Ex-WWE Star Says The Company “Rewrites Wrestling History”
Former ECW Champion Chavo Guerrero has accused WWE of rewriting history to suit its own agenda when it comes to its Hall of Fame.
Speaking on WrestleBinge, Chavo Guerrero contrasted WWE’s Hall of Fame to that of the NFL and says that the sports entertainment giant will only consider those it’s still amicable with:
“WWE rewrites — and this is not a bitter thing, just saying what it is — they rewrite wrestling history to really benefit WWE. Let’s say the NFL … the NFL, I don’t care if a player is in a lawsuit with the NFL, or there’s an issue with the player if that player is deserving of being in the Hall of Fame, they put him in the Hall of Fame.
“WWE will only put wrestlers in the Hall of Fame that they are still on good terms with. It’s not like they’re putting people … well some people turn them down, of course. But WWE rewrites wrestling history a little bit to benefit them. That’s just … everybody knows that. Anybody who’s in the business kind of sees that.”
Chavo Guerrero recently caught many off-guard with his inflammatory comments directed towards Rey Mysterio over the continued tributes paid to Eddie Guerrero. Guerrero also noted that he thought Mysterio’s WrestleMania 39 entrance was “almost” taking the tributes too far.
Chao Guerrero’s uncle Eddie Guerrero was inducted into the Hall of Fame back in 2006 just a few short months after his tragic passing. Rey Mysterio has his own induction ahead of WrestleMania 39 with Mexican wrestling legend Konnan inducting the former World Heavyweight Champion.
