Eric Escobar on working with Vickie Guerrero

Few will remember the name of Eric Escobar. The latter was one of the top talents in the WWE development circuit in the mid-2000s. The Puerto Rican superstar, who has spent most of his career in the slums of the Stamford company, has finally had his big break only in 2009 when he was joined by Vickie Guerrero on SmackDown.

Thanks to his exceptional managerial skills, the former GM of the blue show has helped numerous talents to show themselves in front of the television screens. During a long interview with Sportskeeda, Escobar recalled his experience working with Vickie, who currently plays the role of the manager in the fledgling AEW.

The former FCW champion said he was honored to have been able to interact with the widow of a legend like Eddie.

Escobar recalls his WWE stint with Vickie

“First of all, I've always been a huge Eddie Guerrero fan.

May he rest in peace. Having the chance to work with his widow was quite surprising. At the same time, I have to admit that it was also a problem for me. It seems to me that at that moment he was the most hated heel of the whole company.

I think working with Vickie Guerrero was a great experience, I would have liked to continue doing it a little longer," said Eric Escobar. The angle ended when Eric lost to Kane in December 2009. Earlier the following year, the wrestler was released from WWE and is now a police officer.

Recently, Vickie focused on Andrade El Idolo's sensational debut in Tony Khan's federation (which took place a few weeks ago). “I think he's been really underused in WWE, even if that's just my personal opinion.

There is a lot of talent out there, it's not easy to make the most of everyone's potential. I am convinced that he will have a great time here, both because he will work closely with me and because there are several stars with whom he will be able to compete."

Vickie Guerrero was revealed as the new manager for Nyla Rose in AEW on Dynamite back in July. After retiring from WWE back in 2014, Guerrero discussed her decision to sign with AEW and why she chose not to return to WWE: “No hesitation, put it that way, I retired from WWE in 2014.

My focus was not to return to them. We just had a lot of just differences of opinions and things going on. If it wasn’t going to be for AEW, I don’t think I would be anywhere else, but when AEW presented that there was some opportunity, I gave 100%, just my whole being. I said, “I’m here for you and I can’t wait to be a team player with the company”.
