The payroll increases. There were a pair of debuts on AEW Dynamite: Fyter Fest Part 2 this week, with the first one being Nick Gage. Later in the show, another recognizable figure made his presence known, as Chavo Guerrero made his debut with the company.
During Andrade El Idolo’s segment with Tony Schiavone, Andrade announced that he had a major announcement for everyone. He announced that he had hired a new special consultant, and then brought out Chavo.

Chavo has had a wonderful career in the professional wrestling business. The nephew of the late Eddie Guerrero, Chavo has competed for World Championship Wrestling (WCW), World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment(WWF/WWE), Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), Lucha Underground (LU) and Nación Lucha Libre.
He is a former ECW World Champion in WWE and a six-time Cruiserweight Champion between both WWE and WCW. He has also achieved success in tag team wrestling, being a five-time world tag team champion – winning the WWE Tag Team Championship twice with Eddie Guerrero as Los Guerreros, the WCW World Tag Team Championship once with Corporal Cajun as the Misfits in Action, and the TNA World Tag Team Championship twice with Hernandez. Between WCW, WWE, and TNA, Guerrero has held a dozen total championships and one world championship.

I’ve always been a fan of his and I think that he has a lot of talent. My only issue is that AEW continues to rely too heavily on performers from other promotions and doesn’t focus on developing their own talent. That doesn’t work in the long run, as you have to have something to base your company around once the older superstars can’t go anymore, or the money runs out from paying established stars what they think they are worth.
