Its been almost four years since we have seen Latino Heat Lie, Cheat, and Steal his way into our hearts. He had an uncanny ability to win by cheating and the fans loved every minute of it.
In his final match, he won by acting like he was hit by a chair shot by Mr. Kennedy while the ref was down. He not only was a great Latino wrestler, but I believe he was THE best Latino wrestler in WWE history.
As a proud Latino myself, he was one of the few wrestlers that I truly admired. It was Extra Special when he won the WWE Title from Brock Lesnar.
Since his death, the WWE has not had luck finding a Latino to take his spot. I mean Rey Mysterio is a great wrestler, but he not used for the Latino demographic, he's more for the children, like John Cena.
But when Eddie would cut a promo, you felt the fire and passion his Mexican heart. I mean I loved when he introduced the Latino Heat gimmick because now every once in a while I use it on the Ladies with some good result.
But what if he would have not met his untimely death??? After his death the WWE thought it be a great Idea to give his fellow Latino a huge push to capture the title at Wrestlemania.
Rey Mysterio won the Royal Rumble by winning it in historical fashion and that soon led him to a triple threat match for the World Heavyweight Championship.
I believe Rey Mysterio would have not gotten the push he did because during that storyline it was emotionally driven storyline that saw Randy Orton telling him that Eddie went to hell. And so that led Mysterio to win his title on pure emotion.
I also believe that Chavo would have been released after a horrible Kerwin White gimmick. Seriously what was he and the WWE thinking????
And also Vickie would not be standing right now calling herself the Smackdown GM. And she most certainly would not be sharing saliva with Mr. Copeland.
But as she said once we have to move on and I hate to admit it, but she really has become a great heel with Edge.
Every now and then I go on YouTube to watch some classic LWO and Latino Heat videos and think of the great Eddie Guerrero moments.
After watching those videos, I think to myself "We will never have another Eddie Guerrero, PERIOD!!!!" We LIE, We Cheat, and We Steal!!!
