It doesn’t appear as if Chavo Guerrero has any plans on slowing down anytime soon.

Former WCW and WWE star Chavo Guerrero has spoken out against any potential retirement rumors as the third-generation star shot the notion down.

Guerrero explained that it simply comes down to the case of ‘Guerrero’s never retire’, as he told when appearing on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast:

“Guerreros never retire. When I see Ric Flair’s retirement match I’m like ‘which one is this?’ You just don’t ever really retire. I don’t think I’ll ever retire.”

“I wrestle three to four times a year now. It’s not big WrestleMania matches, I know where I’m at, but I keep myself in shape at all times, so that any match that I have, guys still say ‘what the hell dude you’re outworking all of us!’ and I just say ‘I don’t have to do that three hundred days a year anymore so I can do that.'”

Guerrero had a successful run in WCW from 1996 until 2001, and is a two-time Cruiserweight Champion as well as a former Tag Champion, alongside Corporal Cajun. Guerrero would then sign with WWE in 2001 and would claim the WWE Cruiserweight Title four times as well as the Tag Titles (with uncle Eddie Guerrero) on two separate occasions before departing the company in 2011.

Chavo Guerrero would join All Elite Wrestling in 2021, where was the on-screen ‘executive consultant’ for AEW star, Andrade El Idolo before taking time off to film ‘Young Rock’ in Australia, but Guerrero never returned to the company and was subsequently removed from the AEW roster page.
