WWE will air a brand new documentary dedicated to Eddie Guerrero this Sunday detailing his contributions to SmackDown ahead of its 1000th episode.
SmackDown has been on the air for almost 20 years and this Tuesday WWE's blue brand will celebrate its 1000th episode. Ever since its inception, SmackDown has had the arduous task of competing with its older brother, Monday Night Raw. Despite that tall task, there are times when it has been just as good if not better than WWE's flagship show.
Some fans would argue that now is one of those times. With the likes of AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, and Becky Lynch calling Tuesday nights home, it's not surprising that many prefer it to Raw. It's not the best era SmackDown has ever enjoyed, though. That era took place during the early 2000s, just a few years after it debuted.
One of the men responsible for that time in SmackDown's history being remembered so fondly is Eddie Guerrero. The WWE Hall Of Famer had some epic battles at the time with the likes of Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, and his good friend Rey Mysterio. This Sunday, WWE is going to reminisce about those times via a documentary that will air on the promotion's YouTube channel at 1 pm ET, as announced on WWE.com.
The Guerrero documentary is the next episode in WWE's Untold series and will focus on Latino Heat's influence during SmackDown's early years. It will feature interviews from some of his greatest rivals, Superstars he influenced such as Sasha Banks, and also his wife Vickie Guerrero. There has been a lot said and documented about Guerrero's career with WWE, but nothing quite like this by the sounds of it.
Although SmackDown's 1000th episode will never be complete since Guerrero can't be there, a lot of other Superstars who shaped the brand will be in attendance. Edge will return, The Undertaker will make an appearance, and Mysterio will return to in-ring action. Batista, who also spent much of his WWE career as a SmackDown Superstar, will also be on the show as he reunites with his Evolution buddies.
