So I'm having a bit of trouble with just one thing about this dream Guerrero push...

That's not a 'I'm never happy' response. I'm basing that on the fact that for the past several months, Eddie's entire character has been based on lying, cheating, and stealing, and he (and Chavo) got over a great deal with this working for them. And maybe I missed the Smackdown where this changed, but suddenly he's all about getting over his addictions and fighting for the WWE Title.

Don't get me wrong - the entire Chavo turn certainly could have helped 're-focus' Eddie and the way he went about things, but how's the E going to keep the heat from the old Eddie on this one?

Why question a WWE angle or direction? 90% of the things they do week in and week out make no sense.

You're confusing his actions (lying, cheating, stealing) with his motivations (beating his demons, doing it for his family). I, for one, think this is dynamite booking. Basically, the WWE is saying, "Here's this guy. And he does all the things you love about heels. But the thing is, he does them all for really good reasons. And sometimes he has to break the rules, but he's got a lot of heart."
It's False

The problem with this type of booking is that now Eddie SERIOUSLY needs to go over. If you bring up someone's past demons and motivations, it'll do no one any good if he just drops the ball in the end. It'll make him look like a loser.

But the risks are worth it. If Eddie DOES go over, you've got the feel-good wrestling story of the year. "Wrestler hits rock bottom, conquers his demons, and works up from the bottom up until he finally reaches the world title.

Edge: So Triple H wants me to come to Raw and fight him for the big gold belt. I've TOTALLY passed you on the card.
Jericho: Yeah, but while Triple H is burying you, I get to make out with Trish in front of millions. You tell ME who the winner is here, junior!

It does seem pretty much like an echo of Booker T/HHH last year, except.....y'know, Brock ain't HHH. The story may actually have a logical conclusion

Yes, because selling a knee is quite illogical.

You heard of me, the fat guy that raps
Now it's time for Bizarre to take off his shower cap
It's been five days, I patiently waited
Saturday mornin, it's time to get faded
And I mean get faded, 'I mean get faded!'
Damn near four o'clock, I didn't almost make it
My barber's name is Sarah, she don't really know how to cut
But she got some nice teeth and big ol' butt (yeah!)
So two days a week, I get faded for no reason
Same ol' haircut, keep it low and breathin
If you see me in a barbershop, go on and run
Cause I'm probably gettin' a perm and my toe-nails done!"

Not sure about the *exact* date, but it was a Raw in April 2000. I believe it wasn't the night after Wrestlemania, but the following week. Hope that helps some. edit: Looks like I was beaten to the punch, and then some!
