WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has named a former much missed WWE Superstar as possibly the most talented in-ring performer of all time.
Jim Ross recently opened up about the WWE career of the late, great Eddie Guerrero on his Grilling JR podcast. Guerrero was at the top of his game in WWE in 2005 and ascended to the company’s highest honour the previous year when he captured the WWE Championship.
On November 13th, 2005, the wrestling world was rocked by the news that Eddie Guerrero had passed away at just 38 years old.
For Jim Ross, who called many of Latino Heat’s matches in WWE, there was perhaps nobody better in the ring than Guerrero:
“I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a more talented in-ring performer than Eddie Guerrero. He had great matches, Conrad [host Conrad Thompson], with so many different guys in WWE when I was there. When I brought him in there, he had been waiting for this opportunity. He was hungry, he was angry, he’s p*ssed off all the time because he thought he had to wait too long to get his break, and I can’t disagree with that.”
The WWE Universe recently paid tribute to Eddie Guerrero on what would have been the star’s 55th birthday.
