In a new blog posted over at JRsBarBQ.com, Jim Ross remembers the late Eddie Guerrero as yesterday was the 8 year anniversary of Guerrero's death. Ross had the following to say regarding the first time he ever met Eddie:

"Eddie was only 38 years of age when he passed away suddenly of heart issues on November 13, 2005 and no one ever I've known has left a more memorable legacy in the pro wresting biz in only 38 years on Earth than the unforgettable Eddie Guerrero.

Any company who puts an automatic size limit on how big wrestlers must be to be hired with WWE, TNA. etc are making a huge mistake. Because one never knows on that rare occasion when one might find another amazingly gifted, passionate, charismatic, in ring genius who's all of 5'8" and reminds us all of the WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero."

Jerry Lawler Comments on Andy Kaufman Story

Earlier today we posted a story regarding the brother of Andy Kaufman making a recent comment that Andy is still alive and that his death was a hoax, and CNN spoke with long time Kaufman rival Jerry Lawler, and The King had the following to say regarding the story:

"I would like nothing better than to know that Andy was still alive and been with us all this time. But like anybody else, I really don't know any more than what I've heard. It could be a great hoax in his honor, dreamed up by his friend Bob Zamuda and his brother, Michael. That would be something that would be in keeping with Andy's tradition, but who's to say. It could really be legit. There should be a WrestleMania rematch between Andy and The King. We could rekindle the feud with no problem."
