Juice time? Last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw was the special Raw Legends edition, featuring a variety of wrestlers from years past making special appearances. This is something that WWE does from time to time and while its success rate may be hit and miss, you are almost always going to see someone you have not thought of in a bit. One name is not happy he was not thought of by WWE.
One of the issues with a legends show is where do you draw the line. There are so many people available for a show like this that you cannot invite everyone back and have to stop somewhere. Even this year, with so many names advertised, WWE struggled to either produce them or find time to get them on television in any meaningful way. Now a former champion is unhappy that he never had the chance.
This is a bit intense. Check out a former champion’s rant:
Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Juventud Guerrera has released a video complaining about how he was not invited to Raw Legends. Guerrera says that he changed the wrestling world forever and that if WWE wanted to get its audience back, they should have him return. Guerrera was a five time Cruiserweight Champion, having held the title twice in WWE and three times in WCW. He wrestled for WWE from June 2005 until January 2006.
Opinion: That’s Guerrera for you and I’m surprise he was that coherent. Guerrera is known for being over the top most of the time and that seems to be the case again here. He was certainly a talented wrestler in his time and still is today, but there are times where you get the impression that he might think a little too highly of himself. That might be the case here, and I’m not exactly surprised he didn’t make the cut.
