When Eddie Guerrero died in 2005, he was arguably one of the hottest superstars in the WWE. Before his tragic death, the charismatic Tejano proved that you didn’t need to be a 6’5″ beast like The Rock or Randy Orton to become a beloved WWE champ. More than a decade after Guerrero’s death, the legendary status of “Latino Heat” has continued to grow. So of course when the WWE 2K franchise decided to name their latest DLC “Legends Pack,” Eddie Guerrero was front and center on the line-up.

During the era of “Latino Heat,” Eddie was the villain fans loved. His slogan was meant to make him sound like a bad guy, but fans loved repeating the words: “I lie! I cheat! I steal!” Guerrero’s ring entrances featured bouncing low riders that proudly flew Mexican flags. He taunted the crowd as he made his way to the ring. People loved every minute of it.

Inside the ring, Eddie Guerrero was a beast.

While fans ate up his con-artist charisma, Eddie’s ring ability was the real deal. The popularity of “Latino Heat” pushed him all the way to a championship match with Brock Lesnar, where they fought in one of the most spectacular championship matches of all time. When Eddie finally walked away with the win, it was a win for everyone in that arena, and those watching around the world.

While Some People Are Excited About Ronda Rousey’s First WWE Victory, Others Are Not Impressed

While Some People Are Excited About Ronda Rousey’s First WWE Victory, Others Are Not Impressed

After her Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) career came to an end, fans were uncertain about Ronda Rousey’s path moving forward – until recently.

The former Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter made her WrestleMania debut this weekend alongside professional wrestler Kurt Angle. WrestleMania is an annual event produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), which consists of several matches for competing titles. This year was WWE’s 34th annual WrestleMania event and although it was Rousey’s very first time competing in the WWE ring, she impressed the audience with her savage win against wrestlers Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.

As soon as Rousey got tagged into the ring by her partner Angle, the TV show commentators exclaimed, “Here comes Rousey! Call the cops!”

Rousey did not give McMahon a single break in the ring.

What made WWE fans even more excited about this match, was the moment Rousey cornered and socked Triple H as if he was a punching bag.

No. Mercy.

She also had Triple H over her shoulders at one point in the match.

And Triple H is not small at all.

Overall, the WWE audience voted Rousey’s tag team match to be the most enjoyable out of all the matches from this year’s WrestleMania.

However, other people on the internet showed that they weren’t happy nor impressed about Rousey’s transition from UFC to WWE.

In Rousey’s defense, people explained that although WWE consists of choreographed matches, they’re still not easy and actually take a lot of training.

In a post interview Rousey’s partner and mentor Angle expressed how proud and optimistic he felt about Rousey’s future with sports entertainment. “That’s her first match and look how she blew the roof off the joint. Ronda has a big future here. This is what she was meant to do,” Angle said.

Similarly, Rousey expressed her gratitude for this opportunity in an interview with ESPN. “I thought I would never say this, but I’m so happy I lost those fights [to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes] because it led me here. This is so worth it,” Rousey said.

Rousey’s future with WWE is not set in stone, but fans can’t wait to see her grow as a professional wrestler if she continues on this path.

Rey Mysterio Makes An Appearance At WWE’s Royal Rumble And Fans Lose It

Every year World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) hosts their Royal Rumble, a mega brawl where 30 wrestlers, well, rumble, until one is left standing. It starts with two fighters, then every minute another is added to the ring. Wrestlers are eliminated by being tossed out of the ring over the top rope.

This is one of WWE’s biggest events and this year there was a very special surprise appearance.

Oscar Gutierrez, commonly known as Rey Mysterio, became most popular during his time in the WWE in the early 2000’s. He’s an icon in wrestling and within the Latino community thanks to his skills, Lucha Libre mask, and the pride he showed for his Mexican heritage and hometown San Diego. Although Mysterio is short compared to other wrestlers, he is fast on his feet and known for his popular wrestling move called the “619,” which is the area code of his hometown.

Mysterio fans across the Internet were immediately taken back to their childhood as they saw the icon make his return to the ring.

I was so shook as soon as I heard his theme song being played at the match.

After the match, Mysterio talked about how blessed he felt to be back on the WWE ring, even if it was just for one night.

After hearing the crowd’s loud cheers, Mysterio said, “I’m truly blessed to come back and to realize that the fans don’t forget about you.”

And as a former Mysterio fan, I can say that I’ll never forget his Lucha Libre mask, unapologetic Mexican pride, and all those times I attempted the “619” on my brothers growing up.

It was nice seeing you on the ring again, Mysterio!
