• Hall Of Famer Says Eddie Guerrero Was Miserable During His Run As WWE Champion

During a recent episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, legendary WWF commentator Jim Ross talked about the career of the late, great ‘Latino Heat’ Eddie Guerrero.

JR stated that Eddie was miserable during his 2004 run as the WWE Champion, due to the pressure of carrying the entire SmackDown! brand on his shoulders after the brand’s #1 draw, Brock Lesnar, left the company.

Here’s what Good Ol’ JR had to say:

“If Eddie had just relied on his instincts and his natural ability to work a match and perform at a high level, it would have never been an issue. But Eddie was not wound that way.

He was wound tighter than a fiddle string. I don’t know how to explain it any better. He, mentally, was putting so much pressure on himself that he was making himself miserable by being the WWE Champion.”

Eddie Guerrero defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship in the main event of the No Way Out 2004 PPV on February 15, 2004, but lost the title about 4 months later on June 27th at the Great American Bash 2004 pay-per-view, when he was defeated by JBL in a Texas Bullrope match.
