Chavo Guerreo Reveals Why He Came To TNA, Remembers Eddie

Shares 0

TNA Wrestling has a new article online featuring quotes from Chavo Guerrero on their official website. Below are the highlights:

Coming to TNA Wrestling

“Winning the TNA Tag Team Championship so fast (after arriving in the promotion) proves that, yeah, I came here on a mission – to be a major player right off the bat, and I’m not done yet,” Guerrero said. “Coming to TNA was something I wanted to do when I looked at the roster. It really is a great, great roster, without question the best roster of any wrestling company in the world.

“There are so many people on the roster who I have never wrestled against, and I want to wrestle so many of them, such as AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, and even Sting.

“There are so many in TNA who I could have five-star matches against.”

Remembering Eddie Guerrero:

“Eddie was such a good performer. So good, in fact, that he didn’t even know how good he was,” Chavo Jr. said. “He just loved to compete in the ring; that was his home. His addiction was being in that ring, in front of the fans.

“Eddie was a hard guy to get to know. But once he knew you, and liked you, he’d give you the shirt off his back – and I saw it happen many, many times. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and I think that came across on TV.

“Eddie wasn’t just my uncle, he was like my big brother to me.”

    I don’t blame Chavo I mean, having to JOB to freaking HORNSWOGGLE of all people??? Constantly being made a fool of by WWE. Man they messed up because Chavo is a damn good wrestler and instead of giving him the opportunity to pay homage to Eddie by winning the rumble and becoming world champion, they gave it to that midget Mysterio who’s not even Eddies blood! Chavo is Eddies nephew and like he said, they were like brothers!

      The problem with Chavo is that he has no charisma. He's a great wrestler talent-wise but he has no 'it' factor.
      Admittedly the stuff with Hornswoggle was crap, but he wouldn't have got dumped into that crap head first if he'd connected at all with the casual fans before that time. Sure, the IWC are high on him at times, but it's the casual fans who dictate matters, as we all know, and they just never cared for Chavo.
      Ever since Eddie died Chavo has adopted almost all of Eddie's style and mannerisms, even down to using the frog splash and the three amigos suplex combo. On one hand it's in tribute, fair enough, but it's got to the point where he's lost all of himself in the process.
      I have no interest in watching Chavo these days because of that. There is no Chavo Guerrero any more. There's just Eddie-lite, and it's a very lite Eddie-lite because Chavo isn't, wasn't, and never will be as skilled or as charismatic as Eddie was, despite any favour the IWC might have for him, and that favour is primarily sympathy resulting from Eddie's death, not from anything Chavo has done to earn it.
      Rey Mysterio got the Rumble win and the WHC and ran with it because he was over with the crowd. Chavo wasn't and could never have parlayed it into anything beyond sympathy.

    Why he came to TNA – no one else wanted him, poor thing.
    Remembering Eddie – I should hope he does remember Eddie. Both before Eddie's death and after, Eddie is the only reason anybody ever paid attention to Chavo.

    “without question the best roster of any wrestling company in the world.”

    Twice I’ve read him say this now. Without question? Here’s a question; have you never seen NJPW? That roster is the best in the world, certainly not TNA. Not by a long shot.
