Eddie Guerrero Week: Matt Harrak Remembers Eddie Guerrero

10 years ago today, the great Eddie Guerrero passed away.

I was at WrestleMania 20 in the Garden when Eddie defeated Kurt Angle to retain the WWE Championship in a classic match. And in 2005, I worked for the WWE when Eddie Guerrero passed away.

I met Eddie twice during my time there. I didn’t get to work with him as much as I would have liked but from those brief meetings I knew I had met a special person. Eddie’s death effected everyone in the office, whether they knew him personally, professionally or only from what they’ve seen on TV. It was a rough day, a rough week for everyone and one I will never forget.

Thank you Eddie for making us laugh, yell, cheer and have a ton a fun. You were one of the best and taken from us far too soon.
