Vickie Guerrero has revealed the issue with her AEW run, and why she left the company after two years.
The former WWE general manager spent years under Vince McMahon, as a general manager of Smackdown and valet to stop stars, like Edge and Dolph Ziggler.
She was one of the top heels in the company during this time. Just an utterance of her two-word catchphrase (“Excuse Me!”) earned nuclear heat from the crowd, who could not wait to see her get her comeuppance.
She signed for AEW in 2020, joining in the Summertime. She was the manager for former AEW Women’s Champion Nyla Rose, although her presence on TV was not as strong as she would have hoped.
While doing a recent interview with Denise Salcedo, Vickie Guerrero revealed why she elected to leave AEW, and the issues she had working for the promotion.
“My character wasn’t progressed for the three years, and opportunities weren’t given. I just felt like, for me, as a professional decision, I needed to go somewhere else where I’m able to be the character that I want to be and to be appreciated for the work that I can present inside the ring.
Even though I’m gonna miss managing Nyla and Marina, three years is good. I tried it, I bought the t-shirt, I get to say I was there, and I’m ready to move on and bet on myself. So with the way doors have opened, I’m very grateful, and I know that AEW’s gonna be very successful, and they’re gonna do great stuff in the future. I just want to take a different road.”
