RIP, Eddie

(warning: raw post)

I’ve been watching Wrestling since before WrestleMania 1, but I started falling out of interest a few years ago.

Eddie Guerrero was found dead today. Was he a huge star like Hogan or Austin or Flair? Nah. Was he a nobody jobber? Nah. He was a typical pro-wrestler who made it. Mid-card with occasional pushes here and there. But he had tremendous in-ring skills and a silky-smooth in-ring persona that made you love him, and love to hate him. (God, that’s cliched)

Everybody is dying…I don’t know how the average person doesn’t kill themselves by the time they reach 75, from being depressed from seeing friends die, family die, their favorite (and even hated) entertainment personalities die, from reading about senseless tragedies, from seeing the horrors of war…

anyway..

Eddie Guerrero, 1967-2005

(yeah…1967…)

  • We found out this morning. I’m in shock and sort of numb. Hard to describe. It’s nice that Raw and Smackdown are both doing tribute shows. He was so young. So many wrestlers are passing away. It’s a hard life. Even if they choose it, it’s still hard. Hope he rests in piece.

  • I can’t say I follow the modern day circus called Wrestling (I did at one time many years ago), but this is a growing and distrurbing trend among Professional Wrestlers passing away around 40ish.

    Before Congress is going to waste my tax dollars investigating Baseball, I think it’s high time that they investigate Vince McMahon again for Drugs and Steroids. I know they tried once, but failed.

    I mention this because this brought back memories of Ken Caminiti. He passed away around the same age under similar circumstances. Caminiti – you got it was a Steroiid issue.

    The worst part is that this guy had fans and most importantly a family that loved him. From reading about him, he had a lot going for him. What a shame.

  • Steroids isn’t much of a factor in wwe wrestling anymore. Vince Mcmahon actually doesn’t allow steroids. Eddie Guerrero’s autopsy results were released and he died from an enlarged heart, mostly do to previous drug and alcohol use. Combined with a tough work schedule and working out a lot his heart couldn’t take it anymore. Guerrero did kick the drug and alcohol abuse but it caused to much damage to his body.
