Eddie Guerrero is one of the most well-respected and beloved superstars in the history of WWE. Before he even joined WWE though, he was one of the hardest working wrestlers in the business.
Earlier this week, one of Eddie's closest friends while he was alive, Rey Mysterio, shared a post on Instagram of himself, Eddie, and CM Punk wrestling during an IWA Mid-South match in 2002.
Mysterio said reflected on how he never would have imagined the success each one of them had in wrestling following this meeting.
He said in the caption of the post: "Punk-Vs-Eddie-Vs-Rey What a throwback pic! Never would of imagined how our destinies would turn out after this night! #RIP🖤#MissYouEddie #MissYaPunk"
Punk saw the post and decided to leave a fantastic story in the comments about the match and what it meant to him to wrestle with two legends of WCW and WWE.
- WWE teases five big WrestleMania 36 matches
- Bryan and Sheamus missed SD Live due to injuries
- WWE planned Banks & Bayley title loss for some time
He said: "People should know how good Eddie really was. He was in a rough spot. Recently fired, home front was turbulent. He came to this show and looked tired.
"Said to me “I hate three ways. If it’s okay with you, can you and Rey put something together and just call it to me?” I wasn’t sure that was possible. He didn’t miss a beat.
"And you Rey, so open and giving to a little punk Indy kid. You laid out a masterpiece and I wasn’t sure I could keep up. One of the early times I remember being in the ring and thinking to myself, “this is f*****g MAGIC!” A pleasure. An honor.
"I miss Eddie, truly fortunate to have worked him as many times as I did. I feel the same about you Rey! Legends, who treated me like an equal, and I’ve never forgotten it. Viva la raza!"
This is the second time recently which Punk has talked about wrestling, as he also spoke about Kofi Kingston around WrestleMania. Some fans now believe he could start to talk about wrestling more on a regular basis.
However, Punk was quick to extinguish those hopes on Twitter:
"So more lying snakes and unethical fugazis can sue me for telling the truth? Hard pass. 🙅🏽♀️"
We're unlikely to see Punk in the WWE again anytime soon, but at least there's a little bit of hope he might talk about his wrestling past again following these last few weeks.News Now - Sport News
