I don’t think he’d like it too much the way it is now, because it is hard for a young wrestler to get that seasoned experience. You can disguise it all you want with explosions and pyro and entrances, but when it comes down to it in the ring, it’s you and that other person. That’s it.

Guerrero is interviewed by Newsday.com. He discusses fans criticizing former WWE stars working in Lucha Underground.
If they couldn’t do that style, I would see the difference. If they pushed a guy with big name brand recognition who can’t do lucha libre, who is kind of just adding name value, I would see people getting upset. But you have a John Morrison, who can do things in the ring that a lot of even the Latino luchadors can’t. So it’s not like he’s a charity case.
