Rey Mysterio recently appeared on WWE’s The Bump, and he looked back on his memorable outings at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He also previewed this year’s Royal Rumble Match when the hosts asked him what he would do if he had to compete alongside his son, Dominik.
“I would have to throw him out right away,” said Mysterio. “Yes, I mean, we’d have to do it, you know? There’s just no other option. Either he goes or I go. But I’m sure that I get first dibs on that, so he’s going over the top.”
Mysterio also discussed the latest chapter of his on-screen relationship with Dominik, who recently cost his father a match on WWE Friday Night SmackDown.
“These are steps for my son, you know, live and learn,” said Mysterio. “Sometimes your anger gets the best of you, and that’s what happened in this occasion inside the ring. But overall, I can’t upset with my son. We have a very close connection.”
Apparently, that bond is so strong that Mysterio feels prepared to eliminate his son from the Royal Rumble Match.
