WWE Tests Australia’s Largest Wrestler, Chavo Guerrero Update
— Chavo Guerrero’s first post-WWE appearances have been announced as he will be competing at World Wrestling Council’s Aniversario events in Puerto Rico.
On July 15 in Ponce, he will team up with WWE developmental talent Orlando Colon in a tag team match against Los Fugitivos de la Calle. The follow night in Bayamon, he will square off against WWE Superstar Primo in a singles match.
Also advertised to appear are former WWE Superstar Carlito, TNA wrestler Abyss, TNA Knockout Sarita, former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Steve Corino, former TNA referee Shane Sewell and former WWE developmental wrestler Black Pain.
— WWE officials have been on the look out for grandiose wrestlers in recent months—regardless of body shape or ability. Josh Taylor, who stands at 6’10” and 385 pounds, is the latest voluminous grappler to be examined by WWE as he tried out for company officials prior to Friday’s live event in Sydney. He is billed as the largest wrestler in Australia.
Professional Wrestling Alliance Queensland co-owner Andrew Venables said Taylor is Australia’s best chance of success overseas. “He is the heart and soul of wrestling in Australia,” Venables said. “If he shows them half the dedication as he has locally then he will make it.”
