#5 Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit didn't like each other (at first)
Most wrestling fans are aware of the friendship that Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit had with each other. They both came to WWE at the same time and both held World Titles on the same night at WrestleMania 20. It was a dream come true for real-life best friends.
The thing was that it didn't start that way. According to the documentary, the two met while working together in Japan. Chris Jericho said that they would beat the '$hit out of each other.'
While they were both fantastic performers who worked with each other, Eddie didn't care for Benoit at first. According to Vickie Guerrero, he would call and complain to her on the phone She said:
"Eddie would call me and be like, 'I can't stand this a$$hole. He's such a p#ick."
Vickie believes that the more they worked with each other, the more they respected each other, and this would lead them to becoming the best of friends in the years to come.
