Chavo Guerrero Speaks Out: WWE Release, Cena Criticism

Nick Paglino

Right After WrestlingArda Ocal (@Arda_Ocal) and Jimmy Korderas (@JimmyKorderas) of Right After Wrestling radio spoke with Chavo Guerrero Jr. (@mexwarrior). Highlights:

On his Twitter comments about John Cena:
"He hasn’t contacted me since I made those comments. People ask me why did you call him directly? And I did. Many of us did. I called him lazy on twitter. Don’t get me wrong. He works hard. In the gym. But he always has the exact same comeback. I just remember watching him and saying this isn’t the way we (myself and Eddie) taught you. And we keep seeing him doing the same shoulder tackle, hip-toss 5-Knuckle-Shuffle."

On his release from the WWE:
"It was really a longtime coming. I went into the creative offices (after putting over Yoshi Tatsu on Superstars) and asked who’s the better wrestler. They said me. I then asked how many countries speak Spanish. And then I asked who have you invested 10 years of television time into. They said me again. And I said they have no legs to stand on. I’ve always been about business but that’s when I said I’m not doing this anymore."

Speaking candidly about his career after Eddie’s passing:
"I always thought the WWE really dropped the ball after Eddie passed. I always thought the WWE didn’t really want to cash in on Eddie’s death. But I remember wrestling Triple H and the fans really went crazy for it. But they went with Rey for WrestleMania 22. And I went into Vince’s office and told him that could be me. The fans could really get behind me. And instead that went into me turning heel and having a great program with Rey"

On who he would like to work with in the future
"I would love to work with AJ Styles. We always used to call him ‘AJ Steals’ because we thought he was always stealing our moves. But I knew him since he was just a kid breaking into the business. But I would also like to work with Kurt Angle again and to see him again. But in the WWE, I guess a heel Randy Orton would be good to work against."

Is there another run left for Chavo Guerrero?
