Hailed by many fans as one of the most memorable authority figures to ever grace television, Vickie Guerrero has been involved in some of WWE’s most high profiled storylines during her WWE tenure.

In an interview with Memorabilia Guy’s Aaron Evans, Vickie shares her thoughts on the rise of WWE’s Women’s division, coping with Eddie Guerrero’s early death and which current Superstars she would like to work with.

The rise of WWE’s Women’s division: “The females are taking the women’s division so much higher than it was ten years ago. I am so proud of them. A lot of them are so talented; they can do promos, they can wrestle, they are beautiful and they are setting this new elite status for the women’s division. I often get my DVR and fast-forward to the girl’s stuff. I remember seeing some of these girls at the school in Orlando when they first walked in and now they are main-eventing. When I was there, a lot of women fought for equality and to be on the same level as men. They wanted to be respected and looked upon as role models but it wasn’t a very popular view back then. They used to be publicized for the great bodies they had and the long hair. The women wanted to be valued and today they are. Stephanie McMahon had a lot to do with that. She pushed the women’s division and gave them more time on TV.”

Coping with Eddie Guerrero’s death: “When he passed away at 36 – you never expect your spouse to pass away so young and the girls were so young. You never expect your family to be torn apart that way. When God takes that person away from you it’s a hard reality to face. By the strength of God and my faith I was able to keep the girls going and raise them just the way Eddie would have wanted me to. I wanted to keep our values and traditions alive. We always talk about Eddie, not a conversation goes by where we don’t mention him and he was such an important part of our lives. I am human too, some days are good, some are bad and it hurts not having him around anymore. You don’t realize the strength you have until you have to go through it.”

Who she would like to work with the most: “I look at Enzo and Cass, I love them so much, I laugh every time they come out. They have great energy and I’d love to work with them. Also the girls like Alexa Bliss, Charlotte and Bayley. I would love to be part of their storylines as a general manager, I’d take away the belt and give it to someone else. I mean that was my job, I was supposed to piss people off.”

Vickie also discusses some of her favorite storylines, the WWE’s Universe connection to Eddie and the itch for one more run with the WWE.

    I’m sorry but she’s really not needed at all. I’m kinda loving how the authority figures are babyfaces and mediate a fair show. Except for Stephanie selfish ass of course.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      she’s not completely needed but she was entertaining.

    • Geek God

      I always love at least ONE heel authority figure at any given time, and I’m still waiting for a Karen Jarret type of women in the WWE (manager of the women’s division specifically), Eve, Summer Rae, Vickie, even Stephanie could all be good choices for that kind of role

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Haha Vickie would have loved Charlotte. When she said “I’d take the title off of someone and give it to someone else.” I’d laugh cry and probably die, if she did that to say, idk Naomi? And give Charlotte the SD women’s title. LMAO I miss Queen Vickie.

  • She could have a good storyline, antagonizing Sasha, claiming she is tarnishing Eddie’s name, or maybe they could join alliances, that would make Sasha a mega heel.

    • wwepassion

      Rather Vickie work with someone who actually needs it, she didn’t name drop her so maybe she isn’t a fan.

    • Geek God

      That would be so f****** good, the person below said it right though, someone new or lacking needs her more though, so she should pair with someone who could use the help and feud with Sasha over Eddie

      I mean, I like Sasha but she’s namedropping him more than his wife or kid did and it made me a little uncomfortable to be honest :D I’ll be all for Vicky putting her in check on that matter.

      • John Finnie

        Sasha is the new Chavo’ I always cringed when he name dropped or did his shimmy shake

  • HOLLA

    Vickie really is golden. She had a wicked charm that people loved to hate. She was willing to day and do ridiculous things, she never took herself too seriously, and she was one of the most over personalities (cheers or boos) to not wrestle.

  • Danny?

    I wish her daughter had stayed in the company cause to see Vickie screwing over the other girls to give her all the opportunities would have made for a great storyline.

  • Kat Love

    Steph had nothing to do with it. Steph was in the company when the women were at an all time low in the company.

    • Mark

      It was Triple H who pushed the women in NXT, and I hate to admit it because I hate him! But his push for the women in NXT and them rising to the occasion made the main people running the main roster take note. And it didn’t feel forced like it kind of feels forced now. The girls on NXT back then truly did overshadow the men’s matches. Sasha VS Bayley at NXT was a fucking classic. Charlotte also slayed those guys with her big matches too.

  • I want Vickie to comeback at least 1 more time. She’s a QUEEN. Queen of heat with no entrance theme. That’s Power https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dc36b1f457bacca6b3e581b76e88d7c9cab23ed3cc9492162d390f6ef92b2d97.gif

  • In the beginning I hate Vickie, she was an excellent heel and really make me dislike her so much, but she was a queen on the mic, as GM and Manager too.

  • What?

    She totally snubbed Sasha Banks…..

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Yeah…Stephanie is responsible for the success of the women…Give me a fucking break. When was Stephanie the past 10 years? Still backstage and still taking spotlight not caring one bit about how ridiculous the divas looked.

    • Mike

      #Facts Stephanie stood by and did nothing it was really HHH. Stephanie really is pathetic in my eyes for not pushing for women more…. and the one woman (Brie Bella) she actually feuded with she didn’t even put her over smh a title least Vince put Rock, Stone cold etc over

  • Summer_Slay #RespectTheDivas

    Queen better return and snatch Sasha .

  • Mike

    Vickie would be perfect to get Bayley truly over!! She’d be able to push Naomi to superstardom too I believe she needs to come back lol I’m tired of Stephanie she’s not entertaining

  • John Finnie

    She probably would have her Bff take the title if she could’ her & Tamina are so close
