Tony Khan Responds To Chavo Guerrero Jr.’s Comments, Says He Definitely Owes Him A Phone Call
Following Sunday night’s AEW Revolution PPV, during the post show media scrum, All Elite Wrestling Owner Tony Khan decided to respond to recent comments made public by former employee Chavo Guerrero Jr.
Chavo recently came back from Australia after working on the set of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s show “Young Rock,” to find he was removed from the AEW Roster page online. Chavo took to social media claiming it was “news to me,” and proceeded to say that Tony Khan was ignoring his messages.
I am going to call Chavo,” Tony Khan said.
“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 stated that the company since continued and has done great things while Chavo was away. Tony continued that he had been extremely busy this past week while preparing for “Dynamite,” “Rampage”, and of course the “Revolution” PPV.
“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.”
