There is absolutely no doubt that Rey Mysterio is one of the most popular and greatest luchadors to have ever stepped foot inside the world of professional wrestling and remains a beloved Superstar in WWE. On the WWE WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view, Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik Mysterio challenged Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles. They would go on to defeat Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles and become the first-ever father and son duo to win the WWE tag team titles in the company’s history. Rey Mysterio’s daughter Aalyah Mysterio is also gone for a bad reason.
The two lost the titles eventually and since then they have been working together on Monday Night RAW following last year’s edition of WWE Draft. Rey Mysterio has worked hard to get where he is in professional wrestling, as he worked for over three decades. He still had very humble beginnings as he started wrestling at a very young age.
Former WWE referee Mike Chioda recently spoke on the Monday Mailbag with Mike Chioda on AdFreeShows.com, where he revealed how Rey Mysterio and his family, including his daughter Aalyah, were not allowed to attend the WrestleMania 35 afterparty.
“A few years ago, at my last WrestleMania in New Jersey, at the end of the night, Rey Mysterio couldn’t get his family in. He didn’t have enough wristbands, that was just two, three years ago. Rey Mysterio and I went out and bought bottles of Jack [Daniels], bought bottles of vodka. Me and my wife, I went out with Rey, his wife, and his son Dominik. We went outside with Rey and stuff, and I was like Rey, I’ll go in, I’ll get a couple of wristbands, I’ll come back out to you and give them to them, and we’ll just bring everybody in.
“There were a couple of top people on the list, top people in the company that was like, no, you can’t get in if you don’t have the bands. It’s like, you’ve worked for the company for this many years and you’re telling me my family [can’t come in]? WrestleMania was supposed to be a big thing for you and your family, and it just became so difficult to have fun with the family even at the afterparty. It was very disappointing at times.”
