Speaking to Denise Salcedo, Rey Mysterio discussed his legacy and impact on the pro wrestling industry:

It makes you feel proud of your accomplishments, it makes you feel like you had a dream in mind, and that dream became much more than you would have ever thought, opening doors for competitors that are my size, my height, my stature, Hispanic– and maybe not even in this sport. In any sport, because I do have a lot of fans that walk up and say ‘Rey, you were my guys, you know, I grew up watching you and you inspired me to play football.’ It’s like wow, and it doesn’t really hit you until you have those moments where they make you realize that you have opened up many hearts around the world, and I am very very thankful to God for that.

Rey Mysterio also discussed his son Dominick and how far along he is in his training to become a pro wrestler:


He’s been doing really good. I’m actually really proud of him and impressed of how fast he’s been picking up his learning skills. He still has a bit to learn, but he’s definitely moving in the right direction. And I’m so proud as a father. You can only imagine how much or how good it feels to watch him grow and to be with him next to him, you know, side by side when he gets to make a mistake and you get to correct them. And, you know, and hear his feedback as well. Tell me, Dad. I’m good. I don’t need this right now, you know. So it makes you open up your eyes to and really understand your son at age 22. You know, it’s a different experience, but I love it.
