10 Best Eddie Guerrero WWE Matches
Celebrate the late Latino Heat's birthday with these classics.
Eddie Guerrero would have turned 54-years-old on October 9, 2021.
Sadly, Eddie passed away on November 13, 2005, at the age of just 38. While his death was tragic and is still felt to this day, Latino Heat left an indelible legacy full of wonderful moments and matches.
In a career spanning almost twenty years, Eddie forged a reputation as one of the best of all time and worked to a standard few could ever hope to match across runs in Mexico, Japan, the United States and beyond.
The Hall of Famer had some amazing matches for groups like New Japan Pro-Wrestling, AAA and WCW, but he truly emerged as a global superstar while in WWE, particularly during his second spell in the company.
While fans continue to mourn the loss of one of the most talented and charismatic performers to ever lace up a pair of boots, they can also continue to celebrate his life and career by revisiting some of his best matches.
Even just looking at a three-and-a-half-year period in WWE, you soon see that you're spoilt for choice.
Viva Eddie Guerrero.
10. Vs. John Cena - SmackDown (September 11, 2003)
Eddie Guerrero flipped from babyface to heel and back to babyface again in the summer of 2003.
WWE tried to make him a bad guy, but fans wouldn't boo his lying, cheating and stealing ways and, eventually, the United States Champion began a feud with John Cena, who was also on the cusp of becoming a big fan favourite.
Their brief rivalry climaxed on the September 11, 2003, episode of SmackDown in a 'Latino Street Fight', which was basically a parking lot brawl.
Latino Heat was an artist in the ring, but he could transfer that creativity to other arenas, too, as he proved here. He and Cena beat the hell out of each other as they brawled around the automobiles, hitting offensive moves like suplexes and flapjacks onto the steel as their fellow superstars watched and cheered them on.
Both got their heads put through windows and Eddie even burned Cena with one of the car's cigarette lighters. It was a wild and brutal match and both men must have been sore for a few days afterwards.
Guerrero finally got Cena down long enough to hit a Frog Splash from one car to another, thanks to a timely assist from nephew Chavo, who was returning after months out with an injury.
A very unique match type that you don't see very often, extremely well done by two pros.
