Vickie Guerrero Comments on Eddie Tribute at WrestleMania

Many fans noticed Vickie Guerrero‘s tribute to her late husband, Eddie at WrestleMania 26, from the flames on her tights to her salute from the top turnbuckle. In a rare out of character moment for the Official SmackDown Consultant, posted an article about Vickie’s tribute. Excerpt below:

From the top rope Vickie put her hand to her heart, kissed it and looked to the sky – a poignant moment honoring her late husband.

“I definitely wanted to do something for Eddie,” she explained. “I started thinking about it during training, when I was learning to get on the ropes. The really great thing is the same ring I was training in in El Paso, Texas, is the same ring Eddie grew up with in his backyard.”

It was definitely a sweet moment that touched many. Who’d have thought that Eddie’s widow would carry on the legacy at a WrestleMania? Go Vickie!

    That was a very sweet moment. Probably the best thing to come out of that match. I am sure Eddie would have been proud of her for even attemtping to do something like that. I commend her for that. Not most woman with her age/shape would even want to try doing that kind of move. Kudos to her (:

    Eddie, we still miss you. I almost teared up reading this. That was sweet of her.

    Paparazzi8o8: I agree with you. Before that, the knowledge of her being Eddie’s wife was completely on the back seat. But when she did that, it’s like that back seat persona suddenly grabbed the wheel and shook things up a little bit–in a good way of course. It was very very heart warming.
