Chavo Guerrero Reveals All Of His Lucha Underground Roles

Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio interviewed Lucha Underground and GLOW's Chavo Guerrero Jr. You can see highlights of the interview below, and the full interview at this link.

Returning to in-ring competition in Lucha Underground Season 4:
"I always love getting into the ring. A lot of stuff I am doing now is behind the camera. I do love that also. I actually have really grown to love how to create behind the camera. But, you know, you still have that itch every once in a while. So, I get to itch and scratch it every once in a while in Lucha Underground. So, I'll step back in the ring for a couple matches, I'll jump out and I'll do stuff behind the camera. (laughs) You know?"

On his official title at Lucha Underground:
"So, at Lucha Underground, I produce the show. In Hollywood, getting a producing credit, sometimes you introduce two people and you get a producing credit. And, sometimes, you're hands on everything! It seems like here at Lucha Underground, I'm hands on everything! Especially the first season. The first season, I was doing stuff with set design, costumes, involved in some writing, agenting, and still wrestling... Helping out the director and showing him how - A lot of these guys had never done wrestling and obviously, I had. After the first season, a lot of that went away because everyone picked it up so good. So, now I produce the show. My title? I guess I'm "Supervising Producer". That means I'm kind of supervising the other producers! (laughs) I'm still very hands on. Basically, the writers are writing stuff and I'm giving that to the wrestlers and translating to the wrestles. And, I'm involved in agenting amtches and calling matches, different interviews... I'm hands on a lot of things, to be honest. (laughs)"

On his take of the different approach of Lucha Underground:
"Man, I felt that wrestling had gotten a little stale. It became a lot of the same thing. You have WWE, basically the Coca Cola of wrestling, if you try to create another cola, you're just a knock-off. You're like an RC Cola! What I love is with Lucha Underground, we've created a whole new product - A whole new drink! And, we put something else out there. I'm just so proud of our product. I love it. I don't think you can touch our wrestling. You can't touch our production. I think we're the best wrestling on TV, to be honest."
