There will be a number of special commentaries on the upcoming WWE Eddie Guerrero “Cheating Death, Stealing Life” Double DVD.
There will be an amazing 5 hours of extras on the set. The DVD’s main feature will be Guerrero’s feature on UPN from a couple of months ago. The DVD will feature alternative commentaries featuring Guerrero with Rob Van Dam, Rey Mysterio, and Dean Malenko.
The WWE saw how much the alternative commentary idea did for Chris Benoit’s DVD and now wants to use the same strategy with Guerrero’s. The Chris Benoit DVD used Todd Grisham with Benoit and Malenko, with Grisham’s performance panned by fans. This time around, it will be just the wrestlers handling alternative commentary.
The promotional notes for the main feature on the DVD reads:
“Born into Mexico’s first family of sports-entertainment, Eddie Guerrero’s career choice was only natural. In the ring, Eddie was unbeatable. He was part of the most popular tag team in Mexico. Fans worldwide were captivated with his high-flying style. Soon, he moved to Japan and experienced similar success.
After returning to the United States, Eddie faced a challenge he was not prepared for – addiction. Surviving a car accident that almost killed him, Eddie felt he was bulletproof, resulting in reckless behavior that put his life, career and marriage in jeopardy.
Then it all fell apart.
The true test of any man is how he handles adversity. In one of the most inspiring stories in the history of sports-entertainment, Eddie Guerrero not only regained his life, he surpassed his wildest dreams. This is his story.”
