• Rey Mysterio Reveals What He Wants To Do With His Mask After Retirement
On Monday’s RAW, Rey Mysterio will celebrate his 20th WWE anniversary.
Rey is 47 years old and has been wrestling for over 33 years now.
During an interview with Sports Illustrated, Mysterio revealed that he wants to pass his iconic mask to his son Dominik after he retires from in-ring competition.
Below is what the former WWE Champion said:
“My next goal is to eventually be able to look for a great plan of retirement. I also want to make sure my son is set.
I’m really enjoying his evolution. We’re still seeing a lot of growth with Dominik. I always have to remind myself he hasn’t been doing this for very long.
He’s doing very well, and I push him to do better every single time he’s in the ring, I want to hang up the mask down the road, and hopefully see Dominik carry that mask and continue with the Mysterio legacy.
I’ve been passionate about this since Day 1, and it’s been even more special since Dom’s wanted to follow in my footsteps. He wants to continue the Mysterio legacy.
He started training 6 years ago and, in that time, we’ve had so many memories I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. It’s been a dream come true.”
Also on Monday’s RAW, The Mysterios will take on The Judgment Day (Finn Balor & Damian Priest).
