A preliminary report indicates that Eddie Guerrero died from a massive heart attack due to heart disease. Narrowing of the arteries and an enlarged heart caused from his past substance abuse and intense work load.
Do wrestlers have annual medicals? Surely this sort of thing would have been picked up? He had been with the company for 5 years and was clean and sober for 4 of those. So essentially, the WWE had notice on the life of Eddie Guerrero and could have done something about his condition. Heart disease is generally not something that has a sudden onset and if Eddie was told “you will lose your life doing something you love” even he, a man steeped in wrestling history and tradition would have gladly exchanged all of that to be with his family.
I feel that this sorry tale might have had a better outcome, and Eddie might still be alive if this had been picked up.
