A wrestler was discovered dead in his Minneapolis hotel room on Sunday (13NOV05), just hours before a scheduled performance in a World Wrestling Entertainment show. He was 38.
Eduardo Gory Guerrero, best known for participating in WWE SMACKDOWN!, was found by his nephew and hotel security after failing to respond to a wake-up call.
Police are investigating the mysterious demise but, as yet, do not suspect foul play.
WWE chairman Vince Mcmahon paid tribute to the heavyweight saying, "This is a huge loss.
"Eddie was a wonderful, fun-loving human being. Eddie was a consummate performer."
