It was fun while it lasted. AEW has built up an impressive roster over its still rather short existence. The promotion has a nice mixture of rookies, established named and veterans, which add up to quite the entertaining lineup. Sometimes you need some more well known names to help boost up the younger ones, though AEW is going to be losing one such older name for the time being.

Last week on AEW Rampage, Andrade El Idolo attacked his associate Chavo Guerrero, leaving him to be taken out by Pac. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the angle was designed to write Guerrero off of AEW television as he will be returning to work as the wrestling coordinator on the NBC series Young Rock. Guerrero was always scheduled to leave soon after All Out but will be back when Young Rock finishes filming its second season.

Guerrero certainly is a star. Check out some of his better moments from around the wrestling world:

Opinion: This isn’t the biggest surprise as it was clear that Guerrero was being written off given the beating he took on Rampage. At the same time, there is not much of a reason to have him around, as El Idolo can speak well enough on his own and has a translator in the first place. I’m not sure what Guerrero is going to do when he gets back, but hopefully it is something better suited for him.

What did you think of Guerrero’s time in AEW? What should he do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
