World Wrestling Entertainment wrestler Eddie Guerrero was found dead in his hotel room in Minneapolis, the organization said Sunday.
Guerrero, 38, was found at the Marriott City Center in downtown Minneapolis. He was in town for Sunday night’s “WWE Supershow” TV taping at Target Center.
Police were called to the hotel just after 7:30 a.m. and attempts were made to revive the wrestler, Minneapolis Police Department spokesperson Ron Reier said.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner was at the hotel. Additional information on Guerrero’s death was not immediately available.
If you ever wanted to see Eddie wrestle at his best try to find tapes of the matches he had with Dean Malenko back in their ECW days.
Eddie had battled drug and alcohol addiction before in his life. In recent years he had “turned his life over to the Lord” as they say. I hope to God that his death wasn’t drug-related.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Eddie Guerrero. He will be missed.
