In the latest edition of DDP Snake Pit, WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page was thrilled to remember his friend Eddie Guerrero. The two shared the ring several times in WCW in the late 1990s. DDP said: "Eddie Guerrero had an extraordinary talent and has improved a lot over the years.
He managed to get the best out of his opponents, myself included. He helped make me a top performer. I will never forget the very heated challenges against him, they seemed so realistic." He then added: "Few athletes have had the charisma of him in the history of this business.
Jake Roberts, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels come to mind. Eddie is part of the elite, there is no doubt about it." Some time ago, former WWE referee Brian Hebner paid tribute to Guerrero: "His character won over fans because there was a cultural element to him.
Eddie was a huge attraction especially to the Latino audience, having helped WWE break into that market. The situation is very different today and perhaps Eddie would not even reach the world title. I don't think he would have been happy.
He would have been successful because we are talking about a champion, but he would not have been at ease in 2022."
Eddie in WWE
Eddie Guerrero is considered one of the best wrestlers of all ages, having fought in the most important American wrestling federations and having made millions of fans fall in love around the world.
Eddie was one of the most charismatic performers ever and, despite playing a heel character in WWE, he managed to get into people's hearts thanks to his innate charisma. On November 13, 2005, he was found dead by his nephew Chavo in his hotel room in Minneapolis, the city where an episode of SmackDown was to be held.
WWE inducted him fully into the Hall of Fame the following year. His name appears on the list of the 50 best superstars in the history of the company, a legitimate recognition for a timeless champion.
