II just read about the untimely death of Eddie Guererro. I am proud to have
met him when I was in Columbus. He was more than friendly to Scott and I and I have a display case over my desk displaying
some memories of that night: A Viva La Raza shirt, my ticket stub and backstage pass, an autographed copy of one of my DVDs,
and a photo of Eddie, Scott and I. I will always remember that night, as one of the highlights of my life. Please pass on
my condolences to anyone that may need them. Eddie's family and his WWE family will be in my prayers.
From: Jim Raudabaugh, Show & Go Customs
I was completely shocked when I heard the news. I was hoping it was just some
rumor or plot for an upcoming controversy. When I found out it was true, I truly felt I had lost one of my friends. Eddie
used our cars 3 times and it was an honor every time. Hell, we felt that we were part of the WWE family. Our prayers go out
to Eddie, his family, and all the people at WWE. It’s a sad day that will not be forgotten by us at Show and Go Customs.
I know you guys are coming into Detroit for Survior Series on the 27th and I would be completely honored if you guys were
interested in using some Low riders as a tribute to Eddie. We would do anything possible to contribute anyway we can. If you
want one car, 3 cars, 10 cars we would be willing to do this as a final tribute on pay per view. My 7 year old daughter Megan
is crying about this, she received an autographed picture of Tori Wilson and Eddie. She tells all her friends at school how
great the experience of coming to wrestling and Eddie using her Daddy’s car. She along with me is very saddened about
this situation. I hope everyone in the WWE can keep things positive and take care of each other. It’s a rough business
and every one of your fans appreciates what you guys do to yourselves for our entertainment. Let me know if there is anything
we can do, and we gladly will. I know I don’t know Eddies immediate family but if you could tell them our prayers are
with them I would appreciate it.

Eddie touched many hearts and will continue for many years to come, The Taste

you out with cars across the nation. I have enclosed pictures of my son's Agustin's 1981 Lincoln Continental named "Latino
When you emailed me last year for assistance with Low-riders, my son named
his masterpiece after Eddie. After the event in Odessa ,Texas, people still come in to the body shop and ask to see Eddie's
ride. People followed my son in the parking lot, chasing after the car and calling Eddie! Eddie!
The car went into a rebuilt phase sometime after that and it will be feathered
this weekend on the main floor at one of the most prestigious car shows in the nation the 34th Annual Tejano Super Car Show
in Odessa, Texas. The main floor showcasing five cars out of four hundred entries and over 10,000 people will be attending.

I am deeply saddened to hear that Eddie has passed away. From my family to yours I send my deepest condolences.
Eddie was an inspiration to my brothers and I, we loved to watch him wrestle. He was a great wrestler, an incredible character
and most of all an amazing man. Our thoughts and prays go to you.
From: Gustavo Carega
It was a great honor and privilege for me to have played a small part of Eddie's
life. His impact on my family and I, words can't explain. My kids play wrestling and every time they play I have to hear them
arguing on who is going to be Eddie Guerrero. He had such a positive influence on many parts of my life. I have been a WWE
fan since I was a little kid. So I would like to say "Thank You" from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to have been
part of something so special. I have attached some snapshots from the times you used my Lowrider for
the show. If you
ever need my services again, please do not hesitate to ask.
From: Thomas DeBarr, fan
Eddie was an Icon.
I remember all the great matches and the many faces Eddie could portray. My deepest sympathy goes out to the entire
Guerrero family and to the entire WWE family as well. Goodbye Latino Heat.

On Behalf of Eternal Rollerz Car Club we give our deepest condolences to the
Guerrero family, friends, co workers and fans. Eddie will be missed by the Lowrider community but he will be remembered by

You always knew you were going to be entertained when he was out there in the ring. This is a huge loss to WWE and his family.
My thoughts go out to his wife and kids.
From: Chris Jericho, friend
Eddie was almost a mentor to me in a lot of ways, and I was
a mentor to him in a lot of ways too. It just hurts. It really, really hurts. more...
From: Steve Love, fan
No matter what he was doing, Eddie could get a reaction from me;
whether I'd laugh, cry, cheer or jeer. Eddie was one of the best wrestlers of all time and deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.
I am trying to be a wrestler, and a lot of what I know I've learned from watching Eddie. He is an inspiration to us all to
never give up. You lied, you cheated, you stole our hearts; thank you so, so much Eddie. I will never, ever forget you.
From: Paul Noah, fan
I am deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Eddie Guerrero.
Eddie was a true superstar and a true man. I have followed Eddie's career for years and I always knew he would make it big.
My heartfelt sympathies and prayers go out to the Guerrero family. When Raw and Smackdown air every week just know that Eddie
will be watching from the best seat in the house!
From: Justin, fan
I'm deeply and truly sad that Eddie is gone. There will never be anyone
that can replace him or do the things he did so well in the ring. His devious style of wrestling was so unique and that's
what I'll personally miss the most. He was so cool at everything he did in the ring. From his Frog Splashes, to his sly strategies
of 'Lying, Cheating, and Stealing,' his very entertaining entrances and his very amusing dance numbers. I'm gonna miss
Eddie and everything he did for WWE.
From: Mike Gill, fan
Eddie is a big inspiration to me as a fan and a future wrestler.
He didn’t let his past problems stop him and he worked hard to get where he was.
From: Heather Barber, fan
Eddie was an awesome wrestler it is sad to think that we won't
see hiis face in the ring anymore. He was a role model at times and showed that he wouldn't give up.
From: Melanie Mechura & James Marcks, fans

untimely passing. Please know that Eddie and his family, co-workers and friends are in our prayers... He will surely
be missed by us and ALL his fans worldwide.
From: Laura Cross
My nephew was one of Eddie Guerrero’s biggest fans. He is 10
and I called him yesterday and told him of the news and he said he wanted to cry. He loved how he would come out in
those awesome low riders and said that he wanted to meet him some day. It is very unfortunate that he will never be able to
meet him, but the awesome memories will always be with him.
From: Kevin Casey, fan
Eddie Guerrero will be greatly missed. The wrestling world
will never be the same again. Eddie is the ultimate role model for anybody who has ever struggled with personal
issues. He gave hope and belief that they can do anything and achieve their goals.
From: Audrey Stewart, fan
Myself and my daughter would like to say how sorry we are and
send our condolences to the Guerrero family. Eddie was one of the best wrestlers in wwe and wcw.
From: Henry Potter, fan
I'll never forget a scrawny Eddie coming to the commentary's
podium and sharing a jar of jalapeno peppers with Gordon Solie while letting everyone know that he would one day be a force
to reckon with. I am going to miss watching and being entertained by Eddie.
From: Anthony Baker, fan
I would just like to add my name to the list of those who have

had the privilege to watch. He will be sorely missed by the fans. My deepest sympathies go out to all of his family
From: Brandon Williams, fan
I know we all feel the pain of Eddie's death but Latino heat
will always live on in the hearts of his fans, friends and especially his family. To Mrs. Guerrero, be strong and his fans
are here by your side. I hope they have a wrestling ring and lowriders and heaven so Eddie can lie cheat and steal in peace.
From: Daniel Puchalski, fan
I send my deepest apologies and my condolences to the Guerrero family. He had
a rough life and I find him to be a role model for everything that he has triumphed through. He is in a better place now and
he is flying with the angels. He is also watching over Vickie and his three children. I always found him to be a terrific
wrestler and a funny person all around.
From: Daniel Luna, fan
Not one single wrestler ever made me feel the pure emotion that I felt the
night Eddie Guerrero beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship in Feb. 2004 and for this I thank you, Eddie.
From: Katrina Dear, fan
What a sad day for all of us WWE fans, Eddie was truly an inspiration to us
all! My heart goes out to his wife and his 3 young ones, I will pray for you that God helps you with the pain that you
are enduring. No one will be able to take the place of the one and only Eddie Guerrero, but he will live in our hearts
and he will always be remembered.
From: James Taylor, fan
Eddie Guerreo was a man who refused to be beaten by his demons and surpassed
his wildest dreams when he beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship last year. And when he did that he inspiered me to reach
for my dream of one day becoming a WWE Superstar, I actually hoped that I could one day meet my hero and possibly wrestle
side by side with him, he made me realize that you don`t have to be one of the big boys to do big things in that ring, he
gave me faith in myself to chase after my own dreams, and after seeing Eddie chase his dreams and surpass them I am going
to do the same thing no matter how long it takes me to accomplish them. So I just want to say ''Goodbye, and thank you Latino
Heat Eddie Guerrero''.
From: Rocio Torres, fan
I was deeply saddened by the news of Eddie's death. My son is a huge
fan of Eddie Guerrero. He was always saying "LATINO HEAT. VIVA LA RAZA!" He was a great inspiration to all
the LATINOS everywhere. I don't even want to tell my son because I know he'll be heartbroken and he will cry.

From: Kathy Murphree, fan
My daughter, Stevie Raye and I wish to express our great sadness and send our
deepest condolences to Eddie's family. Stevie has been a big wrestling fan all her life, she had wrestling figures instead
of barbie dolls. We were lucky enough to see Eddie and all the others when they came here to San Antonio, TX last month,
we were ringside on the second row. The memory of Eddie standing on the ring right in front of us, was awesome.
We also saw his final match on Nov. 11th where he showed us all how clever he was, in fooling the referee and defeating Mr.

this great performer did in the ring. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
From: Tommie Gilson, fan

From: Adrian Ruiz, fan
I've just heard of the tragic death
and could not believe my eyes when I checked the WWE homepage. It saddened me to see that Eddie had passed on. I grew up watching
eddie as a young child in WCW, and was happy when he came to the WWE with Benoit, Malenko, and Saturn. And I was extremely
happy when he became WWE Champion because me as a mexican-american had someone to look up to. I know this loss must be tough
on the Guerrero family so I would like to say that Eddie may be gone but he has left a legacy that will never be matched.
From: Ashley Lindridge, fan
I will never forget the day i personally met Eddie. It was over here in the
U.K, October 2004, Nottingham. I was 1st in the queue with my two brothers, we queued for 9 hours, to be the 1st to see him.
When he arrived, he was so happy to see us, and couldnt believe we had waited that long. He gave the impression to us that
he was even happier to meet us than we was to meet him. That was the kind of man Eddie was, such a nice guy, that loved the
fans and loved his life. Thank you, Eddie. I will never ever forget you.
From: Jerry & Therese DeBlasio, fans
Two weeks ago my wife and I were going to a school in the Phoenix area to pick
up our 8 yr old and we were approaching the area where we normally would wait and my wife says to me "That guy looks familiar."
I looked and told her it was Eddie Guerrero. She said "No, it can't be". We got closer and indeed it was the famous pro wrestler,
with his wife and his Mom. I approached him and extended my hand to tell him I was a "HUGE" fan. He graciously shook my hand
and with a shy look said "Thank You". He then introduced his wife and mother to us and we had a wonderful conversation. It
was like we knew these people our whole lives. Yet, he was a "celebrity" and didn't need to even talk to us. The next day
we saw each other again and both he and Vickie walked by and remembered my name and said hello. What I'm trying to say is
that for the last two weeks that we have known this family, they have made my family feel so comfortable being around them.
From: Rashard Gary, fan
The most memorable Eddie Guerrero
moment was at WrestleMania XX when he came out to congratulate Chris Benoit on winning the World Heavyweight Championship.
It was great seeing two wrestlers who I have watched over the years reach the top of the ladder. I will never forget
that moment and I will never forget "Latino Heat" Eddie Guerrero. He is truly a legend in my book.
From: Nathan Timm, fan
I would like to commend the entire WWE family for the Eddie Guerrero tribute
show I attended. It was the most emotional event I have ever attended. I thank each and every one of the wrestlers for giving
their heart and soul tonight for Eddie. The matches were first rate. I heard that all the wrestlers were given the choice
not to perform, but they all did it for Eddie. I thank the WWE from the bottom of my heart for this first class presentation.
From: Jeff Rayne, fan
Eddie Guerrero was, and still is,
and inspiration to many. In the world of "big men," Eddie reached heights nobody thought possible of someone with his
size and his style. His dedication, athletic prowess, and ability to entertain millions of people made him known world
wide. It has been an honor to watch Eddie perform and he will undoubtedly go down as one of the most gifted in ring
performers in wrestling history. Although he is gone, his legacy will live on in the hearts, souls, and memories of
millions of people forever. Goodbye Eddie, and thank you for sharing your life on the screen with people who couldn't
know you personally.
Name: Eddie Guerrero
Height: 5 foot 8
Weight: 220 pounds
From: El Paso, Texas
Finishing Move: Frog Splash; Lasso from El Paso
Career Highlights: WWE World Heavyweight Title (defeated Brock Lesnar at No Way Out on February 15, 2004); WWE
Tag Team Titles (3 times); WWE Intercontinental title (2 times); WWE United States Title (defeated Chris Benoit in tournament
final at Vengeance 2003); WWE European Title (2 times); WCW United States Title, WCW Cruiserweight Title, ECW Television
Title (2 times)
One of the most gifted WWE Superstars on the SmackDown roster, Eddie Guerrero was also one of the most conflicted and tortured souls to ever step foot in a WWE ring. With wrestling running through his
bloodlines on both sides of his family dating back to his father – the legendary Gory Guerrero, Eddie was consumed
and obsessed by the sports entertainment business since he was a child and first began training in an El Paso wrestling ring
in his parents' backyard. It was there that he was instilled with the mentality of being the best he could be and having a
passion to be numero uno.
