The New WWE 2K17 “Legends Pack” Is Bringing The Latino Heat
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.
In a trailer for WWE 2K17’s “Legends Pack,” we see Latino Heat in classic form.
The detail is great. Guerrero is even decked out in his “Scarface” style “Latino Heat” shirt.
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.
WWE 2K17’s “Legends Pack” brings Eddie, as well as a few other fan favorites, back into the squared circle.
“Legends Pack” offers players a chance to play as Eddie Guerrero, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, Tatanka and Sycho Sid.
