– Following are promotional notes for the upcoming WWE Eddie Guerrero “Cheating Death, Stealing Life” double DVD:

“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.”

The DVD — scheduled for a September release — will include the UPN special that aired earlier this year, as well as five hours of extras including:
