"Viva la Raza!" was often the battle cry of Eddie Guerrero, one of professional wrestling's greatest stars. Born October 9th, 1967 into the second generation of the Guerrero wrestling dynasty, Eddie was the youngest of his tights-wearing brothers. His career would take him all across the globe, grappling in Mexico, Japan, the United States, and beyond. His hard work, technical skill, and charisma took him far, winning over twenty wrestling championships in his 18 years in the ring. As part of his character, he lied, cheated, and stole his way into the hearts of millions of wrestling fans, becoming the second Hispanic wrestler to win the World Wrestling Entertainment Heavyweight Championship. Tragically, Eddie would pass away from heart failure at the height of his popularity in 2005. Posthumously inducted into both the WWE and AAA Hall of Fame, his legacy is felt through the impact he had on his fellow wrestlers, his family, and the wrestling business itself.
