarnate eventually eliminated Bunny from the match. Before initially departing WWE, Bunny competed in a huge tag team match at WrestleMania 37. He teamed up with the reigning WWE United States Champion Damian Preist for an emphatic win over The Miz and John Morrison on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
