Dominik Mysterio Comments On The Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio Custody Match


During a recent appearance on the “Out of Character” podcast, Dominik Mysterio commented on being involved in the custody match between Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero back in 2005, really believing he would have to live with Eddie if his father lost, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his teachers being confused as to whether Rey Mysterio or Eddie Guerrero was his father: “Yeah, no, honestly, it was crazy being a kid and being on TV because I think the most exciting part about all that was being away from school. I was in third grade and the last thing I wanted to do is be in school, so I was getting to travel with dad and you know, ride bicycles all around the arena so like, why would I want to be in school? But then like I would come back to school and all the teachers would be curious on like, what’s my home life like because they didn’t know if my dad was my dad or if Eddie was my dad or if there’s actually a custody battle for me. So some of the teachers had to pull my mom aside or my dad when they would come pick me up and ask them what’s the deal because they didn’t think it was healthy. But overall I think the kids were kind of like — they also were very curious about who my dad was but I always had to tell them like, No, I’m pretty sure my dad is Rey Mysterio.”

On thinking he’d actually have to go live with Eddie if Rey lost: “Yeah, I mean even me, they kind of had had me hooked at one point. I was like, ‘What’s going on here?’ I don’t know if I thought it, but like, I think I thought I would eventually go home with Eddie if he won. I genuinely thought that I’d probably end up going home with him because I don’t remember them telling me that — They wanted to do this storyline, and my dad pitched it to me and I was all on board with it but I remember asking afterwards, ‘Am I gonna like, what’s gonna happen afterwards? When this match does happen, like, what if you don’t?’ I remember thinking as a kid, ‘What if my dad doesn’t win and I have to go home with Eddie?’ I never actually asked that, but like, I thought about it, like me personally, I’d sit there and think about it, and then I’d be like, ‘Well, Eddie’s cool. I don’t mind.’”
