Maybe he missed the memo? Wrestling is not exactly like other sports, as the show just kind of keeps going. With no off season, there is not exactly a beginning or end to anything. Sometimes wrestlers will stick around longer than others, but it can be very surprising to see someone leave a promotion out of nowhere. That seems to be the case again, with the wrestler himself being surprised.
Chavo Guerrero debuted in AEW in 2021 and served as Andrade El Idolo’s manager before their association ended in September of that year. Guerrero left the company to continue his work on Young Rock Season 2, with the expectation that he would be back in the company once filming ended. However, Guerrero has since removed Guerrero from their roster page. According to Wrestlinginc.com, Guerrero sent and then deleted a tweet showing his surprise, saying:
“That’s news to me! I guess having @TonyKhan telling me to go film Young Rock Season 2, & my job will be waiting for me when I’m done, didn’t mean much”
Guerrero has since posted another tweet, saying the release was news to him and not denying the news.
News to me. ????? RT @AEWmetrics: Reporting a fact:

Opinion: That isn’t a great thing to see and I’m not sure what happened here. I can understand AEW changing its mind about keeping Guerrero, but they probably should have let him know that they were going in a different direction. I’m sure Guerrero can find something else, but it isn’t exactly a great look for AEW to just drop him and move on without letting him know.
What do you think of AEW’s move? Do you want Guerrero back in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
