A who’s-who of pro wrestlers gathered in Phoenix on Thursday, November 17

A handful of World Wrestling Entertainment superstars, along with a few Total Nonstop Action wrestlers, and even a few wrestlers not currently active gathered here in Phoenix for one day only, to honor their friend, the recently-departed Eddie Guerrero, in a closed funeral service.

The guest list read like an all-star lineup:

From WWE: Chris Benoit, John Layfield, Rey Mysterio, Dean Malenko, Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Linda McMahon, John Laurinaitis, Lita, Edge, Jamie Noble, Shane Helms, Doug Basham, Torrie Wilson, Kevin Dunn, Bruce Prichard, Michael Haynes, and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

TNA was represented by Jackie Gayda, Konnan, Gail Kim, Mike Tenay and Christian.

Inactive stars who showed up included Chris Jericho, Charlie Haas, Mark Jindrak, C.M. Punk, Billy Kidman, Billy Anderson, Tim Prichard, Tommy Drake and Sting.

The eulogy was delivered by WWE Legend “Superstar” Billy Graham, and speakers included the aformentioned Malenko, Jericho, Benoit, Layfield and Vince, as well as Eddie’s brothers Chavo Sr., Mando and Hector, as well as Eddie’s nephew Chavo Guerrero Jr.

In the meantime, fans and friends of Eddie can send email to WWE that will be compiled into a book and delivered to Eddie’s wife Vickie. Eddie had just recently moved to Phoenix from El Paso, and he enjoyed life in the Valley of the Sun. Now I am very positive he will enjoy life in the Great Reward.

Resto in paz y viva la raza, Eduardo.

    Eddie was a doper plain and simple. Anybody who ‘bulked’ up as fast as he did was a steroid doin freak; nevermind the coke and booze.Thanks, for being a fine example to kids everywhere; and that goes for the rest of you “superstars.”

    Quiet. Eddie was clean the last four years of his life. It was just too little, too late.

    The Lord is good and his love is everlasting. He gets my highest praise. Thank you for the entertainment and laughs that Eddie crafted and produced via his love of professional wrestling. God Bless the Guerrero Family and comfort them during this moment of Eddie’s Homegoing.

    We are so sad about Eddie’s passing, and alittle confused, he changed his whole life around for the good, and as far as being a superstar he was the “BEST” there will never be another one like Eddie, he will be missed, our thoughts and prayers go out to his Family.
