The Mountain Goats – “The Legend of Chavo Guerrero”

The great (or sad?) part is, WWF interviews really used to play out like this.

Following in the footsteps of classics like The Wrestling Album and Piledriver, California’s Mountain Goats released a wrestling-themed record, earlier this year: Beat The Champ.

In this video for the album’s opening track, Mountain Goat John Darnielle gets into trouble in the ring, and Chavo Guerrero himself steps in to save the day with a crushing body slam.

Fun facts about Chavo Guerrero: He was the oldest ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion, and he co-starred with Henry Winkler (The Fonz!) in The One And Only, as a wrestler called Indian Joe.
