In an appearance on the It’s Our House Podcast, AEW manager Vickie Guerrero talked about the famous storyline between her husband, Eddie Guerrero, and Rey Mysterio where they fought for custody of Rey’s son, Dominik. When asked how Dominik, now one half of the Smackdown Tag Team Championships with his father, coped with the angle, Guerrero said wrestling came as second nature to him.
“He was such a natural,” Guerrero said. “Just like with my girls, they were all involved with the wrestling product every Monday and Friday, Dominik and my girls. It was very easy for them to follow the storylines especially when Rey and Eddie were performing. We just kind of followed suit to enjoy the storyline so Dominik was, he was incredibly talented. He shows today how far he’s been, succeeding in the wrestling industry.
“So to see him become this great character on his own, I had no doubts about that because I just saw him as a kid, he wasn’t scared of the camera and kept all the direction really well. I think that’s just something that was just really easy for him and I’m really proud of him. He taught me a lot and we were all learning together. To see how he’s grown, is just incredibly fascinating to me.”
Guerrero also talked about lessons she learned from her late husband that she put forward in her career. The two specific things were remembering her religious faith and always being respectful to the wrestling fans.
“Just a couple of things that come to mind is remember my faith,” Guerrero said. “I pray every time I go out before a match or anything I want to do. I give everything to God and I give him the credit for my talent, my mind, my body being good, because without those little things, I wouldn’t have made it this far. Eddie was very strong in his faith and that was something that resonated with me. Even after you pass, you know to keep that going and whatever I did, I was gonna always give thanks to God.
“Then also respecting the fans. These are the people that pay for tickets to watch us, they feed our family, they helped me pay my bills. And so when I see the fans I always give respect to them by, you know, whether it’s an autograph or to just hear what they have to say or I try and answer my DMs on social media. And there’s a few creeps; I mean there’s a few things that are kind of weird but for the most part my fan base is incredibly supportive, and I, I can’t do anything without them. I always give them credit, you know, for me, being this long in to my legacy. That’s something that’s unheard of.”
