Chavo Guerrero Opens Up About TNA Cost Cutting Measures, Going Live, And The Fans of TNA

Josh Isenberg

Impact WrestlingTNA Wrestler Chavo Guerrero was recently interviewed by Scott Fishman of the Miami Herald to talk about his first year in TNA, changes and criticisms in the company and how he continues to keep going in professional wrestling. Below are some highlights of the interview.

On TNA going live and the roster's response:

“When TNA went live, it was either going to take off or it was not going to take off,” Guerrero said. “It’s a crucial time right now in TNA, and I really hope it takes off because it’s better for the business, better for the wrestlers, better for the fans, better for everybody. They got the right players in place, but they have to tweak it all…You can’t beat our wrestlers. Our roster is incredible.

On TNA's recent criticisms:

"The last few months TNA has been met with criticism for recent departures and other behind the scenes scuttlebutt. Amid the constant scrutiny, Guerrero believes that’s when your professionalism is tested."

"I’m going to go out there and bust my #$% no matter what because I do it for the fans,” Guerrero said. “The fans who pay money to see us, they deserve good matches and for us to go out there to tear it down. So that’s where my motivation comes in. As far as the releases go, that’s the company protecting themselves and their best interest. No matter how much you think wrestling is family, deep down it’s a business."

On TNA's decision to cut Pay-Per-Views:

“I think it’s great,” Guerrero said. “I like the fact we went down to four pay-per-views. You see when you have 12 or 13 pay-per-views a year, it’s watered down. Unless it’s a big one like a WrestleMania or something like that, a lot of them are watered down."
