Randy Orton Shares Eddie Guerrero Memory, Says Guerrero Made Sure He Was Comfortable In WWE

Randy Orton remembers Eddie Guerrero.

On what would have been Guerrero's 53rd birthday on October 9, Orton took to social media to share a memory of the former WWE Champion. Orton was in WWE in the mid 2000s while Guerrero was around and mentioned how Guerrero was so willing to helping him out. The two never had a long-term program with each other, but did share the ring a handful of times in WWE.

Below is what Orton wrote about Guerrero.

I knew eddie for a couple years. I was so young and knew that I shouldnt approach him but had the unimaginable job of wrestling in the main event on TV, so I had to. There has always been attitudes egos or whatever backstage, that will never change. But when I met eddie I forgot everything that I was supposed to know about the wrestling business. Here was this top talent, that cared enough to give me the time of day. When I thought that a simple word would bother him, or he would tell me to F off, I quickly realized that I was dead wrong and that he gaf. He saw a young newcomer to the biz who was excited to work with him and he took the time to make me feel comfortable.

I take that with me these days, the understanding that the new guys aren’t anything more then exactly how I USED to be. He made me feel welcome. He made me feel important. I will forever miss him, and can say without a doubt that he was one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of boots. RIP #eddieguerrero
