The tribute video WWE made after Eddie Guerrero's death has only ever been aired once

WWE only aired what fans believe to be the best tribute video to iconic wrestler Eddie Guerrero once.

On November 13 2005, Guerrero died as a result of acute heart failure after being found unconscious in a Minneapolis hotel room. He was just 38-years-old.

Affectionately referred to as 'Latino Heat' by the WWE Universe, Guerrero is perhaps one of the greatest to ever step foot inside the squared circle.

His athletic ability, alongside charisma oozing from each shoulder shake, made him a must-see performer throughout his whole WWE career.

The following week's episodes of 'Monday Night Raw' and 'Friday Night SmackDown!' were dedicated to Guerrero, with storylines abandoned for the week and wrestlers sporting 'EG' armbands.

Several of his friends in the business wrestled in first-time-ever matches, including Rey Mysterio and Shaw Michaels. At the start of the show, a tribute video to Guerrero with Johnny Cash's 'Hurt' as the backing music played.

Prior to 'Friday Night SmackDown!' four days later, the same tribute video aired with a different song. Check it out for yourself below.

Set to Three Doors Down's 'Here Without You', it documented Guerrero's life in and outside of the ring.

From his marriage to wife Vickie to winning the WWE Championship from Brock Lesnar, it perfectly encapsulated what made Guerrero so endearing to millions across the globe.

Interestingly, WWE only ever showed the video in this format once. The song has been replaced on the WWE Network so if you ever want to watch it in all its glory, you need to hunt it down online.

Earlier this year, Mysterio paid tribute to Guerrero with his incredible entrance before wrestling his son, Dominik, at WrestleMania 39.

Mysterio entered the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California in the back of a lowrider driven by rapper Snoop Dogg. Does it get much cooler than that?

With Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's smash hit 'Nuthin' but a ‘G’ Thang' playing, Guerrero's iconic 'Viva La Raza' theme hit as Mysterio came from behind the curtain.

The 48-year-old explained: "To be able to ride with Snoop was legendary. 'Nuthin' But A G Thang', baby is something that I heard when I was a kid growing up, everybody heard that song.

"And then to mix it up into Viva La Raza, the representation of the representor, the fullest representor of Hispanics, Eddie Guerrero. It’s incredible I walked into that match very emotional. A lot of my work tonight was in honour of Eddie Guerrero."
