"And he just went ahead and let because again. Eddie didn't talk about The child that much in the book other than it was aaron and people would ask questions. What if ray was raising that child as his own and that they wanted to keep that secret and that Everyone was forgiven and solar so forth. But but now after ray trying to embarrass any by being that eddie felt it was right time to bring it out. Yeah this The story i guess is After he had this marriage out of wedlock when his marriage was on the rocks so to speak he claimed to allow ray and his wife who were having trouble conceiving to adopt the child as their own. And wouldn't you know it. We got custody of dominick ladder match now summer slam. And yes this is the way dominicana bowl. Goodness absolutely positively. I defy you jumping different. One of the greatest stories ever told. Well it's still paying dividends today on current programming by the way. Go out of your way to watch that summer slam or listen to that summerslam episode. We did a whole episode on it. there's some fun moments in the match. I guess we should mention that Eighty finishes up the program with mysterious and he's declared dominic poppy and then Eddie wins the cage match the debut of friday night smackdown and he's got a new version of its theme song that night to titled cracking or gangsta. Lean basically the same song but without the laci and steel lyrics. They've been replaced by rap lyrics. We're trying to Really overhaul his presentation the following week. Teddy long palmer. Canon who were the network executives announced a new number one contender for batista's world championship and teddy long acts like he's about to announce very mysterious but palmer steals the mike and announces and he does a promo about how he's got a pass them he had addictions but he's found the new addiction honor respect and doing the right thing. And he's a new eddie guerrero and he wants to prove at no mercy that he and batista can have a mansion. Not hate each other. Eddie's he's facials here are phenomenal. Of course the fans don't believe him. This was great stuff was a not because eddie and police were friends and it was the feeling and the execution was believe eddie lord. The audience ends so much that they thought you know. What may maybe they met. Maybe he's gonna do at this time. Maybe any has turnover over new leaf. Because because we love our eddie guerrero and then when you get to know mercy by the time we got there. The audience was really unsure whether they had a baby face. Eddie guerrero or a. He'll eddie guerrero I remember sitting in the crowd. When the ring announcers who did championship ring announcements. And i'm just sitting right literally in the middle. The heart camera section people all around me. They announced this match the world heavyweight championship and while guys behind missing goes way. May you mean to tell me that that little guy. There was the heavyweight champion in the guy. The guy his friend city with a man that little guy. If this were real would kill that big guy and beat his fucking ass. That's how much people believed in eddie guerrero. They if you knew him and his personality in you were invested in the character. He was twenty feet tall. Four hundred bounds. Well no mercy two thousand five. We know eighties going to face batista. You've got some storytelling on the way there. One of which is pretty ridiculous Eh suppose the team with batista against him. But he's faking sick. At least that's the implication batista brings in dr. Make sure that his pal eighty is okay and the doctor gives him a rectal probe without lubricant so ladder match when eddie is proven to be well and he can work Any hits a frogsplash but then sales fainter as he celebrating with a very confused batista boy. This has vince. mcmahon humor all over it. What if he got shoved up his asked with no lube. What happens. there's some fun stuff along the way. And he's trying to convince everyone he's not this bad person and he's doing the old switcheroo with chairs and batista can't trust him but he's even wearing a batista t shirt. We finally get to no mercy. It's a really good mass because eighteen minutes and forty seconds ultimately batista wins with that spinebuster. Meltzer liked it gave it three and a quarter stars and the to shake hands but as they go off the air. You still get. The the look at eddie's is that he might turn. We just did a whole episode on this. Check it out. No mercy two thousand five iressa his last match on november eleventh a he defeats mr kennedy by disqualification using his signature. Lie cheat and steal tactics which allowed him to advance to the smackdown survivors team and according to the rumor and innuendo on the date of his death a triple threat match between himself. Batista and randy orton was supposed to take place for the world heavyweight championship where batista would have dropped the title to any guerrero Because batista needed to take some time off for an injured back. And i think that was denied by batista in his book. What do you remember Had he not passed away with what eddie had another title. Run here. well he wouldn't have had it that night. Now that's that's a false said so well it's unfortunate but Any is found unconscious in his hotel room at the marriott hotel city center in minneapolis minnesota by nephew chabot on november thirteenth. Two thousand five in a twenty twenty interview for documentary chabot explained that eddie passed out in the hotel bathroom with a toothbrush in his hand and he was barely clinging to life when chabot discovered him. Eddie.

"I probably felt a little betrayal. But just sadness and you want the guy to succeed. So bad and eddie could be his own worst enemy at times but the decision had to be made and he had to have ramifications. Had loose something in this case. It was unfortunately had to lose his job so that he could understand. You can't continue living your life the way you are well. It's got to be a punch to the gut is going to get sober after this For good i gets on a program. He gets help from his friends but most importantly he took responsibility. He works the indy circuit and eventually gets a shot. Come back april. Two thousand and two. So he's only gone for five or six months but in that five or six months made quite the impression across the indie scene There's a lot of guys who were on tv. Now who had a chance to work with eddie. During that era and the reports were he could not have been more professional more polite more respectful More willing to You had to be hearing reports like that. From his indy appearances right that this is not the same eti that we had last year without a doubt and i first of all we were helping them. Get some of those bookings and talking to promoters and talking to other people that were out there that saw him on a nightly basis and and working with them in everyone was giving glowing reviews and clear eyed and different eddie guerrero so we were hopeful. Well he He realizes this is his second chance. help me understand for none of this was a long time ago but when you cut him loose in november of two thousand one. Are there marching orders. Hey go get yourself cleaned. Get out there. On the indy circuit will help you where we can and once we've got a proven track record that you. Can you know get straightened. Stay straight will bring you back committed. He no i can come back. I've just got to do this for x. Number of days or x. number matches just prove that can be my best. Look you know it was put out there and told we wanted eddie to get healthy. We wanted to get healthy for eddie enforce family right so if he could prove. That adores never shut Or if door is shut. There's there's always a door handle the it can be opened again so you never say never in this business and the hope was that you would be able to rehab. We all swallow call rehab but be able to rehab. Everything about him is his mind body spirit and his family. So that was the goal. And i think that eddie really felt that he could cocker those demons and be able to come back and not mississippi. Help me understand. When when a guy like this gets cut does does he have a conversation with vents. Or does vince have a conversation when they come back or does it just go through human resources and folks like that and then if anything. Vince talks to him at the first. Tv it depends. It really depends on on the talent and it depends on the situation. I believe at this time that It was pretty much handle by jr. And eddie got the news and you know time to move on and hopefully we can do something with you down the line. It comes back on april first. Two thousand two. he's gonna attack. Rob van dam on raw here. He starts a feud with rob van dam and defeats him for a second intercontinental championship at backlash he'll retain the title against our vdi and insurrection. Judgment day but finally loses it back to rob van dam in a ladder match on may twenty seventh and most people remember this latter mass because a fan charged into the ring and shoves the latter over while eighties on it and of course this resulted in that idiotic fan getting punched and stomped by any but probably criminally charged as well. What are your member about this silly fan here. Trying to Involve himself in the match. And eddie guerrero. I'm giving him a little bit of the business not cool scary shit man in the The guys lucky that the only got out of there with a couple of bruises not smart and it was a different time in that. If someone came into the ring you have to understand is a performer especially when you're a heeled performer. That you don't know if a member of the audience comes jumping in the rain trying to attack you. You don't know if they have a knife or a gun. Or what the hell. Their skill level is or anything else. All you know. Is there someplace that they're not supposed to be in your world and you have to defend yourself so in our in our world today. I think that it is got to the point where you can't even defend yourself so Back then yeah it was. It was scary and we use. The guy is a is an example. Well people who were watching. That night probably won't soon forget that you've heard us talk about him and how they're helping guys look your best if you haven't yet it's time to see what they're all about you see. Here's the problem. Sixty six percent of men start to lose their hair by the thirty five.

"The story was they came in. They run dogs and refining from underneath and lost. Yeah and then. They overcame didn't they. I'm industrial trying to champions. Why we buried the fuck out of them. Goddamn him come in and make them world champion. That god damn you. Guys buried the fucking. You came in and lost three in a row. Boy you never gonna be able to do anything with them ever again that stupid. Are you coming your fucking mustache. The goal again. I figure i needed to talk for a while. So eighty says he tells the by the way we should mention that On his first night in here specifically told. Eddie guerrero do your frogsplash but severely dislocated elbow if you can so. He does exactly what you told them to. And then when he comes out of the ring injured beyond belief He's not going to be able to wrestle for three or four weeks but you ask them to come back to work personally and work and of course. You've disputed that. But that's what eddie wrote in his book. So i'll let you take it from there that i made it work hurt. Yes is this what you're saying yes okay. After returning from that injury eddie reveals a crush. She had on china and that leads to our april. Third two thousand wrestlemainia. He's doing everything in his power to prove that she could not resist his latino. Heat and eddie came up with this latino heat from the movie. Birdcage with robin williams Which references guatemalan nests. That's even a word in heat. Any says he just changes it till latino he and uses it in a promo egg gets a big reaction so the office decides to run with it. I'm fascinated by that. That latino heat wasn't from a writer's room it was just him saying. Hey what if. And it got over huge right latino heat. It wasn't a huge. Do you think this is when vince mcmahon really gets sold on eddie guerrero. You've told us before you know that you thought. Aj styles when he was in tna was a fine performer. He could do some spectacular stuff. And how could you not be entertained with his athleticism etc etc. But as silly as it was silly. Claire lynch pregnancy thing showed that hey ca do quote unquote acting. He could tell stories and that was probably something that is very important to vince. Mcmahon telling stories for wbz. Programming will this whole eighty guerrero china thing whereas some guys in the era looked at. Oh i got to work with china. I don't wanna work with china. For whatever reason. Eddie used it in a major advantage. The latino heat thing it's over audiences fall in love with him this to me. Feels like when vince realizes. Wait a minute. He's more than just a wrestler. This is a superstar your life your forwarded many opportunities many chances and you have to make decisions so you can be handed something that some people might feel is the death knell on your This is horrible and all this other shit and then there are people that take the exact same opportunity and look at it like okay. I'm gonna go out steal the show. I'm not gonna let him deny me. And they'll have to pay attention after my performance. And that's exactly what eddie in china did is they went out and said okay if this is being viewed in one way then. I'm going to show them that. I will steal the show every night and that is exactly what eddie guerrero did wasn't denied would not be denied and had people talking about him. You know in a performance. That wasn't the main attorney. Graham on the show was the main. But yet you would know that by performance right the most hated jeweler in america's excited to introduce you to someone very special. She's beautiful classy and she's brilliant. She will dazzle you. People can't stop.

"The halloween havoc match. But still great stuff. He's going to enjoy a a nice little run here Malingco with stark eight ninety seven the next night ultimo dragon. This is a talent rich roster here and it is able to impress every every time he comes through the curtain. When did when did he start to be on your radar. We know that jericho is going to come in and make a big splash and all of the radicals are are going to get over with wbf audiences when they come over in two thousand but when was addy like our events we gotta we gotta take a look at this guy man. I go all the way. Back to los gringos locus and partnership with art bar because they that was revolutionary at the time and eddie stood out all all that time when any went to wcw. Personally i was disappointed. Because i was kinda hoping that we you always looking for stars to fit in certain demographic in to me eddie guerrero. Was that mega star that fit for the hispanic market and it was also case of as always said if you if you pigeon hole someone. They will remain pigeonholed. I just thought. Eddie guerrero such a great talent that we were missing the boat and i i wanted him all the way back from gringos. Locos and eddie was Not available so. I'm not going very far. I'm in a rush to uncomfortable. Sometimes i just forget. Don't kid yourself. there's no such thing as a good excuse for not buckling up. If you've used any of these excuses or any others you're putting yourself at risk of injury or death in two thousand eighteen. Nearly ten thousand people were unbuckled when they were killed in crashes. That's forty three percent of people killed in motor vehicle. Crashes that were not wearing seatbelts. No matter what kind of vehicle you drive wearing your seatbelt is the best defense in a crash even when you sit in the backseat. You still need to buckle up. That goes for when you ride taxis or use ride. Sharing services to cops are on the lookout and riding ticket so why take the risk seatbelts..

"Geico dot com. Today that's geiko dot com guerrero in bars. Big break comes when they're noticed in late ninety four by the owner. Vw or at least the booker at the time paul heyman and they approached about wrestling for him in ninety five bar however winds up passing away before he could actually baked the shot with guerrero and eddie would say that arts death really affected him in a lot of ways including scaring him away from pills at least for a little while you know art bar was not necessarily a major name in the american wrestling scene but he was amongst the hardcore a well respected performer. When a guy like that who may be hat and quite a superstardom yet passes away. Does it still sent shockwaves through the industry. More like a ripple because he just wasn't on everyone's radar of course it does and for art his father sandy bar had been in the business of art also second generation and had spent the majority of his career in the pacific northwest working for donnellan head. Done some other things Really made a name for himself in mexico and people had taken notice so art was at a place that maybe things were going to change for our bar and that he would break out of whatever bubble that he had been in for all these years and people did know our bar they did. They did like his work. Because back then i think most people would make a job through the pacific northwest and nc sandy bar and art bar and he was the best best known unknown in the business so as we sat anyone's up joining up with the cw which works out really well for him. He wins the television championship from two cold scorpio in his debut match on april fifth. Nineteen ninety five at three way dance. It goes on to have a series of claim matches with dean malingco before they both get an opportunity to sign with world championship wrestling later. In the year he wound up losing the tv title to malingco on july twenty first that year but gets it back just a week later on the twenty eighth i and then ultimately drops it back to to cold on august twenty fifth and the next day they have their last match which is going to end in a draw in a two out of three falls match at ec w arena and after the match the entire locker room empties out and the two are carried around the ring by their feller. Fellow wrestlers in the crowd is chanting. Please don't go. This series of matches. Here with eddie guerrero dean malingco legendary for not just the performers. But he cw. And i've always been curious knowing working relationship. You're going to have just a few years after this. With paul heyman. C w why wasn't the wwf interested in dane. Malingco eddie guerrero was it. Wcw solely pursuing the cruiserweight division. And without that because that was not a priority in the wb f. They just weren't. They weren't really checking all the boxes. I think more than anything was their size. Yeah it just say they were not the biggest guys in the world so Help help change. Vince is thinking on that. And all i know we. We hate to talk. Talk in generalities. But we've often heard the old vince mcmahon tests from way back win was to the turn heads in an airport to they stand out and a lot of that is based on size and we had these big hulking monsters through the eighty s when hogan was looking for a monster factory of opponents. But bret hart was the champion at this time shawn. Michaels is going to be the very next year and they're not the biggest gas they're not they're not small men. I'm not suggesting that. But they're they're not six foot five bodybuilders. Is there a time where you could say. This guy changed his mind. I think sean i think sean brenner. Probably the two that were able to break through those barriers imaginary barriers. As they were that that they were able to kind of work through it and get noticed. let's let's keep it moving here. Eighties biggest break happens when he gets. This call from kevin sullivan is a chance to come to. Wcw sullivan has one promise. Any won't be jobbed out like a lot of the other smaller wrestlers but he only promises opportunity is first year. There is like a dream as was the case with. Cw he arrives alongside dean malingco wa. Tube is very best friends and they have a series of matches with. Wcw is first wcw matches actually on august thirtieth nineteen ninety-five. These tv. tapings were famously. Vader got in a fight with paul orndorff and eddie would be working within malingco that night. His tv debut fall brawl ninety five in a no contest with alex. Right on the september thirtieth edition of saturday night. They do a sit down interview with eddie talking about growing up in a wrestling family and footage you shown him and aaa but of course no mention of ec w here but this is kind of a big deal to bring in a talent and not only put him on tv and on pay per view quickly. But these little sit down interviews. This is kind of a cool opportunity for a new performance of the company it is. It was different presentation allowed their personality. And you come out a little bit and sometimes and sometimes not too because you found that maybe they didn't have the greatest personality and but yes. It was a unique way to introduce talent. Definitely eight is going to round out ninety five in matches against hillman and disco jerry. Land and big boban handful of other guys. One of his biggest matches happened on december. eighteenth he finally gets to work with ric flair. Gusta georgia Flare gets the wind but of course he cheated dammit ashford..

"You're going to get a buzz and again so sleepy. I don't know what you are. I don't wanna make assumptions. We are sounds like you're something in your in your in your vocal tone if you will any has always wanted to be a pro wrestler. His whole life instead of jungle gym it a wrestling ring in his backyard. It didn't get to watch his father wrestling in his prime but he watched him toward the end and eighty still felt that excitement is family. Didn't pressure him to enter the business. But he felt the pressure of the guerrero name and because of that he always strived for excellence. And it's interesting to find where someone's inner drive comes from you. Think that this family pressure and this reputation is something that really pushed him to excel at the level he did. I mean he's going to overcome a lot of obstacles in his career. And we're gonna cover a lot of them today but is this just instilled in him as a young person. I think it was instilled at genetic more than anything. I think that you look at eddie. Guerrero eddie. guerrero knew what he wanted to do. From the time that He jumped out of his mama's body. And said i wanna wrestle his brothers. All wrestlers is father when the greatest of all times and any looked at this is his life calling. And i don't believe that eddie ever had any consideration to do anything else with his life so yeah it was. It just was genetic in this case. Any was wired to be a wrestler man. Christmas is going to be here before you know it. Unfortunately it's going to be extra stress this year with lots of added expenses for.

"I enjoyed being that he'll and then I learned what the baby face needed, and Eddie, you're go both ways and no pun intended. Because he got what what both sides met who needed. What like as a baby face, you need that he'll to take the time and not pick you write the GOP like let you sell it selling his kind of because things are so fast today. Not that it's bad. But everybody took another second back. And so just happen. You would react way. More. Business. If you go all the way back to the eighties. They sold forever. But any again, you you feel you figure that out. And that's why coming from where we started Conan all the way back to one was that was like it was nine ninety nine three. No, I'm not talking about what we AAA J J steak versus you wasn't it. It was jam man. It was the guy alley forum. Whatever daily forum note was that the. Sports. Sports reader, the I not rustling is very cyclical and right now. Thanks to you. Another huge resurgence in all of wrestling. But I- wrestling downturn big time, and I had not seen the crowd like Jake catch such heat. We'd Conan like when the shit hit the fan at the end Jake was down. He had taken. What was the the little guy in the white outfit? What was his name? Lou said, no, the little guy don't Moscow, Greta Basel, you're out his he does the splash off the top rope that shake, and he snatches and bodies Rams and comes down on. And the place comes on glued. They were throwing shit at Jake at one point I'm over on the ringside and they throw a toenail clipper. And j trop that he goes we're getting Gada here. Piss on us all sorts of shit. It was down the match that night was was was loss. Grows. Local laws. Ringers logos. Eighty grow love machine versus octagon and Santo. If you guys haven't seen this match, please. When worlds collide one. Nineteen Ninety-three it's juicy and you can see right there. The genius of Eddie grow. And we mentioned love machine earlier taking way before his time both guys, but what a great he'll team at that point in time. If you really wanna see how wrestling was back, then look it. It was in my match with better why which was a cage match, and so now much sheen and Eddie have come out which are part of our group gringos locals right there shaved and they're coming out the do an angle in my match and the fans are so rabid that. Now, they're starting to fight with Eddie, and I can see Eddie going to the crowd and like your your own security at that point. Good mad from self. Right. And then I come out of the cage, and you'd still on that. If you look up almost collide, you see it. I go into the crowd. I've ever everybody's just going nuts. But you know to me, bro. It's really incredible. Because when I think that like when I first met Eddie, and I knew he was great. I just knew he was great. I just never knew how great like he was one of the greatest of all time when I met Ray, I knew he was great. But I only knew him like in Qana, I never knew he'd end up being like one of the greatest of all time and. You never know the time. Yeah. You don't know all just say rally with you. I put you in the top five of all time. Because when I and this is true story true story when I lost the title to you was a television title television, in Chattanooga, Tennessee that you were going to WWE and your punishment was lose the title to me, which you didn't give a shit, right? And I remember first of all an incredible pop and second of all I remember going up going. I see why a lot of people consider you young ring general because all you cared about. What's making sure I got all he had this finished called tequila sunrise, those a special I said, dude, if you don't sense that shit in I'm not tapping up..

Jersey don't mess. He grew. He grew as by the end. I mean when when people say to me like who's your favorite guy to work for me? I never worked with Eddie and Debbie a lot. We say we're the greatest tag team that never was w w the member they put you guys together. Like once or twice the first six weeks were great. We would've been do. You guys were great. It was incredible. I called us a and way. Spanish, and I called this north and south of the border. They put us together for for six weeks. We had the chemistry of all chemistry. It was like pill men in Austin. But they never gave it the next level. But the point to me was if you ask me, Chris Jericho all these years of doing this who might be the best of all time. Everyone says flare everyone says Sean agreed agreed bread heart agreed deep down inside deep down inside. I think Eddie grow might have been the best pro wrestler of all time. Put him up there. No matter what checks all the boxes. You know what I mean? Everything acting character work creativity, fearlessness. Call eat in the ring who close in the ring. Now when you with great benches, bro. That's the thing about. That's the thing about Eddie, bro. That one of the things that I had asked him as where did you come up with that line from Latino he and he said this movie called the birdcage some some bird case, Robin Williams and. The whole movie too low for it. We're like, oh, are you afraid of my Latino heat? So he had gotten that from there. And then the other one was bro. How did you get into that? Because he just became an extraordinary character. You know, how shy he was. Yes. And you know, and he dairies I write very super duper Cy. He was like he told me that he saw this movie. And a lot of you guys that I've seen this movie. I think it's probably American me where you can give me some of that on remember that guy that played that character who is like super, hey table. He had he had studied him. Check. Check it out Americans. The other thing. I wanna ask you about this Dallas when you're talking about great wrestlers, you have to be able to be an awesome. He'll awesome baby face. And there's not a lot that can do it flare. Terrible baby-faced. Great. He'll Raymond's there. I don't think I've ever seen.

"Company Eddie grow during that time ninety seven when he was super ripped wet hair oil. But yes, but he could never get. He would never work it might work because you 'cause you worked with everybody, but he wouldn't. But I worked I worked with him before this. That's what helped me get the savage like he got me over in in what way tells well, if you take like ninety six you look at the beginning ninety six going, there's no way this guy draws money, and that's true. Because no one lead you nobody know all the way up to that. But when main Eddie started to work together, which is round the middle towards the end of ninety six. If you have a match daddy. You couldn't get have a match what I'm really going to think that match out knowing all the shit that he can do stuff that. Maybe he hasn't done yet. I know we can do. So we went out there and then night after night people started go. Wow, DP's good back with Eddie Guerrero. So it just up my grade. And then I went to Chabot goes Eddie was going away to go to Japan junior now June. Yeah. And the end goal was I'm gonna go out there just had that bored of the rings thing which was bullshit. Did you? I don't even remember that one. Right. Exactly. The deal was I was just going over an enhancement matches and getting the finish over. And that's because they wouldn't give anybody to be in that scenario, and they put me when job, oh, they want me to have a match with daddy any slips over. And then you hit him in the diamond cutter afterwards. I said how about I hit him with three diamond gutters. All right. And then take the whip out and grab the reps. The belt and whip the shit out of them. Java comes down sets are match first time, we work boom. He beats me now, at least pay per view match me job on hell. She was young. What was he twenty to travel had maybe twenty matches when he came in? He was young when he was another natural. And we had a good match. And then I slipped over on that with the finish. And then it led to me in any. So Eddie got me over in a way with I love what you think. But I really give a shit what they think in the back, and I'm not talking about the office. I'm talking about these guys. I care what the boys in the bag thing. Like, okay, dude. Now, if you just changed this. There was a match where I was working at in buffalo. I will never forget it. And and you know, Eddie, he always walked that line the baby face being he'll so they started chanting DP. And I grab that mic. And it's the last thing I need is you sons the benches cure inmate. And what happened they shut up? That's not the reaction. I. They listened sorry. I eighty goes over on me go to the back. Scott hall me over because what are you doing? Are you talking about speeding to heal? He goes not. No, no, no, you care that they react. You're a superstar start thinking like that. So it changed my way of thinking at that spot that moment right there. So now, we're at Halloween havoc. And I've been beaten up on eighty on TV pretty good. He's suppose to go over ninety six how how big he comes off the top rope like do bringing down to me on the floor keeps going we'll get towards the finish. And I go to do some doom, and he goes diamond cutter. I know you're supposed to go up to. Gutter? Okay. Watch that much. I mean, it's from here doubt. Oh, one two three.

"Tell us what we term for you. Right. He just picked that out. And and no man, he just started calling me we to mean, it was I don't know. It was more of a like a sentimental value to him to just nickname me. We is it a made up name or made up. We do all of sudden. Take it. And that's spelled W E W E T O. Oh. And we actually actually show that we wait though. In memory, buddy. I wanna think of all the matches with Eddie, and we'll get more into it. But you talking about that that classic with WCW, and then you moved into WB guys work together so much. What was it such great chemistry? Like, maybe one of the best pairings that I've ever seen in wrestling history. So good where did that come from? That means balls in Spanish. With the little sign. Right. Well. I think that just just our the way we raised being second generation wrestlers coming from. Family that grew up in wrestling. My uncle being the one who trained me, and and you know, meet starting as young kid. How old was I when I first met you eight years old. Eight possibly years old. He was already training with my uncle. Wow. You know, I was just a kid. I mean when I was eighteen I weighed one fifteen imagine how much. Fifteen. This babies born that way more than. When when you grow up in the business, especially back, then you know, you you have a sentimental value for this business and you cherish it, you protected, and I think Eddie saw that in me took the under his wing and just the chemistry. Just clicked having the same style the style. Him starting up in Mexico me as well. And then transcending over to the US Ballo. Ballo followed his his footsteps. You guys weren't EC. W you guys got signed by WCW. Then I came into EC w then I went over to WCW, then you guys went to W W F at the time. You know, then eventually I and my way over did you feel especially in WW because it's interesting times has changed. But at that point in time, I in you were on the top top of the top the rest of us are used to say, it was kind of the Indian caste system wherever you come in. That's where you stay. Did you feel that UNLV and maybe on Eddie's because Eddie at this point in time when you guys work with the phantom of the opera? Was paid. You can tell this possibly the most over he'll in the.

"The first ever not leave chats ever. It was not a great movie anyways. Go ahead. So travel was one of your heroes. Right. So I had gone this travel. Get read on I went to see like all the young high pliers that you know. I think Ray was also influenced by God denial Thunderbirds super Astro. They were like all on that show and afterwards Chabot stayed to watch Eddie wrestle. And so so I went over there to meet travel, and he was like kinda criticizing is this a Miami. No, this is in Doina Tijuana. Gotcha. And the wanna. And so so he was so Eddie was in the ring and who's kind of like critiquing him. And I was like are you related to that guy? And he was like, yeah, that's my brother. And so like when the match was over he introduced me to Eddy, immunity clicked real quick. Because almost everybody in the dressing room was mostly like Mexicans that just poke Spanish and Eddie was bilingual. I was bilingual. He lived in a border city. I lived in a border city. So it kind kinda just kind of clicked. And then when I went to white is he invited me to train in his backyard and starts at this point in time. You were like really a big bodybuilder type guy just trying to get into the business right at a time. When there wasn't a lot of those guys, especially in Mexico, where the body types for never kind of those big muscle guys. They're more. I always think of kind of the tiny co or El dandy at barrel chested guys are in shape. But they weren't looking like you. With the lattes the Avs and the chest. So for Eddie to see you. Did he take you seriously at first? Yeah. When so what had happened was coincidentally enough? I had actually quit my job. And I went with his own goal. Instead, you'll see we went on a tour like all these places like near the desert and one of them was to what it's WaWa, and I had forgotten that had he lived there. And I just went with his was went to wrestle. And they were like, yeah. Who's this big bodybuilder and the guy I'm training. Gory still alive going still alive. Yeah. Gory was still alive. Yeah. So so basically, he was like, yeah. You'd think he could do an angle and so that night they did some angle with me and it got super over. And they were like we want you to stay here. He met again because Eddie lived there in. So let me ask you a question just a quick side with the first time I ever met Ray. And this is a serious true story was maybe early nineteen ninety three. So that's fricken twenty five years ago with a guy called art bar the love machine, and that's. We could do a whole podcast just on the machine, but we were all staying in Talca the plaza Madrid in Mexico City and art was in the room. And I was I would just gotten there. And art was maybe looking for somebody to hang out with whatever was he knocks on the door, and he opens the door, and he's got this. He comes inside with a little kid and. Wow. He he pulls out some alcohol and some other party favors, and it's like. Abriel ios chewing tobacco. About. Hey, bro. You want to hang out? I'm like are here. You can't bring this kid. Your do. Get arrested. He's not a kid. He's eighteen years old. I'm like this guy. You gotta be kidding me. And it was Ramos stereo, maybe. And he said to me he goes, this is true. This is not a good member for this. He said I'm a big fan. Hopefully, we can work something I'm looking at him. And I'm a nobody. But. This guy. How much did you weigh them us probably one fifteen one? That's not kilos guys one hundred fifteen pounds. And in my mind almost asked him show me some ID case, but he's working in the business. So I met you in that timeframe in Mexico ninety three when did you meet Eddie Guerrero, I actually met? Well, I ran into Eddie back in Tijuana as well as a fan, I hadn't even started wrestling yet, and he would come over and do shows and Tijuana under the promotion of incoming mortar which was the biggest promotion at the time in Doina Mexico..
