Chavo Guerrero Jr On Training The Cast Of Glow And How Long He Had, Growth Of Women's Wrestling

Chavo Guerrero Jr. spoke to iNews about his wrestling trainer role with the Netflix series, Glow. Here are some of the highlights:

Starting with the basics:

"I just assumed everybody knew the rules of wrestling. [Laughs] After about a week, somebody went to pin the other person, and was like 'how do we do it?' I ended up stopping practice, and I had to explain 'this is how you win' and 'when you go outside [the ring] you have a 10-count to get back in'. "To make sure they were safe, I had to build their trust. After I established that 'I'll never make you do anything that I don't feel 100% confident that you can do', they were down for anything."


How long he had to train the cast:

"We had five days a week from about five weeks before the show even started filming. I had them in the ring for eight hours a day. I wasn't teaching them to have a WrestleMania match, I was teaching them to look like they knew what they were doing on camera."

The growth of women's wrestling:

"It's not just women's wrestling; it's women empowerment right now. Five or six years ago, women weren't even allowed to fight in [mixed martial arts competition] UFC, and now you have Ronda Rousey, the biggest name in UFC, drawing the biggest numbers. We all have a mother, a wife, or a sister who would whup any of our butts. We all know they're a lot stronger than we are, so now that Hollywood's writing about it, I love it."
