We all know that Eddie Guerrero used to ‘lie, cheat and steal’ inside the ring, but according to Vickie Guerrero he also took that approach when playing games with his children. On a recent episode of AEW Unrestricted, she revealed that Eddie hated to lose, and wasn’t above cheating during card games against his daughters if it meant he could emerge victorious.
Vickie Guerrero was asked by a listener if there was a story about Eddie which hadn’t been shared yet, to which she divulged that he was a “horrible loser.”
“There’s so many variations but Eddie cheated a lot with me and the girls playing games at home,” Vickie recalled. “If we were playing cards, he always had extra cards to pull out and win at poker or whatever, but he was a cheater. He hated to lose. I’m writing a book, so I have some stories in there sharing Eddie with the public.
“Eddie, he was a horrible loser. He had a bad attitude. If you thought that he would get mad in the ring, he had like a little three-year-old whenever the girls won against something with him. He was a horrible loser. Just something that you really need to understand in my life going through Eddie and living with him was he hated to lose.”
Following up on the revelation that she is writing a book, Vickie went into more detail explaining that she’s hoping to sell the book to a publisher with the aim of releasing it in either August or September.
“In the next three weeks, we’re going to the publishers, and we’re going to try and sell our book,” Vickie revealed. “I’ve been working on it for the last three years, and with COVID, everything just stopped, but we’re starting to pick it up again and things are starting to open in New York.
“So hopefully we get a buyer, then we’ll go to print and then it’ll be released probably, hopefully, by August or September, but I’m really proud of the book. And it’s my side of living with Eddie and going through life as a housewife and then turning into a Superstar, so it’s pretty incredible.”
The former SmackDown General Manager also told of how Eddie was planning on opening a wrestling school before his untimely death.
“He always wanted to open up his own wrestling school right before he passed away,” Vickie revealed. “I think he would have been a great agent. I think that would have been something he would have loved to have done is to mentor a lot of the younger guys, and I can see him being an actor because he was so entertaining.”
