Chavo Guerrero Talks About What Eddie Guerrero Would Think of Today’s Wrestling

– Chavo Guerrero was interviewed by The Daily Star to promote TNA Bound For Glory and was asked what he thinks Eddie Guerrero would think of today’s wrestling. Chavo responded:

“I don’t think he’d like it too much the way it is now, because it is hard for a young wrestler to get that seasoned experience. You can disguise it all you want with explosions and pyro and entrances, but when it comes down to it in the ring, it’s you and that other person. That’s it. People don’t get the chance to travel these days and learn how to wrestle, how to perfect this art.”

    Him vs Benoit at Armageddon 2006 was his best match by far

    Or be a model

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Now you just have to have any type of “athletic” background lol

  • Elvis Dolinski

    Too bad Chavo never learned the craft of wrestling, he never was his own man, he just copied Eddies moves, taunts, he never set himself aside from Eddie and rides his coat tails even till this day. Never liked Chavo, no match of his ever stood out and ever will

  • The reason WWF had so much great talent in the 80s and 90s, is because it had guys who had come up in the territory system and travelled the world, wrestling all over, learning different styles, honing your craft. You still get that with a few guys like Punk or Bryan, but a lot of these kids they have at the developmental center are literally sitting there learning how to cut promos in sound booths, in front of no one, they’re wrestling in front of the same crowd and WWE trainers every night, they’re not traveling around and gaining experience. They’re still incredibly “green” when (and if) they get called up to TV. What Chavo is saying is that these young wrestlers are not the same finely honed talent that were created for generations in Pro Wrestling before. Now it’s a very homogenized product.

    I’d have to agree. So many people are constantly stuck in other eras and mainly talent from those eras.
