During the post-AEW Revolution media scrum on Sunday night, AEW President Tony Khan admitted that he owes Chavo Guerrero a phone call after he was removed from the AEW roster page without being notified.
For those unaware, Guerrero was taken off the roster page as he’s been out working as the wrestling coordinator on Young Rock. Chavo would later reveal that it was “news to him” and he was “pissed off” about it. Guerrero also said that he had tried to contact Khan about it and never heard back.
You can check out some highlights from the media scrum below:
On not calling Guerrero back: “I am going to call Chavo. To be honest, I was a little surprised because I only missed one message from him, and then he went to the media after he missed one message … I definitely owe him a phone call, but I was a little surprised to hear that. I do like him a lot, Chavo could walk in here right now and I would be very pleasant with him. But when I saw that, it was kind of like a busy week as we have a show every day.
“Wednesday we did Dynamite and Elevation, then we shot Dark in Orlando, and then we shot Rampage live. To be fair when Chavo was here, all of this was crammed on Wednesday. So maybe he didn’t know I had such a busy week. But he did just reach out this week and I haven’t gotten back to him yet. I will talk to Chavo, it’s fair enough.”
On Guerrero’s absence from AEW: “I don’t want to say how much he got paid to be the stunt coordinator for Young Rock, but he got paid a huge amount of money. He asked if he could take time off and leave, and I said, he was not under contract. He was on a weekly deal. I said, ‘I would love to have you back, and I do like you a lot, and you did a great thing.’ We will make our plans going forward without him here … we went on and we’ve done a lot of great stuff, and I really liked him, he did great stuff.”
