Dominik Mysterio kept it old school in his feud with his father Rey, skipping out on a dinner after their WrestleMania 39 match. Dominik spoke with Sports Illustrated for a new interview and revealed that he turned down a family dinner to maintain kayfabe. You can see highlights below:

On keeping kayfabe after the match: “I just beat the f**k out of him. I wasn’t going to dinner with him. So I had a street hot dog and spent the night in my hotel. I was raised on that old-school love of the business. That’s a big part of our family dynamic. We have a lot of respect for the Mysterio name and this sport. I’m carrying lineage, my family, and history on my shoulders. My six godfathers, who are all legends, I’m not going to let them down.”

On being part of the Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio feud: “Not everyone can say they worked with Eddie. I hear people say, ‘My dream match would be Eddie Guerrero.’ s**t, mine too. Looking back, just sharing the ring with him, it’s an honor. Eddie helped plant the seed in 2005 that this was what I was going to do,” adds Mysterio. “I’m very blessed to have known him, and I am always grateful to keep his memory alive.”
