Rey Mysterio discusses his son Dominick’s progress training in the ring

Rey Mysterio was the fourteenth wrestler in WWE history to complete the Grand Slam (new format) and the twenty-first to complete the Triple Crown. Previously, Mysterio was known for his past in the World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

Coming from a family dedicated to Lucha libre, Rey Mysterio has always worn a mask in her appearances in WWE, the color of which changes from time to time, and contact lenses combined with the chrome of the dress worn. Speaking with GalaxyCon’s Rock Around the Ring, Mysterio gave an update on his son Dominick’s progress training in the ring.

Rey Mysterio on his son Dominick

“At first, right off the bat I did [see] that he did have something special. Because he was picking up everything as it came along, you know. He wasn’t falling behind, you would explain something to him once, twice, and he would jump right on it and continue, and get ready for whatever else he was learning.

But overall, I see him, and — he’s a very special case. I truly believe wrestling is in his DNA. That’s what he was meant to do, even though Dominick started very late at training at the age 19. For the past three years, he’s been kicking ass and I’m so proud of him.

But overall right now, he’s — he did a session with Lance [Storm] up in Canada. And then he was with Jay Lethal in Tampa, and right now he’s training with people here in San Diego. And the school he’s at now is incredible.

I actually love going there myself, because I love working with people. He’s so fresh with everything he does and is so creative" - Rey Mysterio explained. “I think he’s open-minded, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes for him to get to the next level.

And of course, he can only train so much. But in order to really pick up what he needs to know, that is going to happen in his first matches. So that is probably the next phase that we’re looking at soon, hopefully … I truly think that he should be ready by early next year.

I think without a doubt, just because of the style he brings, Andrade would be awesome. Andrade or [Angel] Garza, I think they would be incredible against my son. But overall, I think Cesaro would do incredible as well, just because of his height.

Dominik is 6’2″, 195 pounds. Still to this day, I tell my wife I’d love to DNA him because I believe he’s not my son [laughs]" - he added.
