WWE legend Rey Mysterio is still battling against the idea of facing his son Dominik in the ring.
The former world champion, who is set to be inducted into the Hall of Fame on March 31 as part of this year’s ceremony in Los Angeles, came out on Raw to celebrate the announcement only to be interrupted by his son.
Dom once again attempted to goad the masked icon into accepting his challenge for a father/son match at WrestleMania 39.
Despite his best efforts, Rey still turned down the bout and walked away, looking visibly emotional as he made his way up the ramp.
Their latest exchange came days after tense scenes on SmackDown when the Judgment Day star confronted his dad moments after his Hall of Fame induction was announced.
A video package aired highlighting his influential run before he made his way to the ring to cheers from the crowd.
He didn’t get long to soak up the adulation though, as The Judgment Day music hit and his son Dom came out flanked by Rhea Ripley, Finn Balor and Damian Priest.
He ripped into his soon to be Hall of Fame father, branding him a ‘washed up old man’ one week after he ripped up one of his iconic masks and laid him out with a clothesline.
He asked his dad how many birthdays, Christmases and ‘soccer games’ his missed ‘all to make this Hall of Fame career’.
Led by Santos Escobar, Legado del Fantasma came down to back up Rey, leading to a huge six-man tag match against Judgment Day with Zelina Vega and Rhea Ripley at ringside for their respective teams.
Rey himself stayed at ringside for the match, looking on as Escobar – who has voiced his admiration for the legend lately – and his team fought Dom and his allies.
WWE Raw airs Monday nights at midnight on BT Sport.
