Dominik Mysterio Wishes Eddie Guerrero Had Won Custody Of Him
By DAVID BIXENSPAN
Newly prison-hardened Dominik Mysterio, son of Rey Mysterio, saw Eddie Guerrero like an uncle before a storyline revealed him as Dom's biological father. Eddie passed away shortly after in 2005, but Dominik has been modeling himself more and more on the late Guerrero.
"I feel like I've always been drawn to Eddie, whether it's early 90s Eddie, WCW Eddie, or it's 'I'm your papi' Eddie," he told Rllegends Senior News Editor Nick Hausman. "And to me, any Eddie is the best Eddie and he's just the top of the top to me and anything I do is in his honor, man — the mullet, everything. So for me, yeah. He's the man."
Hausman asked Dominik if he wished Guerrero had won the infamous ladder match for the custody of Dominik. "Yeah, 100%," he said, "And I mean, WWE storyline, he is my dad. So, man. I would've loved to have gone home with Uncle Eddie at this point, right? I feel like we would've had a really good dynamic at home."
