Eddie Guerrero passed away

Wow... This is quite shocking as I've been getting back into liking Eddie's character these last few weeks. I didn't like the whole feud they were writing for him with Rey Rey. I really liked the angle they were doing these last few weeks between him and Batista.

So, like I said... Quite shocking when I get this bit of news in my email box from the Wrestling 365 newsletter:
We are very sad to report that one of the greatest pro wrestlers of the modern era Eddie Guerrero passed away this morning in his hotel room in Minneapolis. He was just 38-years-old. Eddie is survived by his wife Vickie and daughters Kaylie Marie, Shaul and Sherilyn. Authorities have not yet released any information on his death. We hope to have more later today.

Obviously there isn't much information out there about what happened exactly. I'm sure we'll hear more over the coming days. I'm just hoping that his demons didn't catch up with him again. =(

The WWE has a quick page detailing his career over here. It's a good read.

Anywho... I'm going to miss seeing Latino Heat... Regardless if they were writing him as a heal or a babyface he always was able to polarize the audience. Plus... Who's going to drive all the low-riders up to the ring each week now? He was a great techincal wrestler and I'm going to miss seeing his frog splash and charasmatic style in the ring.
