Eddie Guerrero

Eddie Guerrero is still missed in the world of professional wrestling. Ten years ago he suddenly died at a time in which he was finally hitting the level of popularity that he and his family named deserved. Since his death, he’s been inducted into multiple halls of fame throughout wrestling.

When thinking about Guerrero, it’s hard to pinpoint a “favorite” moment. He reached levels of fame in Mexico before moving to WCW to become one of the best heels in the sport, even though he wasn’t given the limelight during that run. Even his short run in ECW created some instant classics that should still be seen today.

Yet, it would be his move to the WWE in 2000 that would be the catalyst for him reaching this point of fame. During that time, he would continue his memorable matches against Rey Mysterio, while including the likes of John Cena, JBL and Brock Lesnar on his resume. It was during his time on the WWE roster that allowed the wrestling world to greatly appreciate his ability to deliver exciting and technical wrestling while telling a story with every facial expression.  When he won the world title in 2004 he reached a level that many didn’t expect, but fully appreciated one he was there.

Guerrero died at the age of 38 and left a lasting legacy. His nephew, Chavo Guerrero still gets chants of “Eddie” when in the ring and current star, Sasha Banks points to him as a reason why she’s performing today.
