Vickie and Chavo Remember Eddie Guerrero
Eight years ago today Eddie Guerrero passed away from heart failure in a Minneapolis, Minnesota, hotel room. Although he’d reportedly gotten over a well publicized pain killer addiction, his heart was already weakened, and also enlarged from years of steroid abuse.
“I love you Eddie! Always and Forever!” wrote his widow Vickie on Twitter. Chavo who was the person who discovered Eddie’s body also posted a Tweet of remembrance:
“Remembering my uncle/brother Eddie today. 8 yrs since his passing. Seems like yesterday. Miss him VERY much! See u soon, hold my spot.”
“Thank u to all the ppl who are remembering Eddie today. He loved u all like family. Even the ones he wanted to punch..ya, just like Fam! :)”
Following Eddie’s death WWE instigated the Wellness Policy, though there are still some valid criticisms about its legitimacy, such as a likely Human Growth Hormone loophole.

Shelton Benjamin Hoping For WWE Return?
The question of whether Shelton Benjamin is going to return to WWE has resurfaced again, though his answer didn’t really shed much light:
“I keep getting asked when am I going back to WWE. My answer: sooner or never, time will tell.”
Benjamin is 38 years old and WWE’s recent focus on new talent would appear to work against him, but with the successful return of Goldust who knows?
The former IC, US and Tag Team Champion, has most recently been working with ROH.
