Barbie asks Chavo if their were any Mexican wrestlers that never made it back in Chavo’s day. Chavo says their was plenty of talent who didn’t make it. Chavo believed that most guys weren’t able to adapt to the American style. Chavo really puts over Rey Mysterio Jr. as being able to succeed.
Chavo really lashes into Mil Mascaras but says that he is a friend of his. Chavo says that Mil was the first guy to put himself ahead of the other talent and demand a plane trip and not caring about the rest of the boys. Mil would also get all the woman. Chavo continued to say that he had the perfect gimmick and looked great. However, Mil would always do the same moves and that is why he doesn’t draw anymore.
