Eddie Guerrero is one of the greatest wrestlers to ever step foot inside a squared circle, and we’ve seen many a wrestler pay tribute to him over the years, whether it be Sasha Banks wearing Eddie inspired gear at WrestleMania, or various stars using his famous cheating tactics during matches. But the latest tribute is a more personal, heartfelt one from Smackdown Live star Aiden English.
If you didn’t know, English is married to Shaul Guerrero, who is the daughter of Vickie and Eddie. With the WWE recently in El Paso, the hometown of Latino Heat, English took to Instagram to pay a very emotional tribute to his late father-in law.
I'm not taking a selfie or snapping a picture of myself here...that's because this isn't about me. And honestly, it's not really about you. It's about what you've given me. Something you never knew you'd be doing. It's about the greatest gift I've ever had in my life. The gift you and the woman I now get to call "mom" gave me is a blessing beyond words. And that's what this is about. It's about her. She fills my day with love, laughter, joy and endless support. She sees me as I am and takes it all in with full heart - a job not always so easy. And here we are tonight in hers and your hometown to do what you spent your whole life doing to raise and support her and the family. I'm working tonight to try to do the same for her and to do the same for our future family. Here's to work. Here's to home. Here's to familia. And here's to her.
He uses the photo of Eddie to express his gratitude to Eddie for inspiring him, as well as giving him the greatest gift in the world, “the woman he now gets to call ‘mom’”, and no matter if you like or dislike English, it’s an incredibly beautiful sentiment.
Granted, English is unlikely to ever ascend to the heights that Latino Heat did in wrestling, and that’s okay, because Eddie was without a doubt one of a kind. But there’s no doubt that Eddie would be looking down upon English and be incredibly proud of the way he is representing him and the rest of the Guerrero’s. It’s unlikely that he’ll ever win the WWE Championship, but he’s entertaining, and when given the chance he proves that he’s a fantastic wrestler. His family should be very proud of what he’s doing.
