Rey and Dominik Mysterio spoke with Ryan Satin on Out of Character to talk about a wide range of topics.
During it, the former WWE Champion spoke about their routine after every match that his son works.
“Every time he wrestles, we sit down and critique the match. I told him, ‘You have to pick up your speed on the 619, you’re going too slow.’ He said, ‘I’m going at your speed.’ ‘You’re not going at my speed.’ I believe I was slowing down because I didn’t think he would go as fast as I would. During training, he runs fast when he hits the ropes, but still, no one like his pops. We critique the match and I tell him what’s good and what he needs to improve on. I tell him what he did really good on because you have to boost his morale too. I’m shooting with him and being straight. A lot of things, like kick outs, I’ll tell him, ‘You have to make sure you throw your body. The fans need to see you’re kicking out.’ I nitpick a lot and am a perfectionist. I try to make sure I point every single thing out to make sure he improves. When he does better the next time, I tell him, ‘way better than last time.’ That’s our process.
I tell him, ‘Don’t try to be your old man. I’ve done my career and done my path. Don’t worry about the haters. They will compare you to me, but block that out of your mind and do you. Create your own path. My fans, if they want to, they will convert into your fans. On top of that, you’ll gain fans on your own for who you are and how you’ve been grinding. They will respect that. Be yourself, don’t try to fill my shoes,’” he said.
