On what he remembers about working the match with JBL on the Eddie Guerrero Tribute episode of Smackdown:
CG: That whole day I was in a daze. I really don’t remember a who bunch of it. I only really remember who was there to be honest. It was like an out of body experience. I do remember that they asked me if I wanted to work. They said, “You can just go home now if you want.” I said, “No, no. I want to work. I have to work on this day.” JBL came up and he said, “I want to work with Chavo.” He may have just dropped the strap to somebody and he had already been the champ and been who he was. He said, “I want to work with Chavo.” So I said, “Ok, let’s do it.” He was the one who said, “I’m putting you over right in the middle.” I was like, “No, no, no, no, no. Absolutely not.” He said, “Absolutely we are.” We just had an idea but we really called that match out there. We kind of just went with it. I saw how good he became. I had worked him before when he was still an Acolyte or something like that. He was, you know, good but he became this very, very good worker after he was the champ. He really got polished and came in to his own and I saw that. That just helped me a lot just see where you need to be to be in that position. How good you have to be, you know?
