Rey Mysterio Jr. On Being A Mentor To Young Talent, Eddie Guerrero's Influence In His Life

In a HUGE double episode being released this Friday (10/21/16) by The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, John and Chad welcome Lucha Underground's Rey Mysterio Jr and Marty "The Moth" Martinez. First up is the great Rey Mysterio and Rey comments on Season 3's progress thus far and what his future plans are for Lucha Underground and how he is playing a new role as mentor and veteran to the locker room. Later in the show TMPT will be joined Marty "The Moth" Martinez who also opens up and takes the listeners deep inside "the temple" as he gives the backstory of his character, the potential plans for The Moth Tribe and the influences behind his unhinged persona.

Taking on a leadership and veteran role with the younger performers currently in Luhca Underground.

"I don't like to look at it that way like I'm the "vet". I tend to give advice or help the young cats out but it is in a way that they pay so much respect to what I've done that I actually have had to tell them don't call me Sir and don't make me feel old. I say to the guys backstage either call me by my name, either Rey or my real name just don't make me feel old guys. But that is just a courtesy of respect and I've got to admire that. It just goes to show the hard work I've put in and I guess in a way that I love it but they know overall that I am there for anything they need whether it is for advice in or out of the ring, I'm always going to be there for the boys."

How the late Eddie Guerrero played a similar role in his throughout his career:

"With Eddie it was such an incredible bond. It was such a good, honest relationship connection, a brother-like, mentor-like connection that we had and honestly there will never be anybody in this lifetime that will see in any way, shape or form what Eddie was. But despite the fact that with Eddie it is funny the connection you have with someone outside of the ring that you can have that connection inside the ring and you could completely trust him with anything and that was Eddie. I had so much guidance from him in a spiritual way and in the ring that I still say in some way or form I've become the person that I am now because he had a lot of influence in my life."
