On August 12, 2012, Impact Wrestling goes extreme with Hardcore Justice. Coming off his huge debut, Chavo Guerrero has been thrust into a new feud with Kid Kash and Gunner. With Hernandez at his side, Chavo takes on the two men and now at the men involved:
A 9 year long member of TNA, Hernandez is an accomplished veteran as well as a 3-time TNA World Tag Team Champ. As such he is no stranger to tag teams, evidenced by his time with LAX and his teaming with Matt Morgan. With this experience, Hernandez will be a useful asset to Chavo against Gunner and Kash. Don’t let his appearance fool you, this big man is extremely agile in the ring and proves that big men can fly. Out of respect for the Guerrero family, Hernandez did not stand around and watch Chavo get assaulted. He came to his side in his time of need and now stands with him.
The newest addition to the TNA roster, Chavo comes from the famous and well-known Guerrero wrestling family. Even at 41, Chavo proved he can still go in the ring and will definitely be a major player in TNA. Just like Hernandez, Chavo is no stranger to tag teams most famously teaming with his uncle, Eddie Guerrero forming Los Guerreros.
A veteran of 4 different major promotions including TNA, Kash has honed his skills in numerous rings. Just like Chavo, he can still go at the tender age of 43. A former 2-time NWA World Tag Team Champ, just like Hernandez and Chavo, Kash can work well in a tag team. With experience in mixed martial arts, as well his normal high-flying style, Kash alone is a force to be reckoned with.
A member of TNA’s younger roster, Gunner came up from being a simple security guard, became a former TV Champ to even defeating the Icon Sting. No stranger to tag teams, Gunner now aligns himself with Kid Kash. A big man himself, Gunner’s strength should be one of the deciding factors in the match. Expect a lot of power moves and Gunner going after Chavo in order to dominate the smaller man.
On July 26, the highly anticipated Chavo Guerrero finally debuted. Feeding off the fans, Chavo talked about the legacy and encompassing nature of the Guerrero family. The legendary family has wrestled all over the world in numerous promotions, sans one: Impact Wrestling.
Chavo proclaimed he was here to beat the best which Impact has. He declared that it’s time for Chavo to become a champion in Impact Wrestling.
Kid Kash with a microphone in hand and accompanied by Gunner came out to interrupt the debuting Chavo. Kash would go on to insult the legacy of the Guerrero family. Kash would go on to mention Chavo’s uncle and the great Eddie Guerrero but not in name, citing him as a “great wrestler.” From there Kash turned the tirade on Chavo’s father stating:
“Your father, Chavo Sr. an amazing legendary wrestler! Where’s he at? Why is he not here? Is it because he’s old? Is his back given out? Is his knees gone, or…or is he just too drunk?”
Unable to take the verbal slander by Kid Kash, Chavo snapped and attacked Kash. Yet the numbers game would take a toll and Chavo looked to be in trouble until a savior arose. From the back came the big man Hernandez to the aid of Chavo.
With Hernandez at his side, the two men were able to beat back Gunner and Kash. Hernandez sending out Gunner with a clothesline and Chavo dropkicking Kash out the ring.
The next week, it was announced that Chavo would face Kash in the ring. Kash took to twitter to talk a bit of trash:
Chavo would reply with:
In his first match in Impact Wrestling, Chavo would go on to defeat Kid Kash. The alliances were solidified with Hernandez in Chavo’s corner and Gunner in Kash’s.
And now the four men face off for the first time in the same ring. Now, no stipulation has been added to this match yet and I really hope there is one.
I’d like for it to be a ladder match or something high-risk, since all competitors sans Gunner have been known to go up top even Hernandez. Yet since there is already a ladder match taking place, I doubt TNA would make this one a ladder match as well.
A stipulation should be added though, in my opinion, since this is the night TNA goes hardcore, another example of this being WWE going extreme once each year with their Extreme Rules pay-per-view, I believe it could possibly be a No Disqualification match, or I even daresay a Monster’s Ball match.
Regardless if a stipulation is added, this should be a good match to see. Maybe not Match of the Night, but I think it will impress many.
All four men can definitely work in the ring and the teams are similar yet different. Each one features a big man: Hernandez/Gunner and a smaller agile man: Kash/Chavo.
No doubt you will see the two equals face off such as big man vs big man, and cruiserweight vs cruiserweight.
I’m going to give the win to Chavo here simply because TNA is putting a lot of support behind him. A huge debut and a lot of hype so far, TNA wouldn’t have him lose.
I doubt the feud will end here though after a singles match and a tag team match. Expect to see Kash and Gunner more in the future of Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez.
