Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio made history at WWE WrestleMania Backlash becoming the first ever father and son to win the Tag Team Championships!
Rey Mysterio and Dominik scored a big win over Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode to win the SmackDown Tag Team Championships making WWE history in the process.
It was understandably an emotional moment for the duo as they embraced each other and celebrated that very special achievement.
While speaking to ESPN SportsNation, Mysterio and his son Dominik talked about their huge WrestleMania Backlash win. Rey Mysterio was asked to compare the win to other accomplishments in his career.
Mysterio made it clear that although other moments in his career were great, winning the Tag Team Championships with his son is head and shoulders above the rest for him.
“I don’t take anything away from all my accomplishments in the past, but it’s on a different level, the fact that I’ve shared the ring with Dom and have become the first father and son Tag Team Champions. It’s indescribable. He’s been doing it since he was a kid. We did a story with Eddie Guerrero, rest in peace, when he was eight years old. It was already cemented within him that one day he would be part of this great industry and now here we are. He’s a great listener in the ring and a great follower. Now he has to get better in time.”
We’ll have to see what WWE has planned for the The Mysterio’s Tag Team Championship reign, but there’s no doubt it was an amazing moment in pro wrestling history and obviously one that Rey Mysterio will always cherish.
