A Tragic Anniversary

By November 12, 2006

Follow me on:

November 13, 2005 is a date that will forever be etched in the memory of every wrestling fan. That is the tragic day that Eddie Guerrero passed away. In honor of the great memories he has provided every wrestling fan, I would like to take this opportunity to celebrate the life of "Latino Heat."

Didn’t Eddie die because of the chair to the head by Kennedy – I noticed Kennedy was gone for awhile after that but then came back – I would really like to know the truth and the connection to the Kennedy/Guerrero match the night before – thanks

As the story goes Eddie died because of heart failure due to the irreversable damage the addictions did on his body.

The chair shot had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Eddie’s death. He died of heart failure.

eddie died from heart failure and drugs..it had nothing to do with kennedy chair shot

(11) ginger says:

Eddie died of Heart Failure…Period. WWE and his family stated that his Heart failed due to his PAST HISTORY of drug abuse and also him working out extremely hard to get his body back in shape. Eddie lived life to the extreme both ways, but I believe he was/is a good man. Viva La Raza…Eddie. I also believe Chris Benoit was a good man that had a lot of trouble and pain. But, Eddie’s death and Chris’ death should NOT be compared. Two different reasons entirely. R.I.P. To Eddie and Chris; You both will be forever missed. Heaven has a good Wrestling Team now!

(12) Dhruv Benoit says:

Chris and Eddie were the best, professional wrestling ever got.It surprises me that a great wrestler like chris became world champion only once in WWE.Anyway Chris and Eddie will remain the greatest and my favourite forever.RIP Eddie, RIP Chris

(14) Guerrero for life says:

the chairshot was fake. he died because of heart failure and the drug abuse in his past years.

December 24, 2008 at 8:13 pm
(15) Guerrero says:

The chair shot was fake, first of all. Eddie died because of drugs from his teen years and heart failure. Viva La Raza. Can you feel the heat? Latino Heat!!!

(22) HIPPIE says:

I met Eddie about 12 yrs ago with my then 4 yr old daughter at an amusement park. He took time from his own family to sit and talk to my daughter. He was a great person and is sorely missed Rest in Peace Eddie.

He seemed to be pretty smarter than the rest always using pranks.

(24) chris ahrens says:

I have always known of the behind the scene problems in wrestling but I never would have guessed how big of a problem it really is. I have been a fan for 30 yrs. now and I find it just appalling that atleast 114 wrestlers have passed away at such young ages. I mean I’m only 35 and most died younger than me and seemed to be in much better shape than me. It is crazy that so many of them died from suicide or drug overdoses accidental or not and also heart failure. I just gone done watching the ROCK’S return on Mon. night Raw but I think is will be the last the I ever watch any wrestling again. I can’t believe I just wrote that but I don’t want my 8 son watching this anymore and looking up to these people.And I know it is all about $$$$$$$$ like Vince would say “it’s just business.” Well, I don’t agree, this is peoples lives and families we are talking about.

Off Course the WWE Would Put All The Blame On The Superstar . Its To The Extreme amount Put On Them By The Corperation in which they work for wwe is known for killin there superstars nothing is new

(26) Jim says:

Eddie may be in Wrestler’s Heaven but that POS Chris Benoit will never be after killing his wife and son. No man who kills his family should go to Heaven.

(27) Johnelew says:

Wow, Jim… What bible did you read? You get to pick who goes to heaven now? Lol,,, the bible I read said judge not lest ye be judged… So do you want others deciding if you get to go to heaven? No one knows what problems led Chris to what he did… And the slides taken of his brain show that the steroid use did major damage to his brain and that could have led to a total disconnect from the rationality you might think a perso. That gets to go to heaven might show… I think that anyone that had a mental deficiency at the time of death, may very well have the mercy of god on his/her side… You better hope so… You may have one right now! It is horrible that our heroes don’t see the toll that giving us what we love to see takes on their bodies, families and lives… God bless all,who go out and opt their all on the line for us and for those that have fallen, I salute you… Rest in Peace
