Booker T talked about Dominik Mysterio's perspective on the possible showdown between the father and son duo.
WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has shared his opinion on Dominik and Rey Mysterio facing off in a probable match. He made it apparent during his latest Hall of Fame podcast that he doesn’t want to see it. He did say, though, that it might make a good family keepsake.
“That’s not something I really, really want to see or anything like that. It’s not on my bucket list,” he said. “To say, ‘man, I want to see Rey against Dominik one day in a match.’ But, I think about it like this also. Just think for a second that you’ve got that on tape, you wrestling your son at WrestleMania.
“We know what this is, we know this is a higher form of entertainment. To watch those guys, to be able to go out there and do it from a father and son perspective, one time, I can buy that. One time, just to see that match, just for keepsakes, for family mementos.”
Booker T also discussed the potential match from the standpoint of Dominik Mysterio. He feels that in the future, he will want to be able to have a match with his children. As a result, this would be an excellent time to reflect.
“I am just talking about having that match on film where my family can see this forevermore,” Booker said. “‘My son, hopefully, one day will do that with me.’ Maybe that’s what Dominik is saying, not me and my son. But that right there, man, that’s what this thing is all about. If it was boxing or MMA, it would be different. But there again, I always say how wrestling is to be embellished. That we can never take away the show in professional wrestling.”
Rey Mysterio cannot wrestle indefinitely, according to Booker T, and he should put up his boots. As a result, participating in this match might be a means for him to leave a legacy for his family. Outside of wrestling, Booker pointed out, there’s money to be earned for Rey.
“Rey is not going to be able to do this forever, alright? There’s going to be a time when he wants to put it down and let his son keep the legacy going. We don’t know if that’s in April,” he hinted at. “I’m just saying, there’s a lot of money out there for Rey to be made and it’s not in the wrestling business. That’s just me, that’s the way I look at that.”
