Guerrero Family Tired Of People “Prostituting” Their Family Name – Chavo Guerrero

Chavo Guerrero and Eddie Guerrero with SmackDown Tag Team Championships

Chavo Guerrero has some scathing words for people using the Guerrero name for their own benefit.

The man who he turned most of his ire on was Rey Mysterio, who often pays tribute to his friend, the late, great Eddie Guerrero during his matches.

During a recent virtual signing with Captain’s Corner, Chavo joked that Mysterio had been “trying to be a Guerrero” for a long time but isn’t one.

In a nod to the infamous storyline that saw Eddie claim to be Dominik Mysterio’s biological father, Chavo said Dominik could be a Guerrero, and added that his wife, Angie, has Guerrero blood.

“He’s tried to be a Guerrero for a really long time [Chavo joked]. So yeah. Rey, if you’re watching, you’re still not a Guerrero bro.

“I know you keep trying to be a Guerrero… Your son might be a Guerrero. But you’re not… I know Angie does [have Guerrero blood in her]. What!? Oh! In your face Rey.”

Chavo Guerrero accuses Rey Mysterio of “latching onto” the Guerrero name

Chavo went on to discuss Mysterio’s tributes to Eddie further, claiming he is tired of people “prostituting” the Guerrero name.

“I gotta tell you this, I just don’t understand why Rey Mysterio still has to — look, we all love Eddie, but we’re not going out with his gimmick and our gimmick, it was Los Guerreros’ gimmick and come out with the Los Guerreros, ‘We Lie, We Cheat, We Steal’ and everybody’s like, oh yeah, keeping Eddie’s memory alive.

“I say no dude. I’m tired of people — and this is not a bitter thing, this is the truth. We worked hard for that last name. This whole family worked really, really hard to get that name to where it was and we’re tired of people prostituting it in a sense and using it for their benefit.”

According to Chavo, the Guerreros simply don’t need Mysterio to keep the name alive.

“So, Rey Mysterio, I’m sorry that no one knows who Rey Mysterio Sr. is, Rey Mysterio Jr., no one knows who he is and I’m sorry that you have to latch on to the Guerrero family and we’re just kind of tired of it.

“So, thank you for keeping Eddie’s name alive, thank you for keeping the Guerrero name alive but we don’t need you, we’re good, you know what I’m saying?”

When the idea of reigniting his rivalry with Mysterio at WrestleMania 40 was suggested, Chavo claimed the star couldn’t “hold a candle” to him.

“I don’t think Rey could hold a candle to me right now to be honest.

“Comment and let us know if you’d like to see that rivalry again. We’ll finish it up. We’ve wrestled everywhere. We wrestled in Lucha Underground, we’ve wrestled all over Mexico. If you’d like to see someone come in and beat the living crap out of Rey… “

Mysterio is currently embroiled in a feud with Dominik and The Judgment Day. The next chapter in their story is likely to be written at Backlash, where it is expected he will team up with Bad Bunny to take on Dominik and Damian Priest.
