• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 54th birthday of Old School WWF Legend “Latino Heat” Eddie Guerrero (Real name: Eduardo Gory Guerrero Llanes).
Eddie started his career in Mexico (CMLL & AAA) and in Japan, where he wrestled as the second incarnation of the ‘Black Tiger’ gimmick in NJPW.
In 1995, he wrestled for Extreme Championship Wrestling, where he had a legendary rivalry with Dean Malenko, before Eric Bischoff signed Eddie to a contract for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, a promotion he had wrestled for as a jobber a couple of times in 1989 & 1991, but was now hired as a main roster talent.
He stayed with WCW till January 2000, when him, Perry Saturn, Chris Benoit & Dean Malenko jumped ship to the World Wrestling Federation, where they were known as ‘The Radicalz’.
His on-screen kayfabe relationship with legendary WWF Women’s Wrestler Chyna, made for one of the best storylines of the year 2000.
Eddie Guerrero defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship in the main event of the ‘WWE No Way Out 2004’ PPV, but passed away in November 2005 from acute heart failure due to underlying atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
