In a new interview with the Haus Of Wrestling podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Teddy Long was asked about his experience being backstage at the 2023 WWE Draft. Long went on to praise Dominik Mysterio for getting Vickie Guerrero levels of heat in recent weeks.

“I’ll tell you what I was really impressed with, Dominik Mysterio. Brother, he’s got more heat than anybody and that’s how you do it. That’s real heat because it took me all the way back to the Vickie Guerrero days because you remember Vickie, as soon as she opened her mouth, they started booing. They wouldn’t even let her talk and the same thing hit Dominik last night. He’s got the real heat there.”

Long went on to praise Rey Mysterio for training Dominik the right way and show him how the business really works.

“Dominik has got such a great father, Rey Mysterio, somebody that knows this business in and out and able to talk to him and train him the right way and show him exactly how this really works. The next thing that [brings him] heat is because you’re telling the story that deals with the family. Nobody wants to see a son mistreat his father, nobody wants to see a father mistreat their son. So, when you involve family in it, you’re telling a real story there.”
