MUMBAI: One of World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) top performers ,Eddie Guerrero, passed away a few days ago at the age of 38. Media reports indicate that he died as a result of heart failure.

IGuerrero is survived by his wife, Vickie, and his three daughters. He was staple on WWE SmackDown!. Last year he became the first Mexican-American to become a WWE Champion.

Born into a wrestling family from El Paso, Guerrero won over fans with his winning smile even as he performed as a heel who worked under the famous motto of lie, cheat and steal.

 

In a report on www.wwe.com, his wife Vickie, blamed the stress of the job which involves a lot of travelling from one city to another for the heart attack. "It was heart failure. It was from his past -- the drinking and the drug abuse. They found signs of heart disease. The Hennepin County medical examiner said that the blood vessels were very worn and narrow, and that just showed all the abuse from the scheduling of work and his past. And Eddie just worked out like crazy all the time. It made his heart grow bigger and work harder and the vessels were getting smaller, and that is what caused the heart failure. He went into a deep sleep."

Reports further indicate that in a recent pay per view Judgement Day Guerrero bladed himself to such an extent during his match that he lost an unhealthy amount of blood. After the cameras had stopped rolling he collapsed in the ring and was rushed to a downtown Los Angeles hospital. He had gone into shock from the sheer amount of blood loss. It appears that he bladed himself as he realised that his match might turn out to be awful.

His peers paid tributes to him. Fellow wrestler, Chris Jericho, recalled the time in the 1990s when he and Eddie felt underutilised, underpushed, an almost non-existant tag team in the now defunct WCW. "But there was a chemistry there that existed becuase we had mutual respect for each other and we both loved what we were doing."

In India, viewers can catch WWE action on Ten Sports.
