Rey Mysterio is very happy about his career with WWE. He is also very proud that his son Dominik is following in his footsteps. The legendary luchador also says that his son will be better than even the Greatest Mask of All Time.

Dominik Mysterio wrestles without a mask on, but that doesn’t stop him from copying a few of his father’s high flying moves. In the end, Dominik and Rey Mysterio might just do battle in a clash of males from the Mysterio household.

While speaking to TMZ Sports, Mysterio opened up about his son Dominik. He told his son from the get-go that he will be greater than even his famous father.

“I’ve told my son from the beginning, you’re gonna be better than your old man and I keep saying this over and over and over to him.”


“I can’t wait for the day for him to become his own man, although in a way he already is and for me it’s hard as a father to kind of let him go and fly on his own, but I truly believe in my heart, and I don’t just say this so he can stamp it in his head, but he’s gonna be better than his old man.”

Mysterio went on to say that, “It motivates me, it inspires me to keep doing what I’m doing because I’m seeing my son kickoff!”

Rey Mysterio is a former WWE Champion and he has also held plenty of other titles in WWE, including the SmackDown Tag Team Titles with his own son. That father/son team was the first of its kind to hold tag team gold in WWE. We’ll have to see if Dom can top his father’s legendary career, but he is off to a great start so far.
