• Chris Jericho Hopes New WWE Wrestlers Won’t Be Like The Young Randy Orton

On the 53rd birthday of WWE Hall Of Famer Eddie Guerrero, Randy Orton took to Instagram to pay a tribute to “Latino Heat”.

He wrote the following:

“I knew Eddie for a couple years. I was so young and knew that I shouldn’t approach him but had the unimaginable job of wrestling in the main event on TV, so I had to.

There has always been attitudes, egos or whatever backstage, that will never change. But when I met Eddie I forgot everything that I was supposed to know about the wrestling business.

Here was this top talent, that cared enough to give me the time of day. When I thought that a simple word would bother him, or he would tell me to F off, I quickly realized that I was dead wrong and that he gaf.

He saw a young newcomer to the biz who was excited to work with him and he took the time to make me feel comfortable. I take that with me these days, the understanding that the new guys aren’t anything more than exactly how I USED to be. He made me feel welcome. He made me feel important.

I will forever miss him, and can say without a doubt that he was one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of boots. RIP #eddieguerrero”
