15 Years Ago Today, The Legendary Eddie Guerrero Wrestled His Last Ever Match In WWE

15 Years Ago Today, The Legendary Eddie Guerrero Wrestled His Last Ever Match In WWE

15 years ago today, Eddie Guerrero's final ever WWE match was aired.

The late legend faced Mr Kennedy in a qualifying match to determine who would join Smackdown's team for Survivor Series and it was 'Latino Heat' who emerged as the winner in trademark fashion.

Guerrero lied, cheated and stole his way to victory courtesy of his usual steel chair antics as he deceived referee Charles Robinson into thinking that he had been struck in the head - leading to the official ringing the ball and disqualifying Kennedy.

This was to be the last time fans saw Guerrero produce magic in side the squared circle as aged just 38, Guerrero passed away just days later on November 13.

His nephew Chavo found him unconscious in his hotel room and the cause of death was later put down as acute heart failure.
