Rey Mysterio is a household name in the professional wrestling business. He is arguably the most popular luchador of all time and there is a good reason for that. He also had trouble getting his family into the WrestleMania 35 afterparty.
Mysterio returned to WWE in 2018 and since then has been involved in a variety of high profile feuds. He has also teamed up with his son Dominik Mysterio over the past couple of years.
While speaking on the Monday Mailbag with Mike Chioda on AdFreeShows.com, Mike Chioda recalled the time Rey Mysterio had trouble getting his family into the WrestleMania 35 afterparty. Chioda revealed how they were not allowed to get into the afterparty due to them not having enough wristbands.
“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, we went out and bought bottles of Jack [Daniels], bought bottles of Vodka. Me and my wife, we went out with Rey, and 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 top people on the list, top people in the company that were 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, definitely.”
Rey Mysterio and Dominik are set to square off against The Miz and Logan Paul at WrestleMania 38 in a tag team match. We’ll have to see if the Mysterios will come out on top or not.
