Have there been any world champs of Hispanic descent other than Eddie? I'm sure there have been, but for the life of us, the guys at my house last night couldn't think of any. We figured there were some back in the day.

Pedro Morales comes to mind.

Carlos Colon, if you count the WWC as a fed.

And, I assume you arent talking cruisers, because then there are SEVERAL that would qualify.

I was wondering the same thing, PU. Couldn't think of anyone other than Morales.

This would make Eddie this first Hispanic champ in a looong time, at any rate.

Yeah, I wasn't talking about cruisers or other champs, just world champions.

Consulting my WWF, WCW and ECW title histories here...

Yeah, Pedro Morales held the WWWF Title from 2/8/71 to 12/1/73. And during part of his reign, Morales wasn't even considered to be a world champion, because the belt was reduced to a regional title when the WWWF joined the NWA temporarily.

Tito Santana defeated Don Muraco on 8/8/93 to win the ECW World Title, so there's that.

Other than that, I think the closest we've come was probably shortly after Rey Mysterio Jr. lost his mask in WCW. He started getting a major push, beating bigger guys like Kevin Nash and Bam Bam Bigelow. He won a drawing to earn a shot at the WCW World Title on Nitro, and got a 2.99999999999999 count on World Champion Ric Flair when Arn Anderson pulled the referee out of the ring.

Too bad Razor Ramon/Scott Hall never won a world title. He was certainly more worthy than half of the past title holders.

Nah, the Cuban thing was just a gimmick, I'm pretty sure. Although when you think about it, the Razor Ramon gimmick had quite a few similarities to Eddie's current gimmick.

Except Eddie's actually Hispanic.

Yes, Pedro Morales is the only one that was recognized. Carlos Colon also beat Flair for the strap in Puerto Rico in 1983, but it wasn't officially recognized as an NWA title win. Kind of the same situation with Race beating Flair in New Zealand (i believe in '83, also), with Flair taking it back in Singapore the next night (or vice versa).

I seem to remember last week Michael Cole and/or Tazz making mention of Eddie having the chance to be the first Mexican world champion (kinda ironic, though, since Eddie is, of course, from Texas). Morales is the only one of Latino descent I can think of from WWF/E, none from NWA/WCW.

Would the ECW title be considered a world title?

Tazz is Puerto Rican I believe.

Tazz is Sicilian.

Come to think of it, how many Sicilian champs have there been? Don't count Italian champs as I've been told by every Sicilian I know that the two are NOT the same!



Two hours later they decided to stop at a diner
Because they loved the smell of eggs and coffee
I just had to smoke a cigarette and wear a hat
By the time that they set off again, the sun was starting to set
It made the sky look red like a nuclear ray
One of them said "what do you want more than anything
in this whole wide world
Do you want money, do you want sex, or do you want all that success?"
I thought about that one myself
(Then they came upon the thing)

I wonder if eddie is at a point now where he can drop the accent. He doesn't really talk that way, and barely has an accent at all in real life.

No, he doesn't speak with an accent in real life. I don't think he drives a new low rider in every town he visits either. The accent is part of his character. Why would a guy wait until he hits the pinnacle of his career to scrap what he's been doing for the previous four years and start fresh?

I'm Mexican, and I love Eddie Guerrero's character. yeah it can be racist sometimes, but seriously, he's still makin a good name for us. it's not like he's an ass or anything. plus, people wouldn't like him as much as a champion. you should just kick back and let Eddie what he does best.



I'm out. Later Later.

Don't think it will work... I can see Cena in next week promo saying, "Yeah they're not booing me they're booing you". As the boos get louder.
