WWE legend Rey Mysterio is optimistic that his son Dominick will make his sensational debut with the wrestling promotion in 2020.
Mysterio's son has been training to become a wrestler and to follow in his father's legendary footsteps in the wrestling business.
And Dominick has played an on-screen WWE role in recent months, including his involvement in Mysterio's match with Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series in November.
Mysterio, 45, has now opened up about his potential retirement from the sport and his excitement about Dominick making his WWE debut next year.
"It's really hard to say right [when I will retire] because I feel so motivated and so driven by the sport," the ex-WCW superstar told Sportskeeda.
"I could change my mind a week from
now or a year from now -- but, as of right now, I really feel like I'm picking
up a second wind.
"To have my son follow in my footsteps, which wasn't in the plan three years ago, I think that, as well as the fans being the way they are, being so appreciative of the time I've put into this business, it makes me want to keep going.
"I hope that we can all get the chance to see him in 2020.
"I'm just as excited as the fans to see him step into the ring and have an official match."
Mysterio, real name Oscar Gutierrez, made his sensational return to WWE in 2018.
While the WWE superstar has no particular date in mind for his retirement, Mysterio revealed his dream is to share in a match with his son and that would allow him to "retire peacefully."
He explained: "I most definitely would love to share the ring properly with him in a tag team match or a three vs three, but I definitely would love to potentially share the ring with him one day.
"I think, after that happens, I can retire peacefully."
Earlier this year, reports emerged that Mysterio filed a trademark for what could potentially be his son's in-ring wrestling name.
