Chavo Guerrero On Wanting To Be A Mentor, The Possibility Of Alberto Del Rio Returning To The WWE

During his appearance on WINCLY, Chavo Guerrero spoke on the possibility of Alberto Del Rio returning to the WWE, the lasting legacy of Lucha Underground and more. Here are the highlights:

On The Young Mexican Stars On The Rise:

Those guys are all super, uber talented. There’s no hiding that a lot of great talent has come out of Mexico with not only Eddie but Mil Mascaras and a lot of people that were box office stars. That’s what it comes down to – a lot of people can put on great matches but if no one’s paying to see it, then WWE won’t get behind it. It’s a business; that’s what wrestling is.

To see Rey come out and elevate these guys and now these guys are starting to drive money, it’s great to see. They’re not just putting on incredible matches, they are putting money in their pockets and making money for the organization. I love to see that. Alberto Del Rio – he was a pretty big draw out there and he did well for himself.

On The Possibility Of Del Rio Making A WWE Return:

We’ve seen it with Hall and Nash. We’ve seen it with Hulk Hogan. All of these guys that left WWE and almost put WWE out of business in a sense when they went to WCW. To see those guys go back to WWE, you never say never in this business. One thing I learned from Vince was to put personal issues aside. Business is just business and when WWE lets you go, it’s nothing personal and is just business.

On The Current Landscape Of Professional Wrestling:

It’s definitely a good time to be a pro wrestling fan again. With AEW, ROH, New Japan and MLW, the list goes on and on. I’d like to believe that we were instrumental in starting that a little bit with Lucha Underground. We showed that there is a lot of talent out there that’s not getting used. Now they’re all getting signed and these wrestlers are making money now. Competition is good for everyone. It’s great for the organizations, the fans and the wrestlers.

On If He Thinks Stephen Amell Will Join AEW:

He is very good friends with Cody so never say never on that one. I haven’t met with him all that much but I know he’s a big wrestling fan and just like with GLOW, my job on Heels is to make sure all of the wrestling is up to par. So, same type of thing but with Stephen, I wouldn’t doubt to see him in AEW at some point. But wrestling in scenes and getting your head kicked in by Cody are two different things.

On His Desire To Be A Mentor:

I had some really, really good teachers. Not only my family but Fit Finlay, Eddie, Malenko, Benoit, Arn, Curt Hennig, Bret Hart – those were my teachers. To be able to pass on some of that knowledge to other guys makes me happy.

This is sometimes a dying art form and everybody is worried about the next cool move instead of doing the in-between. I always say what makes a good wrestler a great wrestler is the stuff they do in between the moves, not the moves. To see that some guys are still keeping that alive makes me happy.
