Guerrero Jr. speaks candidly. 

Over WrestleMania 39 weekend, Rey Mysterio was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and the following night, he competed against his son, Dominik Mysterio, at WrestleMania. As a part of Rey’s entrance, he rode in the passenger seat of a low rider that was driven by Snoop Dogg and he used Los Guerreros’ Lie, Cheat & Steal’ theme. 

Chavo Guerrero Jr. spoke about Rey several times during a virtual signing with Captain’s Corner. He first mentioned Mysterio in a joking manner and said Rey has been trying to be a Guerrero for a long time. He went on to add that Dominik might be a Guerrero and Rey’s wife, Angie, has Guerrero blood in her. 

He’s (Rey Mysterio) tried to be a Guerrero for a really long time (Chavo jokingly said). 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.

As Guerrero Jr. was reflecting on the feud he had with Rey in WWE, he expressed that him and his family are tired of people ‘prostituting’ the Guerrero name. 

Guerrero Jr. mentioned Rey coming out to the Los Guerreros theme and said him and Eddie worked hard to build the Guerrero name. The host brought up the idea of Chavo versus Rey at WrestleMania 40 and Chavo said Rey couldn’t hold a candle to him right now. 

I gotta tell you this, I just don’t understand why Rey Mysterio still has to — look, we all love Eddie (Guerrero). 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. 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?… I don’t think Rey could hold a candle to me right now to be honest (Chavo responded when the host mentioned the idea of him versus Rey at WrestleMania 40).

He would go on to comment on the idea of coming back to feud with Rey. Guerrero Jr. feels someone needs to help Dominik ‘get his heat back’. He does not think Grammy-Award winning artist Bad Bunny should be one-upping Dominik. 

Comment and let us know if you’d like to see that rivalry again (between myself & Rey Mysterio). 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… 

Someone’s gotta get Dom (Mysterio) his heat back, because Dom, he’s gotten beat. He’s doing so good but he got beat at WrestleMania. They’re spanking him, Bad Bunny’s beating him and I’m sorry, Bad Bunny, hey, I like your music and all that stuff but you shouldn’t have a guy who’s not a wrestler beating a wrestler. To me, it’s like, hmm. I get if it’s a celebrity host type thing but this is like a full match, full thing and I’m like, hey, Dom, you need to get your heat back but brother… You know, I know somebody (Guerrero Jr. smiled). 

Bad Bunny is returning to WWE television on April 24th. He was put through an announce table on the Raw after WrestleMania by Judgment Day’s Damian Priest.

I want to see Chavo Guerrero vs Rey Mystero at WrestleMani 40.

This doesn’t feel like an angle while also feeling like an angle LOL

It feels like Chavo is trying to make his own angle.
