Remembering Eddie


R.I.P EDDIE GUERRERO - 1967-2005
They had a fantastic show dedicated to him on Monday. Jen and I were pretty teary-eyed the whole show (well... more than teary-eyed). His death surprised everyone. They all were pretty torn up... and it was a great show. Everyone did their very best that night. I wish I had recorded it... great show. spoke with Eddie’s widow, Vickie Guerrero: “It was heart failure. It was from his past – the drinking and the drug abuse. They found signs of heart disease. She (the examiner) said that the blood vessels were very worn and narrow, and that just showed all the abuse from the scheduling of work and his past. And Eddie just worked out like crazy all the time. It made his heart grow bigger and work harder and the vessels were getting smaller, and that’s what caused the heart failure. He went into a deep sleep.

As soon as they saw his heart, they saw the lining of his heart already had the heart disease. There was no trauma, and Eddie hadn’t hurt himself in any way. It answered a lot of questions. I knew Eddie wasn’t feeling very good for the last week. He was home and kept saying he wasn’t feeling good and we thought it was just “road tired.” So we thought he just had to rest. It answered a lot of my questions, too, because he was just so exhausted. She said it was normal because the heart was working so hard."

They'll be showing the SMACKDOWN show tonight... they're dedicating it to him tonight as well.
