Vickie Guerrero has recently returned to wrestling as she is now the manager of former AEW Women’s World Champion Nyla Rose. This partnership formed at Fight for the Fallen just a couple of weeks ago. Guerrero had previously made appearances in the audience for AEW events and she spoke on her show, Excuse Me: The Vickie Guerrero Show, about the moment where she wanted to get back into the business.
“I think it was me being on [Chris Jericho’s cruise]. You’re surrounded by all the wrestling fans and you see the shows every night,” Vickie explained.
“Me being from where I’ve been with WWE, your brain starts ticking and you start getting ideas. And interviewing the women, most of them were babies at the time except for Penelope. We had ref Aubrey on the panel, Allie and they all sort of had their own storyline going.”
Through her interviews, Rose stood out to her and she started brainstorming on how she would love to work with her. Guerrero spent many years in WWE as both a General Manager and a manager for many talents.
“But I looked at Nyla during the podcast and I thought, man, she would be so much fun to manage. Despite mentioning it, and of course, she loved the idea. And of course, we teased the crowd from the cruise. We had good feedback, but of course, it had to go back to AEW and people had to discuss this. But that was my dream; I said, ‘Well God, if this is going to happen then it’s meant to be, and if not, then it’s okay’.”
“Now, my dream has come true. Nyla and I have some really cool ideas and stuff that we want to plan out for our storylines. There are a lot of women in AEW that we are going to be able to target and that will be the fun part of it.”
Her official debut at Fight for the Fallen already started off in a different manner over her time with WWE. One big change is she has entrance music, which she never had previously. Her ‘Excuse Me’ catchphrase seems to be staying, but she has a different presence about her. She does state that she wants to present a different gimmick and is focused on reinventing herself this time around.
“I don’t want to be the same character that was at WWE coming into AEW. It’s time for me to reinvent myself. I have a new roster and a, as they say, a new playground that’s gonna excite me to interact with the different people on the roster. I think that’s going to have me enjoy this a lot more. I forgot how exciting [it is], and the love I have for inside the ring… It has been a fun ride. I can’t wait for the next time I’m out there.”
