Rey Mysterio: Eddie Guerrero Is Getting A Kick Out Of Seeing The ‘Scary’ Similarities Between Himself And Dominik

Rey Mysterio thinks it’s “scary” seeing the similarities between Dominik Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero.

Mysterio was best friends with Guerrero until he passed away in 2005. The loss hit him hard, and he used the memory of Eddie to win the 2006 Royal Rumble and the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 22.

The pair also had a famous match involving Dominik. At Summerslam 2005, Rey Mysterio defeated Eddie Guerrero to win custody of his son Dominik, something he later admitted regretting.

Rey Mysterio can see the similarities between Dominik and Eddie today. He told SHAK Wrestling that it is “scary” how similar they are, and even jokes with his wife that she cheated on him with Eddie.

Rey Mysterio does think that Eddie Guerrero is looking down, enjoying Dominik’s current run.

“I have to say this, and my wife is gonna kill me, but I’ve told her several times, ‘Did you ever cheat on me with Eddie?’ Because, Dom, I don’t know. She goes, ‘Yeah,’ and I never told you. I said, ‘No, no!’. I truly believe that Eddie is getting a kick out of this and, to a certain degree, Eddie has been in Dominik’s corner from the beginning.”

“It’s very special and sentimental to see my son’s growth and to see every now and then a little bit of Eddie in his character, his development, and the way he carries himself. There’s a lot of pride when I see him, and it reminds me so much of moments I lived with Eddie myself. Just watching him work—there’s no comparison, I’m just talking about little snippets and stuff he does that is just so Eddie-like. It could be as simple as the mullet. Sometimes, when I see pictures of him, it’s just like, ‘Wow, it’s just scary.'”
