Re: Was Eddie Guerrero a legit WWE Champion?
from watching at the time of his first reign he had abit of rey mysterios style (underdog) in his matches which is fine for a few months but after a while gets very boring i do however belive hed finally hit his stride with the main event style and his fued with batista just before he passed
You need to go back and watch more of Eddie's catalog. His in-ring style was dependent on the situation and the story they were trying to tell. Babyface champion Eddie indeed played the underdog role, given he was surrounded by monsters like Lesner and Batista. His feuds with the likes of Angle or JBL were of a completely different ilk, while the matches/rivalries with opponents like Rey or Benoit told an altogether different story.
The man could do it all.
As for being a draw, I think it's important to remember the ever expanding Latin market, be they immigrant lucha fans or Latin Americans, it's one of the few demographics that has been continually rising and becoming a larger and larger part of the WWE audience.
I love professional-wrestling.
