Eddie Guerrero was an impactful Superstar

WWE fandom knew Eddie Guerrero as an unpredictable Superstar. No one could say what his next move would be. His favourite mantra was ‘lying, cheating, stealing,’ and he would use it in almost every match to secure the victory.

Guerrero had the ability to trigger several emotions in his audience at once. Furthermore, he had the power to capture the admiration and attention of every individual in the arena.

Guerrero started his journey in ECW, where he quickly gained popularity after winning the ECW World Television Championship. Soon afterwards, WCW arrived with their contract and Eddie had the chance to shine like never before.

WWE quickly realized that Guerrero will do what it takes to get what he wants. This included fooling the referee, tricking the opponent, and other clever ruses.

While his untimely demise put a dent in WWE’s history, he left an amazing impact within the industry. His battle roar was “Viva La Raza” but the WWE fans keep shouting “Viva Eddie Guerrero” in his honour.
