It might look odd to many of my visitors. But one of this child’s passions besides rain, and cartoons is WWE. Last night when I sat to watch RAW, I was shocked to know that Eddie is no more. Couldnt stop myself writing a piece on Eddie Amigo!
One of the most gifted WWE Superstars, Eddie Guerrero has passed away. His life packed more drama than most people could imagine. With wrestling running in his blood dating back to his father – the legendary Gory Guerrero, Eddie was consumed and obsessed by the sports entertainment since he was just a kid and had his first match with his nephew Chavo when they were 6 and 4. Hugely popular in his native country, Eddie was also one of the most conflicted and tortured souls to ever step foot in a WWE ring.
A near-death experience in a car crash should have been a warning sign that his lifestyle was out of control. But Guerrero took the incident as an indication that he was invincible, and lapsed into drug addiction. Incredibly, his story progresses to take further twists and turns, including a resilience that saw Guerrero pull himself back from the brink of self-destruction. His amazing tale doubles up as a fascinating look at the adverse effects fame can have on a top athlete. After the untimely passing of Eddie Guerrero, WWE and the entire sports-entertainment community is still reeling from the devastating loss of a champion.
The initial autopsy reports on Guerrero have come in. As per 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.
The guy who was not only as charismatic as possible, but lived life real “King Sie” inspired one and many with quotes from Bible. A fighter and entertainer who always believed “the show must go on” passed at 38 (-only! Was it the time? Or does it prove that great things always comes in small doses?)
