Funeral service for Eddie Guerrero will be held this Wednesday at 1:30PM, while most of the WWE Superstars will be in Europe for a loaded tour. Not all WWE Superstars went on the European tour which starts tomorrow in Italy, and the show, although will go on as scheduled, will not have all the advertised Superstars. They will mix in some RAW guys on the SmackDown! shows to equal the star power for the shows. Many are staying for the funeral and then they leave for the rest of the tour. Dean Malenko and Chris Benoit – two of Eddie’s closest friends – flew with the body from Minneapolis. Superstar Billy Graham, who is a close friend of Guerrero as well and lives nearby in Phoenix, will be conducting the funeral service along with a friend at Billy Graham’s church.
Molly Holly posted the following on Eddie Guerrero: I will miss Eddie very much. My favorite professional moment of his was his match with Rey Mysterio at the 1997 Halloween Havoc. A personal memory I will never forget, is one time on a tour bus overseas, he shared some Bible verses with me and we had a good discussion about life. I am so thankful I was able to know Eddie personally, and am especially thankful I got to give him a hug the night before he passed away. Nora Greenwald
