Eddie Guerrero was an American wrestler of Mexican descent, known for his stints in World Championship Wrestling between 1995 and 2000 and in the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment from 2000 until his death.
Considered one of the best wrestlers of all time, he wrestled all over the world and played for the three major North American professional wrestling promotions of the time: Extreme Championship Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Federation / Entertainment.
During his career he repeatedly had problems related to the abuse of alcohol, drugs and painkillers, however he managed to definitively defeat his addictions in 2001. His real-life problems have also sometimes been integrated into the storylines of the WWE, always with the his permission. Between WWE, WCW and ECW he won a total of 23 titles, including the WWE Championship.
On November 13, 2005, he was found lifeless by his nephew Chavo in his hotel room in Minneapolis, the city where WWE had gone for the tapings of the episode of SmackDown.
Eddie, however, did not answer the call to wake up in the morning and the security was forced to open his room. Chavo Guerrero Jr. was the first to enter and found his uncle unconscious in the bathroom. Chavo immediately called 911 but doctors, after trying to bring him back to consciousness, pronounced him dead.
