"Mamacita" Dead at 38
It is with great sadness and grief that I announce the passing of WWE champion Eddie Guerrero. I don't mean to make light of a terrible tragedy--R.I.P. Owen Hart--but the article reads more like it's part of the WWE storyline (fake) than as an obituary to the fallen star (real).
"Eddie was in Minneapolis to take part in the main event of the WWE’s Smackdown television show, where he was due to wrestle champion Batista and Randy Orton in a match for the world title.
With Batista recently suffering an injury, many expected Eddie to win the gold and add to an illustrious career that has made him one of the best wrestlers of his generation."
"After finding religion and staying clean, Eddie was enjoying a remarkable run as a headline star in the WWE – holding the world championship for four months after beating Brock Lesnar in February 2004."
This seems to me to be analogous to a eulogy being written about actor, Alan Thicke, where they commend the great fatherly achievements of his character, Jason Seaver on Growing Pains. I know that post-modernism is increasingly blurring the lines between fiction and non-fiction, but I believe it would be disrespectful for the WWE to have the funeral live in the ring on Monday Night Raw.
