A former WWE star has told Rey Mysterio “thank you for keeping Eddie Guerrero’s name alive, but we don’t need you.”
Rey Mysterio was inducted into the 2023 class of the WWE Hall of Fame. During his speech at the ceremony, Mysterio made sure to thank Eddie Guerrero for everything he did for his career, noting that Eddie was his best friend.
Since Guerrero passed away in 2005, Rey has continued to honor his memory in a variety of ways, including his lowrider entrance at WrestleMania 39 with Eddie’s signature theme song.
Speaking on a virtual signing with Captain’s Corner, Chavo Guerrero took some playful jabs at Rey Mysterio for these ongoing tributes to his uncle. Leaning into his heel character and claiming that the family was tired of Mysterio leaning on their name, Chavo said:
“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,”
“I mean our gimmick, it was Los Guerreros’ gimmick, and come out to Los Guerreros’ “We Lie, We Cheat, We Steal,’ and everybody’s like, ‘Oh, yeah, keep Eddie’s memory alive,’ and I was like, no, dude. I’m tired of people, this is not a bitter thing, this is straight-up.”
“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.”
“So Rey Mysterio, I’m sorry that no one knows who Rey Mysterio Sr. is, and I’m sorry that you have to latch onto 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,”
When asked about a potential match against Mysterio at WWE WrestleMania 40, Guerrero continued to heel it up by responding:
“I don’t think Rey could hold a candle to me right now, to be honest [laughs].”
Rey and Dominik Mysterio have both mentioned Eddie Guerrero during the course of their ongoing rivalry on WWE TV. This has included Dom stating that he wished Eddie was his real father on the March 27 episode of Raw.
Rey Mysterio is set to face Damian Priest on the April 24 edition of WWE Raw.
