Classic Audio: November 13, 2005 Bryan and Vinny Show: The Death of Eddie Guerrero


On November 13, 2005 the wrestling world lost one of its brightest stars at the age of 38. Eddie Guerrero was found unconscious by his nephew Chavo in his hotel room, but was later declared dead by paramedics. It was later discovered that his death was due to heart failure brought on by a blocked artery.

 Eddie was a journeymen wrestler similar to the likes of Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit, wrestling all over the world. From his beginnings in Mexico, working as “Black Tiger” in NJPW, winning the Television title in ECW, to having classic matches in the cruiserweight division of WCW, Eddie was a fan favorite that never quite hit the main event level. That was until his run in WWE where he captured the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Brock Lesnar in 2004.

 Until his death he remained a headliner for the Smackdown brand, feuding with JBL, Rey Mysterio, and Batista. In 2006 he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, as well as the Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame.

This week's classic audiolooks back at a Bryan and Vinny Show from 2005 discussing the death of Eddie Guerrero. They also review TNA's Genesis pay per view which featrued Jeff Jarrett and America's Most Wanted vs. Team 3D and Rhyno as well as AJ Styles vs. Petey Williams. A somber show, but historic with memories of the late Eddie Guerrero.
