Chavo Guerrero On Whether WWE Took Notice Of TNA, Vince McMahon and Dixie Carter, WCW

Speaking to, Chavo Guerrero commented on whether people in WWE took notice of TNA Wrestling during his tenure with the sports-entertainment organization.

“At first it wasn’t, TNA was seen as just coming up in the business but then little by little they started to pick up more momentum and at this point in time I think TNA has the most momentum we have ever had,” said Guerrero. “If you look at our roster compared to anybodies, WWE’s, New Japan, Ring of Honor, I think we have the best roster in the world right now.”

Having worked for Eric Bischoff, Vince McMahon and Dixie Carter, Guerrero compared the three bosses in terms of their similarities and differences.

“First of all they are all great businessmen and women, they are at the head of companies because being a business person you have to be able to make those hard decisions and make good decisions, so that’s the similarities,” Guerrero said. “Differences, to me you have Vince McMahon who rules with fear, you better watch out or he’s going to cut your head off. Dixie Carter she rules with love and she is happy to have you on her roster and when you do well she lets you know about it. Eric Bischoff, he was kind of in the middle, sometimes he was very mean and wanted to bite your head off and other times you would go out for a beer with the guy.”

After only competing for two years, Chavo Guerrero received his first break with World Championship Wrestling in 1996. He recalls his time with the company.

“Wrestling in WCW was awesome because I was so young and it was a great mix of wrestlers. We had older wrestlers that had been around since my dads time like Arn Anderson and Paul Orndorff then we had the younger generation wrestlers which included guys like William Regal and Fit Finlay, then there were the likes of Eddie, Dean Malenko and Chris Benoit, and even younger guys like Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho,” said Guerrero.

“There was such a big mix of people that we really learned all different styles from all different eras. Every era of wrestling changes, it is always evolving, so we learnt so many different things and that’s what I took away with me the most from my time in WCW, it was just like going to school, I was at the Harvard for wrestling.”

Guerrero also recalls being part of the Cruiserweight division in WCW, the final episode of WCW Monday Nitro, joining WWE, winning the WWE Tag Team Championship with Eddie Guerrero, working alongside Vickie Guerrero, comparisons of WCW to TNA Wrestling, and more.

    People criticize their own product all the time. Angle just did it. Go a couple links down and see. Orton has repeatedly said it when he wants to turn heel. Others have done it time and time again. Chavo just comes off as a huge suck up here.

    As if ANY roster wrestler wouldn’t tow the company line .. if he/she wanted to keep their job. Good God some of you are idiots

    No wait Best roster in the world they have like 10 greats wrestlers overals most of them are indy wrestlers.Dixie does her best i respect the fact she’s’trying hard but her best ain’t enough and too much love ain’t good for a business trust me chavito ! Great i heard Chris Benoit name in two different report ! (The man as gone nut and did a horrible thing to is family but i will never forget him as a top wrestler with heart and passion of the business) Owen Hart – Chris Benoit we might never see them in the hof and in a wwe videogame or elsewhere!

    Does he realise that the statement that Dixie rules with love, just makes her seem less and less like a competent business woman?
    Does he think all the biggest names in business got where they are ruling with love?
    Blatantly people just see her as a soft touch.
