It promises to be an emotional night at WrestleMania XXX, as a clutch of stars could well be appearing in their final ever edition of the historic pay-per-view.

Guys like Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and The Undertaker quite conceivably could be all wrestling at WrestleMania for the final time in their illustrious careers. And it looks like one of the most recognizable faces of the company in recent times is definitely packing up and leaving. WrestlingNewsSource (h/t F4WOnline) is claiming that Vickie Guerrero will be leaving WWE tonight:

F4WOnline have just reported that Vickie Guerrero will leave the WWE after tonight's Wrestlemania event.

It was actually first reported around a week ago as a rumour but has since seemingly become much more heard this week and it's said that she will pursue other opportunities after tonight.

If it is, it really is an end of an era for the WWE and Vickie. 

This is a pretty big story, as Guerrero is currently active as the General Manager of SmackDown. It means there will be an opening for someone to step in and take Guerrero's rolewhether that is another member of the backstage crew or an active wrestler.

She has been on WWE TV since 2005, when she first appeared with her late husband, Eddie Guerrero. Since then she has gone on to have a number of roles with the company on TV, including several managerial roles.

Perhaps she is most fondly remembered for her part in the La Familia stable, when she helped several of its members, such as Edge and Chavo Guerrero, win championships. She used her leverage to help Edge eventually win the World Heavyweight Championship at the Armageddon pay-per-view.

They, of course, had the infamous wedding scene which Triple H crashedwhich led to the rivalry between HHH and Edge for the World Heavyweight Championship.

It may not seem like a huge departure in the grand scheme of thingsbut Vickie Guerrero has been a pretty important talent for the WWE in recent years. The pro wrestling industry needs people to work alongside the talent in the ring, such as managers and leaders. Guerrero has been particularly impressive in these rolesand will no doubt be remembered for her "Excuse Me!" shrieks.

The WWE will survive without her, but Vickie Guerrero will definitely be missed when it comes to the things that happen outside of the ring in the company.
