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.

The El Paso, Texas native was inducted into WWE's Hall of Fame the night before Wrestlemania 22 in 2006 and will forever be remembered as one of the most gifted and entertaining performers ever to step inside a ring.

Guerrero gave fans so many wonderful memories in between the ropes but his only WWE Championship win in the main event of No Way Out in 2004 against Brock Lesnar will never be topped.

After winning a battle royal to earn the right to challenge a young Lesnar. Guerrero produced the performance of a lifetime to win the gold in what was a massive upset.

Cow Palace completely erupted when the referee counted the pinfall after Guerrero capitalised on interference from Goldberg and hit his tried and trusted Frog Splash from the top rope.

It was such a special moment that will live long in the memory. RIP Eddie. Viva La Raza.
