Chavo Guerrero was an active member of the AEW roster until recently, when he was removed from the AEW roster page on their official website.
Guerrero made several appearances for AEW as the manager for Andrade El Idolo before he left to begin work on season two of Young Rock.
Guerrero recently spoke to Nick Hausman on the Wrestling Inc Daily, where he spoke about the creative freedom in AEW, saying:
“Absolutely, that’s one thing that was cool about AEW, they kind of just gave you a direction and then let you do what you want to do. So, we were definitely involved with everything with that, and talking with Andrade. I wouldn’t help him with his matches, because that was him. But definitely promos and backstage stuff, I would say, ‘hey, try this, don’t do that, let’s go this route.’ He was great to work with.”
Andrade is one of many talents in AEW that were released from WWE. Guerrero spoke about how some talent doesn’t work in WWE, and reflected on some releases that were made while he worked their that confused him.
“WWE is just a different animal, man. Sometimes you hit, and sometimes you don’t. Sometimes Vince wants to put the machine behind you, and sometimes he doesn’t. Who knows? Even when we were there they would let go of these guys that I saw money in, and then keep guys that sometimes saw that it was more of a stretch. You’re kind of like, ‘What? That doesn’t really make sense, what is this?’”
Guerrero continued on with the comparisons between WWE and AEW, noting how the producers in WWE micromanage everything, while believing that the producers in AEW don’t do enough.
“In WWE the producers, the agents, they really got involved in your matches. In AEW, they kind of let you do your own thing. So, it’s almost like we need a happy medium. In WWE they micromanage you at times, and in AEW they didn’t do enough, I felt. I felt they really need to help a lot of the young guys just put things in the right spots.
“These guys are such talented wrestlers and such talented athletes, but sometimes it’s a spot fest. You’ve seen it, it’s just doing spots, and spots, just to do a spot. You know, just because you can do a backflip doesn’t mean you should do a backflip. I think that they need help in that.”
Chavo recently revealed that a current AEW star is set for a role in season two of Young Rock.
