As part of the "Decade Of SmackDown" special telecast last Friday, World Wrestling Entertainment paid tribute to the career of the late Eddie Guerrero, which has received rave reviews from across the globe, and in many eyes was the highlight of the program. This Friday (October 9th) would have been the 42nd birthday of "Latino Heat." We look back & celebrate the life of Eddie on The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network, as Chavo "Classic" returned to the program this week, and was welcomed back by The Big Mosh, Blade, & "The Chairman Of The Board" Todd Vincent to promote his wrestling & golf tournament being held in Bandera, TX this Friday & Saturday (October 9th/10th), with all proceeds benefiting the Eddie Guerrero Charity Fund & the Bandera Honors Veteran’s Committee. For more information & how you can join the Guerrero family/other wrestling friends slated to attend, contact the Lost Valley Resort & Golf Course at (830) 460-8008, or log onto Chavo’s official website (located at www.geocities.co.jp/Colosseum-Athene/1956/11.html). While preparing for the wrestling/golf tournament, "Classic" could not help but be moved about what he saw & witnessed on SmackDown from Boston, and the love & passion shown by his brother’s fans from around the world. "You talk about emotions. I am at this moment emotional moved We all know WWE is #1 when it comes to production…I don’t care what anybody thinks. I very much emotionally moved, emotionally honored. It was a very good tribute, it was something I was very proud of. When I think about it, it brought tears to my eyes: joyful tears & memory tears. If you haven’t seen it, you have to see it. It’s amazing, and it took me by surprise."
In life, Eddie had his demons, and some people still look to those demons, instead of looking at the life & career of an amazing performer. Mosh asked Chavo Sr. about the importance of celebrating his life & just that. "For people who met him or if you didn’t meet him, you met him through the TV, or through other means. Eddie was a very giving person. He was not only a Christian man, but very giving. The charity I’m doing now is a charity that honors veterans & people on active duty now. And when Eddie would go to Iraq, he used to come back so elated, so full of life, so blessed because he saw people that was fighting for us & making our life better. And he was always so grateful about this."
