As I was browsing videos on YouTube in one afternoon. I stumbled upon videos of the legendary wrestler Eddie Guerrero. Eddie who is a part of the famed Guerrero wrestling family of Latino heritage which composed of his father Gory, his brothers Chavo Sr., Mando, and Hector, and his nephew and once tag team partner Chavo Jr. was a former WWE Champion, a former United States Champion, a former Intercontinental Champion, a former European Champion, a multiple Tag Team Champion. He has done it all in his career.

Despite the accomplishments that he had in his career, he is well known for his trait of “lie, cheat and steal”. as Eddie uses these tactics to his advantage in matches known as “The Smokin’ Gun” where he uses a foreign object to his advantage. One of the times he used it which was hitting the steel chair to the mat and tossing it to his opponent and then Eddie lies down to the floor and pretend that he got hit by his opponent with the steel chair, and the time he pretended to be hurt and use it against his opponent. His Latino Heat desire has captivated fans during his entire career. His promos of lying, cheating and stealing things from other wrestlers were timeless and funny to watch. As well of course, he drives to the ring with his trademark low rider with all the hydraulics installed on to the car to the comfortable seats. Whether he was the good guy or not, he is one of the most charismatic wrestlers that ever lived. He will always be ready to nail his opponents with his trademark “Three Amigos” (three vertical suplexes) to the Frog Splash and to the Lasso from El Paso.

Unfortunately, his life was cut short. On November 13, 2005, Guerrero died in his hotel room in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the age of 38. In the following days, the episodes of WWE Raw and WWE SmackDown were dedicated to the life of Eddie Guerrero from his humble beginnings in El Paso, Texas to his family life and most importantly his illustrious and decorated wrestling career. The following year, he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his nephew Chavo Guerrero Jr. and his friends Rey Mysterio and Chris Benoit.It has been almost 7 years since Eddie passed away, but his memory will live on to his many fans all over the world. He will always be remembered as the man who lies, cheats and steals and is honest about it. You can never tell if he’s still alive right now when he fights the new guys like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Alberto del Rio, The Miz and other wrestlers out there or maybe get involved in a Rock-Cena like once in a lifetime matchup. I’m sure up in the heaven’s, he has a great grin on his face.

“Life turns on a dime. have no idea what tomorrow will bring… sure life would be a lot easier if we knew what was going to happen. You’ve got to live by faith one day at a time.”  – Eddie Guerrero
