Here are some highlights:
Vickie Guerrero was asked if she was considering leaving the company when Eddie Guerrero died:
“I did. After I inducted Eddie into the Hall of Fame, me and my daughters and Chavo, there was Chris and Rey, I thought, that’s it. That’s how well I’m supposed to be. in the wrestling family. I left a few months to take care of my daughters first because we were going through so much at home. In order to be able to get away, I don’t think I really paid attention to wrestling When Johnny called me, it was probably in August and said, ‘Hey, we’d like to bring you over for a few months just to help with some of the storylines and keep Eddie’s name and memory alive.’ ‘I told him, “Just two months because I have the daughters. We were living and Phoenix and I were trying to sell my house to go to El Paso. He said,’ Sure, just two months. That’s very well.’ Two months and I was memorizing the promos and I was doing really well. They would say, “We want to extend you for another year and see how it goes. A year ended up being 10 years. I still am still amazed that I got to stay.” as long as a Superstar.
Vickie was asked what she thought Eddie would do today if he was still alive:
“He always wanted to open his own wrestling school just before his death. I think he would have been a great agent. I think that would have been something he would have liked to have mentored a lot of young guys. I can see him being an actor because he was so entertaining.
Vickie said she was working on a book:
“I have stories in there sharing Eddie with the audience. In the next three weeks, we’re going to publishers and we’re going to try to sell our book. I have been working on it for three years, and with Covid, everything stopped, but we are starting to resume it. Hope we get a buyer and then we go print and then it will be released, hopefully by August or September. I am really proud of the book. It’s my side of living with Eddie and living a life of a housewife and then becoming a Superstar. It’s pretty amazing.
