The WWE has officially released long-time wrestler Chavo Guerrero Jr. on Saturday. Member of the prestigious Guerrero wrestling family, Chavo attained moderate success in the WWE during his 10 year tenure. Unfortunately, Chavo grew tired of the way he was being used and finally decided to ask for his release. On Saturday, Chavo Guerrero Jr. made the following comments about his WWE release via his Twitter page:
“Yes, it’s true. My release is the big news I was talking about. But let’s get something straight. I asked for my release. I was just tired. Of not being used correctly. Just cuz u can make other ppl look good, doesn’t mean they should just have u lose to them. I was not happy in WWE anymore. I had a smile on my face last night though when I got my release though!”
Chavo first arrived in the WWE during 2001 buyout of WCW. Chavo wrestled as part of the Alliance group that was feuding against the WWE. Perhaps his most popular moments were when he teamed up with his uncle the late great Eddie Guerrero to form the entertaining tag-team “Los Guerreros”. They won the tag belts on two occasions. Eventually they would split up as Chavo grew jealous of Eddie’s single’s popularity and aspirations for the world title. Chavo’s father Chavo Sr. joined him and they would become a heel duo.
After Eddie’s death in 2005, Chavo carried on the family name for a few years. Sadly, he fell into mid-card oblivion until late 2007 when he got a run at the ECW world title and formed a heel group with Eddie’s widow Vickie Guerrero. Unfortunately, by mid 2009 Chavo fell back into obscurity where he stayed for the past two years. Chavo would express these frustrations on more comments from his Twitter earlier this morning:
“I will never go back to the place WWE put me in. I will never go back to being underutilized and watching ppl who suck get bigger “pushes” Than me! My hands were tied most of the time. It’s time for me to start being a Guerrero again, and start kicking ass again, be able to tell stories in the ring like u know we can. :) I love u all and can’t wait for the future!! So happy. :)”
Chavo would be a tremendous addition to TNA or ROH and I’m sure both companies would be interested in him. TNA has been wrestling in Mexico lately and Chavo’s addition would be huge. The best spot for him would be to join Mexican America and help them become a top heel group in TNA. Chavo is a great worker, from a great wrestling family, and deserves to be treated as so. It’s disappointing how the WWE has used him. I agree with his frustrations toward the WWE.
