This is so sad. I'm sitting here thinking 'that cannot be right', but... damn. It's such a shame for so many reasons. He was one of the best performers I have seen in wrestling and I agree that this one hits me the hardest out of all the recent deaths in wrestling. It's just not right.

Thank you, Eddie. We were all lucky to have been able to see your hard work and great matches throughout your years in the proffession. You will be remembered as one of the finest ever. Godspeed.

I really can't add any more than what's already been said. I think that goes to show that everyone felt the same way about Eddie and we're all a bit less at the moment for hearing the news.

Eddie will be remembered. His life may be taken away, but that can never be.

That's kind of weird. Does hotel security normally let people into rooms because nobody answers the phone? Was there some sort of health issue that we didn't know about?

I don't normally check any news over the weekend because it seems like nothing ever happens. This is definitely the last thing I'd expected to see today. Just the other day I'd been talking with a friend about whether Uncle Eddy would be getting the belt since Batista was injured...

I'd delete your posts if I could.

Just saw him here in L.A. less than 2 weeks ago. So very glad I decided to go to that SD! show.

This one hurts really, really bad.

    Vince McMahon and Chavo Guerrero held a press conference regarding the untimely death of Eddie Guerrero today at 12:45 CT. At this time, the circumstances surrounding his death are still unclear.

    Video of the entire press conference will be made available on WWE.com shortly.

    (It wasn't up as of this posting.)
I have no idea how Chavo is keeping it together.

For those who want to check it out: view it at the lowest resolution, because you'll get continued breakups and buffers and stuff like that.

Basically:

-- They don't know the cause of death for sure at the moment, and they'll be examining the body tomorrow to find out. Eddie's history of substance abuse is most likely not a factor in his death.

-- Both tapings tonight will be tribute shows.

The one thing that stood out to me during the press conference was when Chavo mentioned that Eddie was proud to be celebrating four years of sobriety. It's such a tragedy Eddie lost his life so soon after overcoming his demons.

So, so sad.

EDIT: not to get off-topic, and I apologize if this is the wrong time to bring this up, and feel free to delete this part of my post, but hopefully this is the point where the company really puts an end to looking the other way on steroid use by their wrestlers.

    Maybe El Gringos Locos are flying again, somwhere.


Well, this is a pretty brutal kick in the balls to wake up to on a Sunday morning...

This is looking like the same thing that took Hawk away and has caused Dynamite Kid problems... Steroid abuse causes severe heart damage that weakens the heart even years after steroid use has stopped completely.

The only positive I can see in this situation is the same thing I saw with Candido. He was clean and his soul was in a good state before he was taken.

Also, according to Vince, Eddie will have royalties coming in forever...and they'll go straight to his family.

I was just gearing up for the show tonight when I heard this on the news. What a terrible, sad, depressing thing to happen to a wonderful guy.

I'm looking forward to going to the Target Center tonight to celebrate the life and career of Eddie Guerrero. God bless.

Wow. THis is so totally unexpected. One of the best ENTERTAINERS of the Sports Entertainment era, AND one of the best WRESTLERS too.

His substance abuse notwithstanding, I think the biggest obstacle he overcame was the horrible car accident where he nearly passed away, a broken pelvis, I believe a ruptured spleen, and other injuries. Just to be able to WALK after that accident, let alone be able to take the bumps he could take, is remarkable.

So, both shows are tribute shows, and Vince actually didnt sound like his typical self, and explained that nobody has to work if they dont want to.

The more I think of it, the more tears well up in my eyes.

Chavo said he had three daughters, 12, 10 and a 2 year old. He was only 2 years older than me. To imagine how much more he went through in his life than I have, it amazes me that he was able to perform day after day.

The real part that sucks is that he wont be remembered by the mainstream media for being a great performer, but he will be held up as an example of what's wrong with the sport.
RIP Eddie, thank you for the memories.

Think I'll go put in WMXX and watch Eddie win the title.

I've been sitting around all day, still numb from reading about the passing away of Eddie Guerrero. I just can't put into words my complete disbelief and sadness.

May Eddie's family and friends be blessed. I'm sure I can speak for us all when I say we've got nothing but positive thoughts and prayers for them.

Eddie, you will be sorely missed by us all.

I was thinking the same sort of thing. Part of me had a bad feeling about what it meant, but I still had to read CRZ's post a couple times to really accept what it really meant.

I don't think I've ever posted in one of these threads before, but this one just affects me more. I've watched Eddie since I started watching wrestling. He was one of my favorites and I followed his career right to today. I remember him being here in Winnipeg the week before the WWE took him back, and how happy everyone here was when the news hit that he was heading back up. He was a tremendous entertainer that forced everyone to care about him.

If it turns out that it was 'natural' causes, or at least as natural as can be in someone so young, the only solice I think anyone can take is that he got himself clean in time to get a few more years with his family and a few more years doing what he loved. Unfortunately, as in the case of Hawk and others, the damage to his system was already done.

He'll absolutely be missed by everyone here, but I can't stop thinking about his wife and three small girls. There's not much worse than a little girl growing up without a father, but I hope when they're older they'll be able to watch old tapes of their dad and at least see the kind of character and passion the man had. There are some people that take in every second of life that they are given and make the most of all of it. Hopefully they'll see that and know that their dad was someone they can truely be proud of.

It's not real to me.

I can't think of the man I have watched over come the odds agaisnt the biggest and baddest in the WWE... celebrate in front of my eyes with his best friend for being on top of the industry at WM XX.... was dead in some hotel room with a tooth brush in his mouth.

What the hell?

I hope Los Gringos Locos are tearing it up in the big wrestling ring in the sky.

38 years old is too young for anyone to die, no matter what damage he had done to himself during those down years. I feel good that he did turn his life around and he did reach the "top of the mountain" in WWE and his young kids got to see their father at that high point in his life.

Watching that press conference and recently being through a similar death in the family, I would say that it still probably hasn't hit Chavo yet. I'm sure that when he's finally alone and tries to lay down and go to sleep tonight, it will hit him and hit him hard.

Watching the tribute shows is going to be real tough especially when people like Chavo and Chris Benoit will be speaking.

No words can do justice how I feel.
Closest thing has to be the kick in the face I got when I heard about Owen.
This time it hurts evne more because I have lots more special Eddie memories.
Thank God for all the memories.
So long Eddie. Thank you.
