Chavo Guerrero makes AEW debut as Andrade El Idolo's consultant


Chavo Guerrero made his AEW debut as Andrade El Idolo's executive consultant on tonight's Fyter Fest episode of Dynamite. 

During an in-ring interview with Tony Schiavone, Andrade stated that he had a surprise for the crowd tonight. Schiavone then introduced Guerrero. 

Guerrero said that he heard AEW is the place to be and that he was blown away by all the talent he saw backstage. Guerrero then said with all due respect to the talented men and women in AEW, none are as talented as Andrade. 

The Death Triangle trio of PAC, Penta El Zero Miedo and Rey Fenix came to the stage with Alex Abrahantes. Guerrero, Andrade, PAC and Abrahantes had a verbal exchange where Andrade said that Penta and Fenix should come work for him rather than working for PAC, a request that Death Triangle rejected. The segment ended with Death Triangle hitting the ring and a pull-apart by referees. 

Guerrero, 50, is a veteran with international experience. He has wrestled for WCW, NJPW, TNA, Lucha Underground, AAA and a variety of independent promotions over a career spanning more than two decades. He had a lengthy run with WWE beginning in 2001 after his contract was purchased in the sale of WCW to WWE. He was granted his WWE release in June 2011. 

Guerrero has wrestled sporadically in 2020 and 2021, with his only high-profile matches being on two Good Brothers' Talk 'N Shop A Mania PPV events in 2020 and a Josh Barnett's Bloodsport PPV in April 2021.
