The following are highlights from a recent Miami Herald interview with Chavo Guerrero:
On the business situation in TNA: “When TNA went live, it was either going to take off or it was not going to take off. It’s a crucial time right now in TNA, and I really hope it takes off because it’s better for the business, better for the wrestlers, better for the fans, better for everybody. They got the right players in place, but they have to tweak it all…You can’t beat our wrestlers. Our roster is incredible. The wresters, we are all doing our part. We are all trying. You can only do so much…”
“It’s a business. I’ve seen that exact same thing in every other company I’ve been in. It’s the nature of the beast. They are making what they think are the best decisions for the company. That’s the way it is. That’s in any business. I know people that are teachers, and they are let go. They are great teachers, but for some reason they are let go. It’s just the way it is.”
On the success of Vickie Guerrero in WWE: “Nobody knew. She didn’t know. We didn’t go, ‘Okay, we are going to make her the next big thing.’ It just happened. She is a total natural. She is so good she doesn’t even know how good she is. She is a general manager that doesn’t really wrestle, and she is the biggest heel in wrestling basically. They hate her. That’s a big thing to have a general manager who is not a wrestler have the most heat in the company. Eddie is looking down smiling saying, ‘That’s my girl.'”
