Remembering Eddie Guerrero - The Charismatic Legend of Wrestling
Eddie Guerrero was a Mexican-American professional wrestler who competed in various wrestling promotions, including the WCW and the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWE).
Guerrero was born on October 9, 1967, in El Paso, Texas, to a wrestling family. His father, Gory Guerrero, was a wrestling legend in Mexico and the United States.
Eddie began his wrestling career in 1986, wrestling in various promotions in Mexico and Japan before joining WCW in 1989.
Guerrero was known for his high-flying, technical wrestling style, and his ability to connect with audiences through his charismatic personality.
He held numerous championships throughout his career, including the WCW United States Championship and the WWE Championship.
Guerrero was beloved by fans for his "Latino Heat" persona and his catchphrase, "I lie, I cheat, I steal."
Unfortunately, Eddie Guerrero passed away on November 13, 2005, at the age of 38. He was found dead in his hotel room in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The cause of death was determined to be acute heart failure, which was later attributed to past drug and alcohol abuse.
