Sasha Banks Didn't Know Eddie Guerrero Had Passed Away When She Attended WWE Tribute Show

Banks is a lifelong fan of Guerrero

Sasha Banks has recalled being in attendance for the WWE Monday Night Raw Tribute show for Eddie Guerrero. 

Guerrero sadly passed away on Sunday 13 November 2005, with the promotion holding tribute shows for Latino Heat. 

Banks has often spoken openly about her admiration for Guerrero, and the Boss has now opened up on being in Minneapolis for the show, only to discover her hero had passed away.

Appearing on Ariel Helwani Meets, Banks said: "It's kind of crazy how the universe works and how that happened to be in Minneapolis where I lived at the time. I was so excited to go to that show. All I wanted to do was to show Eddie Guerrero my sign.

"All I was thinking about was, 'Oh my God, I hope Eddie sees my sign.' I won second-row tickets that night from doing this autograph signing with Ashley Massaro, and I remember going into the arena and I saw all these signs that said 'Rest in Peace, Eddie Guerrero.' I was so confused. I was like, 'Well, maybe Minneapolis doesn't like Eddie', because it was advertised as Eddie Guerrero vs. Undertaker, which I just assumed everybody loved The Undertaker, versus Batista.

"A fan came up to me and he told me that Eddie Guerrero passed away that night and everything inside of me just broke. I couldn't believe that my hero passed away. I was crying like a little baby. I was in my mom's arms just bawling. I couldn't believe it, but I was just like, 'Wow, I have to watch it. I'm here for Eddie.'"
