Rey Mysterio Visits Eddie Guerrero’s Grave For First Time (Photo)

Rey Mysterio shares a photo of himself visiting the grave of WWE Hall Of Famer Eddie Guerrero for the first time in 13 years.

It was a very difficult day for WWE star Rey Mysterio. “The Master Of The 619” visited the grave of his dear friend, WWE Hall Of Famer Eddie Guerrero, for the first time in 13 years. It wasn’t since Guerrero’s passing in November of 2005 when Mysterio was last there. He posted the following on Instagram:

“Always had a hard time wanting to visit Eddie & found myself cowardly refusing it due to the pain & memories from that day………Finally this past Monday, after 13yrs, I had the courage to visit him and have a one on one moment with him…. & …….exactly what I feared of happening, happened.

“Memories from that day were flashing through my head but his presence was much stronger and was able to cope and maintain my composure. After my conversation & connection with him I left with a Huge internal Smile and felt a soothing & peaceful! Eddie has been such an inspiration not only to me but to many & will always continue to do so.

“I witnessed that day, that future wrestlers who never had the opportunity to meet him took the time to stop by and pay their respects wishing they would of had the honor and privilege to have met him & been around him like many of us did! I truly miss you WeeWeeto!”

Guerrero’s Professional Wrestling Legacy

Guerrero began his professional wrestling career in the late ’80s. He worked for promotions in Mexico before going on to work for the likes of New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). He made quite the name for himself once he landed in WCW as a member of the cruiserweight division. It was there that he put on some of the best matches in professional wrestling history.

In 2000, Guerrero signed with WWE before WCW went under. However, he was eventually released after a drunk driving arrest in November of 2001. In 2002 Guerrero returned to WWE on an episode of Monday Night RAW, attacking Rob Van Dam. Over the years, Guerrero blossomed into one of the WWE Universe’s biggest fan favorites. He captured a WWE Championship, two European Titles, a United States Championship, and two Intercontinental Titles.

In November of 2005, Guerrero passed away in his hotel room in Minnesota due to an underlying heart condition. He was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2006 several months after his passing.
