Chavo Guerrero was recently featured on The Wrestling Inc. Daily, where he compared AEW to WCW and discussed Tony Khan and Eric Bischoff’s falling out.
Chavo praised Bischoff and said that his public shots at Khan is simply how wrestling works: “You know, that’s the wrestling business. Eric has his way of doing things, and he’s outspoken, he doesn’t pull punches. I think when you’re that level, you’re not going to pull a lot of punches. But, at the same time, you’re going to be respected. You may not be liked, they may not agree with you, but they’re going to respect you. You see Eric still goes back to WWE every now and then, he was the head of Raw or SmackDown or whatever he was. So you’ve got respect in there because he’s been places. If you listen to Eric talk, man, the guy is so knowledgeable about the way analytics work.”
AEW felt “WCW-esque” to him: “It felt a little WCW-esque, a lot of wrestlers there. But they have a lot of shows, they have a lot of content to fill. Then they added a third show, they have the Dark show, they have Rampage, I can’t even name them, there’s a bunch of them. There’s definitely spots for a lot of the guys, for sure. I felt that there were a lot of people there, but I didn’t even want to analyze that, that was above my paygrade.”
Despite having been removed from AEW’s roster, he hasn’t talked to any company yet: “I haven’t yet actually, this was such news to me with AEW. Now being back in the States, I was in Australia for five months filming the Young Rock season two. So, just getting back here right now, so I kind of haven’t talked to anybody. I have only been home, I don’t think it’s been two weeks yet. So, I need a little time to decompress, but I am open, I am open for sure. I like what’s going on with WWE, and wrestling, wrestling in general. I am always a wrestling fan.”
