Guerrero died at the young age of 38. Back in November 2005, his nephew Chavo Guerrero found him passed out with a toothbrush in hand in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The autopsy revealed Eddie died because of acute heart failure due to underlying atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
The tributes for Eddie Guerrero happened back then, and they still happen to date.
