Dominik Mysterio: Eddie Guerrero, My Real Father, Helped Me Get Where I Am As A Wrestler

Dominik Mysterio looks back on the classic storyline where Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero fought over him.

Long before he was a featured star on WWE TV, Dominik Mysterio appeared on WWE in 2005 during a heated storyline where his father, Rey Mysterio, feuded with Eddie Guerrero over the custody of Dominik. Eddie was determined to prove that he was Dominik's father, and the bitter rivalry led to a ladder match, where the custody of Dominik was on the line, at WWE SummerSlam 2005. Rey won the bout, but in recent months, Dominik has referenced the storyline while he and Rey have clashed in a heated feud of their own.

Speaking with Chente Ydrach, Dominik reflected on his role in the memorable rivalry between Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero. He playfully joked that his "real father" Eddie Guerrero helped him get where he is today and planted the seeds for him to be a wrestler.

“Seeing it now as an adult, it’s incredible to be in that position as a child. I was told that I was gonna get paid, I did not have to go to school or do homework during the feud, which was the best for me so I was ready. I told my dad that I was ready and to just let me know when, but it did scare me a bit because I was very shy and did not like to be in front of cameras & crowd. It was because of Eddie Guerrero, MY REAL FATHER EDDIE GUERRERO, that I am where I am and he planted the seeds to be a wrestler," Mysterio said.

Dominik has repeatedly brought up Eddie Guerrero during his rise as a heel on WWE TV. He previously told Rey Mysterio that he wished Eddie was his real dad. More information is available here.
