• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (November 13, 2005) – Old School WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2005, we lost Old School WWF Legend Eddie Guerrero at the age of 38 due to acute heart failure.
After some time in AAA, NJPW and ECW, Eddie had his debut for Ted Turner’s WCW in 1995 and later jumped ship to the WWF in early 2000.
He was the son of Old School Lucha Libre Legend Gory Guerrero, the brother of Chavo Guerrero Sr. (Chavo Classic), Mando Guerrero and Hector Guerrero, as well as the uncle of Chavo Guerrero Jr.
In 2006, Eddie Guerrero was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his close personal friends Rey Mysterio & Chris Benoit, and his nephew Chavo Guerrero Jr.
REST IN PEACE!
(October 9, 1967 – November 13, 2005)
• Former WWE Wrestler Defends Steroid Use In Wrestling
During a recent interview with Hannibal TV, former WWE wrestler Simon Dean defended the use of steroids in Professional Wrestling (and rightfully so).
Below is what he said:
“So I never understood, especially in wrestling, it’s a ‘performance enhancing drug.’ What performance are you enhancing? You know I never understood that, right? Because it’s predetermined. Did the cast of 300 get to look that way because they took chicken breast and put self-tanner on? No, they obviously busted their a$$es.
So if we stood in front of Walmart today and gave 100 different kits of whatever they had out to them, every single one of those people are going to get a different result. You can go to hormone places now, you can go to 25 again, Total Fitness Health & Wellness and you can get testosterone therapy. I mean what doctor is going to prescribe you something that’s going to injure you or hurt you? They don’t.
They can prescribe you tests, they can prescribe you growth hormones. They can prescribe you stuff for your health and wellness and I just never understood the stigma behind it.”
