• Eddie Guerrero’s Daughter On How WWE Pressured Her Using Her Father’s Name
WWE Hall Of Famer Eddie Guerrero’s daughter, Shaul Guerrero, was a guest on this week’s “Excuse Me” podcast.
She discussed her time in WWE’s development brand and how the company wanted her to be like her father.
Below is what Shaul said:
“I want to say he would be proud. Then I feel that there was so much pressure put on me when I was in FCW to be as good as you (Vickie) and as good as Dad and that was a lot. That was a lot on me. The fact that I had to earn my name that I already had? I understood where they were coming from that they don’t want to call you by your name because if you suck we don’t want you to be a disappointment.
That happened to me about two months in. I was like holy sh*t. You (Vickie) never put pressure on me. I don’t think the family meant to put pressure on me but, there was pressure put on me about my body. I needed to look more feminine. Basically, I needed to be the ideal Diva.
I was having such a hard time and the pressure was so much. I don’t know if they meant to put that pressure on me. Every rehearsal was like, ‘well your Dad did it like this.’ I loved that. I looked up to Dad. If I could move like him, that’s great. But, I think moving forward with me in the wrestling industry today and everything I learned in FCW, I am going to do this my way.
I am going to do this for me. I am going to have fun with this. I am going to have to put Dad’s legacy and your legacy to the side a little bit for me. I remember even then, I wasn’t Latina enough for them because Dad was such an icon for the Latino community which is amazing.”
Shaul made her AEW debut recently as an announcer for the Women’s Tag Team tournament.
