Modern wrestlers are equivalent to the gladiators of ancient Rome. These demigods around the square attract a lot of attention from a lot of annoying fans who expect nothing more than canned food and free violence. They say that in order to increase it in the world of wrestling, you need to prove yourself worthy. One of the things that attracts a lot of people to these famous people is their unique ability to captivate the audience with their stories. One of the best in the business was Eduardo Gori Guerrero Llanes, known to his fans as Edin.
Eddie made his WWF debut as a villain known as the Latin-speaking Latin Warrior, who fought for China’s fans, whom he affectionately called “Mamatsita.” He would later win the European Championship against Chris Jer Ericho, with a little help from China. The two would continue to work as a team and proved to be quite popular among the fans. The couple even “engaged” for a while while it was cold when Latino Heat was caught taking a shower with two other women, saying: “Two Machakita are better than one.”
In November 2001, Eddie was arrested for driving under the influence and later released from the WWF. He will work on his own before his first wrestling debut in 2002. He will later win the Van Dam International Intercontinental Championship.
This time, Eddie captivated the audience with his charisma and brand brilliance. The audience would be forever filled with the star’s murmurs, from bringing his brilliantly adapted low-end cyclists to the ring to his ever-famous battle cry, the Viva La Raza. He also entertained Eddie with his “lie, cheat, steal” tactic to win the game. He was always creative enough, even fooling the referee that his opponent hit him with a steel chair to disqualify his victory. Whether he was playing the villain or the hero, he always included the tactic of lying, cheating and stealing.
It was in 2004 that Guerrero won the coveted title at the New White against Brock Lesnar. He would later defend his Wresttlemania XX title against Kurt Kurt. It was a great victory when he celebrated in the ring with his old friend and friend Chris Benoit, who won the World Heavyweight Championship that night.
Unfortunately, Eddie’s personal life was not very rosy. He was known to be addicted to painkillers and alcohol. This addiction caused great damage to his family members, and even separated from his wife, Vicky, for some time. They later reconciled and renewed their covenants. Vicky later adopted his daughter, Kylie, who was born to another woman with whom Eddie had a brief affair.
The tragedy occurred on November 13, 2005, when Eddie was found unconscious in his hotel room in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was sentenced to death when paramedics rushed to the scene. Earlier this week, Raw and SmackDown announced that they would pay tribute to the late Eddie Guerrero. Most of the wrestlers wore armchairs with the initials “E.G”. during those shows. Some of the wrestlers, such as Ray Mistero and Chavo Guerrero, dedicated their games to him.
In April 2006, Eddie will be transferred to the Wrestling Hall of Fame by Ray Chavo Guerrero, Misterio and Chris Benoit. That night, Vicky Guerrero was honored. Now, the Latino atrocity may be gone, but his spirit continues to live on in many of his fans.
