November 13 2005 will be a day that myself and millions of other wrestling fans will never forget. It was a normal Sunday and before I headed off to bed I thought you know I’d check the internet… I opened up MySpace and say page upon page of R.I.P. posts about eddie guerrero. I thought it was some sick hoax, but headed over to WWE.com and saw the top story was that Eddie had passed away.

This broke me, seriously before 2005 I many family members pass away, which included my favourite uncle being killed in June of ‘05 and not once did I cry at the news of their deaths or at their funerals but hearing the passing of Eddie Guerrero I wept uncontrollably. I was two months into my first year of college and I didn’t turn up to class till January. I just couldn’t stop crying, to this day I still don’t know why, but since Novemeber 13th 2005 I really became somewhat emotionally unstable.

Eddie was a guy I looked up to a lot. Someone who overcame a lot of personal demons in his life whether it be drugs, alcohol, you know, he found a way to power through. I remember buying the documentary WWE did just before his passing called “Cheating Death, Stealing Life: The Eddie Guerrero Story" and one thing that always stuck with me is what Eddie said towards the end

"I’m ashamed of what I did. But I’m not ashamed of what I’ve done to correct those mistakes"

The guy was well rspected all over the world from the years of wrestling in Mexico, Japan, North America, Europe, you name a place and he wrestled there. The man gave everything, every night, and I was lucky enough to meet him in 2005 and he was so humble and gracious with his time, when I spoke to him. I’ve met alot of pro-wrestlers (and just celebrities in general) I don’t ask for autographs I just like saying hi and go on my way — sometimes they are ok with a quick conversation and sometimes they come off as complete asshats — but Eddie was great with me and that’s something I’m never going to forget.

So today marks the eighth  year the wrestling community lost a larger than life character and I still get emotionally watching old Eddie matches and I can’t even listen to Johnny Cash’s 'Hurt' or Three Doors Down’s 'Here Without You' without sheding a few tears because they were used on the video packages of the 14th November Monday Night RAW and 18th November Friday Night Smackdown! celebrating Eddie’s life.

Like this parody website Kayfabe News.com said in their article titled “Eddie Guerrero returns after eight years of “playing possum”

"Kayfabe News sincerely wishes this story would come true."

I will miss every single pro-wrestler that I grew up watching because they were my heroes but I will miss Eduardo Gory “Eddie” Guerrero Llanes the most.

Viva la Raza!
