Lucha Libre is now an important face in the history of American wrestling. All thanks to the popularity of his high-flying style. In the 90s, it was the first time that the wrestling style was becoming popular in the American market. The rise in popularity was largely due to wrestlers like Rey Mysterio, Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko, and few others.
Who is Eddie Guerrero?
Eddie Guerrero is one of the most notable superstars in WWE.His untimely death was mourned by the entire WWE world.
In a recent episode of Something About Wrestling, current WWE Raw Executive Director Bruce Prichard revealed that Eddie Guerrero, had he been alive, would have been selected for a dream match at WrestleMania 22. His opponent would be another famous star ‘The Heart-Break Kid’ Shawn Michaels. Given the fact that HBK was Vince McMahon’s favorite go-to Superstar, we can not imagine what it meant for Eddie Guerrero.
There could have been no bigger blockbuster than Eddie Guerrero vs Shawn Michaels showdown at WrestleMania The fans went insane after hearing the news.
Shawn Michaels was made to blow the roof off the place every time he would step in the ring at WrestleMania. Fans, isn’t it exciting? The raw charisma of Eddie vs the all-in attitude of HBK would have made the match legendary. Another major fan-pitted rivalry would be The Undertaker vs Sting, which would have definitely loved by the fans too. The world could have seen the most iconic faces of wrestling history face off against each other at the biggest stage.
Unfortunately, we can’t have onboard our Randy Savage vs Hulk Hogan. Judging by the fact that the match between Eddie Guerrero and Shawn Michaels was so close to fruition, it is definitely a shame that they never saw each other at WrestleMania 22.
The storyline, as sources say, was designed to jump-start the show in WrestleMania. However, Guerrero’s shocking demise had inhibited the production. His tag team fight on Smackdown was every last time he got inside the ring. ‘Latino Heat’ passed away a few days after the massive heart attack.
