And In the Main Event...Guerrero vs. El Diablo!
I loved professional wrestling when I was a kid. It was like a live-action Masters of the Universe. Since then, my interest has gradually waned to zilch, due to the uneven quality of the product, but Eddie Guerrero was one of those wrestlers that usually managed to entertain me. There's just something cool about Mexican wrestlers, even if they don't wear crazy dragon masks.
Vargas pointed out to me that Guerrero died this past Tuesday. I don't have any idea what the guy was actually like, but this is what I imagined happening to the persona he portrayed.
The dude could wrestle:
And he had ring charisma:

Man, I first heard that Eddie Guerrero died on Monday. I was shocked. Just out of the blue this guy who makes me love to watch wrestling again died.
I do hope that this strip does Eddie justice, and I KNOW that he went to "the other place", but it wouldn't be right if he started wailing on poor John, Paul, JC, or any of the others up there :)
Anyway, Viva La Raza!
P.S. Now I'm really tempted to buy Raw vs Smackdown 2006 just 'cause he's in it.
