The Honky Tonk Man passes his thoughts onto the Guerrero family at his website.
“It’s another sad day in wrestling as I heard of Eddie Guerrero’s death. I wish to send my condolences to the Guerrero family in this time of sadness. I met Eddie only once. It was at a big show in Winnipeg with myself, Beefcake, and Eddie. He was going back to WWe the following weekend. He was very polite and soft spoken to me.
I knew his brothers Chavo Sr., Mando, and Hector. I have had matches with the three of them. They were great workers who brought the Lucha style to America and bended it with American style pro wrestling. They were great guys to be around also.
As I watched Eddie during his time in WCW and later WWe, I could see he was the most talented in his ring work and his interviews. I thought the Latino Heat stuff he did was fantastic. It is so sad that he will no longer entertain us.
One of the messages on WWE.com’s Eddie tribute page – HERE – is from David Marquez, on behalf of New Japan Pro Wrestling, Antonio and Simon Inoki…
“Mr. Inoki, Simon and myself extend our deepest condolences on the loss of Eddie. As you are aware, Eddie spent time working for our company and there are many people in NJPW that have fond memories of him as Black Tiger II. Although Eddie will be most remembered as an outstanding WWE Superstar he is an essential part of our company’s history too.

Bill Goldberg’s official website opens with a tribute to Eddie…
Sadly, we’ve lost another. Eddie was one of the boys who really helped me early on in my career. I’m forever grateful to him for that and deeply saddened by his passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Guerrero family, especially his wife, children and Chavo Jr.”
