Eddie’s influence in the world of wrestling was not just restricted to North America, as he made a huge impact on the world over. This is evident from the fact that current member of The IIconics, Peyton Royce, claims that Eddie is the one who inspired her to get in the world of wrestling.

She’s revealed the following:

"It never crossed my mind that I can do that. I hate that it comes back into my head, but it was the day Eddie Guerrero died. That was it for me. I used to pray at night and tell him that I was going to do this for you because you gave me all these memories and all these feelings and I just wanted to give back to others the way you gave to me. He was so charismatic. He would make me feel happy. He would make me laugh. He was so amazing to watch in the ring. He was so athletic and entertaining. I wanted to be able to speak Spanish, actually, I am taking Spanish now. I wanted to take Spanish in school because I wanted to talk like him, he was a big inspiration for my life."

During a big WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match at WrestleMania 35, the tights Peyton Royce wore were inspired by Eddie Guerrero and his tag line 'Latino Heat'.

#5 John Cena


John Cena has been regarded as one of the biggest WWE Superstars of all time, and not only has he proved his worth in the ring but also wherever else he’s been.

While Cena is away from the world of wrestling today, he continues to hype up wrestling and the company whenever he gets a chance. Continuing that, Cena has also spoken highly of Eddie whenever he has gotten the chance to do so.

Eddie was one of the first men who helped Cena get big in WWE, and their Latino Parking Lot Fight is one to remember forever.

After one of his matches, Cena took off his Eddie inspired shirt and turned it around which had Eddie Guerrero’s name on it. He then laid it down in the center of the ring and put his WWE Championship belt on top of it to signify that Eddie will forever remain a champion for WWE.
