Rodriguez mentioned that there can never be another Mysterio or Eddie as they are legends of the game, and no one can replace them.

There will never be another Eddie Guerrero and there will never be another Rey Mysterio. They made Latinos proud.

Eddie and Rey had one of the most intense rivalries and the long feud that even included Rey’s son Dominik Mysterio once, one of the most personal and compelling storylines of all time. They also tag team partners for a while, which became very popular. They are both former WWE Champions.

“We Were like brothers”- Rey Mysterio opens about his close relationship with late Eddie Guerrero

Even if there were some intense rivalries between Eddie and Rey, in a recent interview with Sony Sports India (h/t Sportskeeda), Mysterio opened about his close relationship with late Eddie and mentioned that he was like a brother to him. 

“We were like brothers,” said Mysterio. “Funny story, when I was a fan, I would go and watch my uncle wrestle in Tijuana and that’s where I got to see Eddie wrestle for the first time. I was still a fan, I’d have been about 13 years old. Being able to see Eddie, never did I think that one day we would be as close as we became and that I would be able to share the ring with Eddie. Very inspirational. In the ring, I learned so much from him. Outside of the ring, the connection that we had was very special. Very very special. It was so special that when Eddie passed, the fans would see Eddie through me. Speechless. No words for that.”

Considered to be one of the greatest in-ring performers of all time, Guerrero was loved by everyone. It has been 16 years since Eddie Guerrero passed away. On the 13th of November, 2005, the legendary wrestler was found unconscious in his hotel room. It was later announced that he had passed away due to acute heart failure from atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. He was just 38.
