A former WWE star has explained why he left the company after a ten year run.
As previously reported, Chavo Guerrero recently criticized WWE for their tendency to rewrite history.
Guerrero spent nearly ten years with the promotion and was most known for his feuds with the likes of Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio.
During a new interview with INSIGHT with Chris Van Vliet, Chavo Guerrero revealed why his uncle Eddie considered retirement shortly before his tragic passing. He said:
“I remember before he passed, like 6 months before, I remember him coming to me and saying I don’t want to be here anymore. I said, ‘Dude, drop out and do something else’.”
“He got real mad, [and said] ‘What am I going to do? What else am I going to do? This is what we do, we wrestle.’ I said that it doesn’t matter, your family life is more important.”
Chavo continued on to reveal that that conversation with Eddie led to his own departure from WWE, saying:
“My kids at the time were 8 and 11 maybe, and I just didn’t want them growing up without a dad. I had already been on the road for 20 years.”
“I didn’t want to get divorced. I didn’t want my kids to grow up without a dad. That’s kind of why I left.”
