Rey Mysterio was recently interviewed by CBS Sports and discussed several topics. Among them were the comparisons that Dominik got to Rey, retiring against his son, Eddie Guerrero, and more.

Below are some highlights from the interview:

Mysterio on comparisons of Dominik to Rey:

“There will be a lot of comparisons made between you and your father,” Rey and trainer Lance Storm told Dominik early into his training, something Rey reiterated to CBS Sports while discussing A&E’s “Biography WWE Legends – Eddie Guerrero” premiering Sunday. “You let them come in one ear and out the other. You stick to your path and you stick to your goals. You do what you believe is the best thing for you. Take advice, at the end of the day, you dissect the advice and figure it out.”

Mysterio on a retirement match:

“The perfect scenario is that Dom would be the right person,” Rey said. “And not necessarily to retire me but put what matters most to me on the line and that’s my mask. It’s something I’d be willing to do.”

Mysterio on removing his mask while talking about Eddie Guerrero:

“The mask in lucha libre is very sacred. It’s something that we protect and we cherish,” Rey explained. “Especially when it’s within generations of a family. When it’s generational and you’re carrying the name of your father or someone who came before you — in my case Rey Misterio Sr. and Rey Mysterio Jr. — you even protect it with your life pretty much.

“I remember during that incident, I wanted the fans to hear Rey Mysterio but I also wanted them, in a way, to know who was behind the mask and the feelings I felt. Because the connection that I felt with Eddie in the ring was beautiful and incredible. But the connection we had outside of the ring was even deeper.”
