Here are some highlights:
Vickie Guerrero was asked if she considered leaving the business when Eddie Guerrero passed away:
“I did. After we inducted Eddie into the Hall of Fame, me and my girls and Chavo, there was Chris and Rey, I thought, this is it. This is the extent of where I’m supposed to be in the wrestling family. I left for some months to first take care of my girls because we were going through so much at home. To be able to step away, I don’t think I was really paying attention to the wrestling business that much. When Johnny called me, it probably was August and said, ‘Hey, we would like to bring you in for like a few months just to help with some of the storylines and keep Eddie’s name and memory alive.’ I told him, ‘Just two months because I have the girls.’ We were living and Phoenix and I was trying to sell my house to go to El Paso. He said, ‘Sure, just two months. That’s fine.’ Two months and I was memorizing promos and I was doing really well. They were like, ‘We want to extend you another year and see how it goes.’ A year ended up being 10 years. I sit back still amazed that I was able to go that long as a Superstar.”
Vickie was asked what she thinks Eddie would be doing today if he were still alive:
“He always wanted to open up his own wrestling school right before he passed away. I think he would have been a great agent. I think that would have been something he would have loved to have done was mentor a lot of the younger guys. I can see him being an actor because he was so entertaining.”
Vickie said she is working on a book:
“I have stories in there sharing Eddie with the public. In the next three weeks, we are going to the publishers and we are going to try and sell our book. I’ve been working on it for the last three years, and with Covid, everything just stopped, but we are starting to pick it up again. Hopefully, we’ll get a buyer and then we will go to print and then it will be released hopefully by August or September. I’m really proud of the book. It’s my side of living with Eddie and going through life as a housewife and then turning Superstar. It’s pretty incredible.”
