Rey Mysterio’s Son Recalls Eddie Guerrero’s Touching Gesture During WWE Segment
Rey Mysterio's son has opened up about his incredible heart-warming experience of working with the legendary Eddie Guerrero in a WWE storyline.
Dominick was thrust into an on-screen WWE role as his real-life father battled with Hall of Famer Guerrero over his paternal custody in a 2005 story angle.
During the latest episode of WWE Untold, dubbed 'Rey, Eddie & The Rumble,' Mysterio's son recalled a controversially dark segment that he filmed with Guerrero in the park.
But behind the scenes Dominick revealed that the legendary wrestler repeatedly checked on him and would offer him Twizzlers.
He explained: "I remember very vividly the scene where I was filming with Eddie in the park.
"We did maybe five or six takes, and after every take he'd ask me, 'Are you okay?'
"And then he would hand me a Twizzler."
Dominick, who is following in his father's legendary footsteps as a wrestler, also admitted that kids at the time would ask him who his real dad was.
"I believe I was in the third grade at the time," he said.
"Everyone would ask me, 'So who really is your dad? Is it Eddie? Is it Rey?'
