Chavo Guerrero was not happy when he found out that he was removed from the AEW roster page and revealed that Tony Khan kept ignoring him as he tried to contact him. Khan took the opportunity to respond to Chavo’s comments in a recent media event.
It was earlier reported that Chavo was unhappy that Khan ignored his messages regarding his AEW status. After returning from Australia, he was working on the Young Rock series. Tony registered his surprise, revealing that he missed only one message.
“I am going to call Chavo,” Tony Khan revealed. “To be honest, I was a little surprised because I only missed one message from him, and then he went to the media after he missed one message.
“I don’t want to say how much he got paid to be the stunt coordinator for Young Rock, but he got paid a huge amount of money. He asked if he could take time off and leave, and I said, he was not under contract. He was on a weekly deal. I said, ‘I would love to have you back, and I do like you a lot, and you did a great thing. We will make our plans going forward without him here.’”
Tony noted that AEW had done a lot of great stuff without Chavo since then. He also said that he has been busy with several shows in Orlando this week, but he would be giving Chavo a call.
“We went on and we’ve done a lot of great stuff, and I really liked him, he did great stuff. I definitely owe him a phone call, but I was a little surprised to hear that. I do like him a lot, Chavo could walk in here right now and I would be very pleasant with him. But when I saw that, it was kind of like a busy week as we have a show every day.
“Wednesday we did Dynamite and Elevation, then we shot Dark in Orlando, and then we shot Rampage live. To be fair when Chavo was here, all of this was crammed on Wednesday. So maybe he didn’t know I had such a busy week. But he did just reach out this week and I haven’t gotten back to him yet. I will talk to Chavo, it’s fair enough.”
The former Cruiserweight Champion had a brief stint in AEW, during which he served as the executive consultant of Andrade El Idolo. He was soon replaced by Jose, The Assistant.
