• Jim Ross Revealed Why Vince McMahon Gave A Main Event Push To Eddie Guerrero

During a recent edition of Grilling JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talked about Eddie Guerrero defeating Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship in 2004 and why Vince McMahon gave a main event push to Eddie.

Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:

“The fact that Eddie could work with anybody. He could work with a bigger babyface and make it real. He could work with a bigger heel and make it even more real. He brought the best out in everybody.

If you polled the locker room, they’re gonna tell you that the two best workers we had at one point in time was Benoit and Eddie because they were.

They were fresh, Eddie was hungry. He didn’t want to be called a cruiserweight or a midget or whatever.

I think it’s consistency and the fact that everybody wanted to work with him. When you have top guys going to the old man just to get face time, and they tell him ‘Vince if I get a chance, I’d like to work with Eddie.’ Enough guys did that and then Vince said there’s something here.

[Eddie’s WWE Championship win] was emotional as hell. I cried, a lot of guys cried. For him, it was a realization of a life long dream to be the top guy in the biggest company.”
