"***This is a completely different re-written post about the upcoming Viva La Raza: Life & Legacy Of Eddie Guerrero 3-disc DVD that i'm writting today 11/7/08***. I recently(on 9/26/08)wrote about WWE not releasing both: the Raw Tribute & the Smackdown Tribute shows here in the US with the upcoming Eddie Guerrero set(due to the fact that Silver Vision ***WWE's UK/Europeon DVD distributer*** announced that that they would be the only ones offering both the RAW & SMackdown Tribute shows with the set when they put up their official listing of what's included on the set). i have been calling & researching what is going on over the past week and here is what is the deal(all confirmed)!. Silver Vision(WWE's UK/Europeon distributer)is offering a special edition VLR 4-disc set: 3-disc VLR + the Raw & SD Eddie guerrero Tribute Shows "both" on a special 4th bonus disc!. Best Buy in Canada is offering a special edition 4-disc set: 3-disc VLR + the Raw Eddie Guerrero Tribute show on a special 4th bonus disc!. Sunrise Records in Canada is offering a special edition 4-disc set: 3-disc VLR + the Smackdown Eddie Guerrero Tribute show on a special 4th bonus disc!. now for those of us that live in the US the next 2 stores i will mention is where you will find the versions with the Raw & Smackdown Eddie Guerrero Tribute shows. ok...for US customers. Best Buy is offering a special edition VLR 7-disc set all inside a exclusive collector's edition VLR Tin...the BB exclusive tin edition contains: the VLR 3-disc, Cheating Death Stealing Life 2004 2-disc original release, WWE No Way Out 2004(full PPV)1-disc original release, and the Raw Eddie Guerrero Tribute show on a special edition disc!. and finally. FYE will be selling a special edition 4-disc set: 3-disc VLR + the Smackdown Eddie Guerrero Tribute show on a special 4th bonus disc!. that's it!!!. as you can see WWE wants everybody to buy these sets twice just to get both of the Tribute shows! -_o. this is nothing but greed on their part but it's the only way to get these 2 Tribute show on official Region 1 DVD in DVD quality!. i pre-ordered both Tribute show versions: the 7-disc Raw version through Best Buy & the 4-disc Smackdown Version through FYE(via a $5 pre-order deposit). the FYE Smackdown Tribute version must be purchased via "in-store" only!. when i went there they only had a few left over for pre-order and they look to be a very limited edition set(there is a version there with a sticker on it mentioning that a 4th disc containing the Smackdown Tribute show is present & there is also a version without a sticker...that would be your 3-disc version)!. so if you want to guarantee yourself that FYE Smackdown Tribute 4-disc edition i suggest you get down there and make a $5 pre-order deposit and tell the clerk to put a sticker with your name on it and tell them to put it away in the back for you(like i did...the clerk wrapped it for me with tape & put it away)!. both are limited editions so if you want them take the necessary action to acquire them!. they won't last long!. plus if you don't get them now you'll almost guaranteed end up having to deal with all the eBay scalpers that love to take advantage...driving up the demand & price for them!. so..."
The Legend Of Eddie Guerrero

"I have to admit, this new WWE set is probably the best they've put out this year! Very little I could find wrong with it. Here, we get to hear from Dean Malenko, Jim Ross, "Nature Boy" Ric Flair (prior to his leaving WWE), Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio, Chavo Guerrero and his father Chavo, Sr., The Hardyz, John Cena, Edge, JBL, Jerry Lawler, Michael Cole and of course Eddie's widow Vickie Guerrero.

Here are the matches and my view of them. I will say that they rank from okay to excellent! In my opinion, there isn't one sucky match on this release:

Disc 1

Vs. 2 Cold Scorpio (ECW World TV Title Match) - In his first bout in the U.S., Eddie takes on the very underrated 2 Cold Scorpio in a back and forth match that sees Eddie win his first major title in America after Scorpio makes the mistake of letting Eddie up when he has him beat!

Vs. Dean Malenko (ECW World TV Title Match) - The first of many encounters in both ECW and WCW between these two. This one goes to a time limit draw after several near falls near the end!

Vs. Shinjiro Otani (Starrcade '95) - This was part of the WCW Vs. New Japan Best of Seven series for the World Cup. This featured New Japan stars such as Tenzan, Mr. Saito, Jushin "Thunder" Liger, Masa Chono and Kensuki Sasaki (Power Warrior) and WCW stars such as Johnny B. Badd, Chris Benoit, Lex Luger, Sting, "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Guerrero.

Of all the bouts, this one was probably the best of the them. I felt that way even back then in 1995 and I still feel that way now. An incredible bout!

Vs. "Nature Boy" Ric Flair w/Ms. Elizabeth and Woman (Nancy Benoit)(WCW U.S. Title Match) - This was from WCW Hog Wild in 1996 and saw Eddie take on the legendary Ric Flair for the U.S. belt. While he would fall to Flair here, Guerrero would later win this very title in a tournament beating Diamond Dallas Page in the finals.

Back to this match, a very good matchup that saw Guerrero's own finisher (The Frog Splash) actually cost him the match as he hurt his leg on impact! Flair took advantage with his figure four with an assist from the ropes and Woman to get the win!

Vs. Chris Jericho (WCW U.S. Title Match) - This was at SuperBrawl '97 and was actually a very good bout but the crowd was very DEAD in this match. Sad because these two were putting on a wrestling clinic but work rate and such wasn't as appreciated in that era as it is now. Guerrero retained by the way.

Vs. Rey Mysterio (WCW Cruiserweight Title Match) - This was on WCW Nitro and was a rematch from their legendary Halloween Havoc '97 bout! This one wasn't as good but I can't recall ever seeing a bad match between Guerrero and Mysterio. Guerrero avenges his loss to Rey and regains the Cruiserweight title.

Vs. Dean Malenko (WCW Cruiserweight Title Match) - This was on the undercard of Sting Vs. Hulk Hogan at Starrcade '97 (ugh!) and quite frankly, this one along with Saturn VS. Benoit, DDP Vs. Curt "Mr. Perfect" Hennig and Zybysco Vs. Eric Bischoff for control of Nitro saves this card from being total buttcrack!

Anyway, back to this match, while nowhere near the quality of their ECW battles or early WCW matches, this one is a good one to open up the card. Guerrero wins after a Frog Splash to Malenko's injured leg!

Vs. Ultimo Dragon - This could've been a classic but the angle of Eddie Vs. Chavo took away from this bout. I will say this one was okay.

Vs. Juventud Guerrera - A short but fast paced bout during Juvi's hot streak in WCW that saw him lose very little. Eddie was one of those losses.

Vs. Psychosis - This was a revenge bout after Psychosis turned on Eddie for breaking up the Latino World Order (LWO). In reality, the angle was dropped because Eddie had injured himself in a car wreck. This is actually discussed prior to the match by his widow Vickie.

The match itself wasn't a classic but it was pretty good. Probably excellent considering the shape WCW was in by that point! Eddie wins with his Frog Splash.

Disc 2

Vs. Chris Jericho (WWE European Title Match) - This took place a few days after WrestleMania 2000. Surprisingly, the commentary hasn't been edited as Chris Jericho's Triple Threat bout with Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit is mentioned! I should also note that Benoit's name comes up in the color commentary of some of the other Eddie matches on this release too. Thumbs up to WWE for that! I am not a fan of the man anymore but I hate history being edited even worse!

Back to the match, Eddie wins with a surprise assist from Chyna who actually accompanied Jericho to this bout! From there, "Latino Heat" begins!

Vs. Matt Hardy - This was a qualifying match in the 2000 edition of The King Of The Ring Tournament. Very good match that sees "Latino Heat" win cleanly despite being a heel at this point!

Vs. Rob Van Damn (WWE Intercontinental Title Match) - Excellent match! This one was only surpassed by their now classic Ladder match later that year. As for this one, it ends when Eddie hits his Frog Splash after a neckbreaker onto the championship belt!

Vs. Jeff Hardy (WWE Intercontinental Title Match) - A good match between Jeff and Eddie that saw a lot of high impact on both men! Eddie wins this match.

Vs. Edge (No DQ Match) - This was the end of a series between Edge and Guerrero. This not only shows the heart of Guerrero but shows why Edge is the star he is now! Very physical encounter and while weapons are used, they are used sparringly. Ends when Edge gets his "Edgecution" (super DDT) from the top of a ladder! Fans cheer both men when the match is over. I've never seen their Unforgiven 2002 match but I have seen their SummerSlam 2002 and I have to say this one defintely beats their SS match!

Vs. Team Angle (WWE Tag Team Title Match) - By this time, Los Guerreros had been formed with Eddie and Chavo as they looked to regain their tag belts from Team Angle's Shelton Benjammin and Charlie Haas (who would go on to become The World's Greatest Tag Team). Ends when Benjamin trips up Chavo as he attempted a suplex on Haas and holds the feet down to allow Haas to get the win. In classic Los Guerrero fashion though, they steal the belts despite being the losers and ride off in their low-rider! LOL!

Vs. John Cena (Parking Lot Brawl) - If ever a case was to be made that they should turn John Cena back into a heel, then here it is! He was hilarious in his diss rap prior to this bout and, in my view, he was a lot rougher than he is now!

Back to the match, I have to say OUCH! on some of the bumps they took! I won't tell you the ending of this one other than to say Eddie had some b*lls!

Vs. Chavo Guerrero - This was from the Royal Rumble 2004 and while a decent bout, it isn't their best by no means. The excitement picks up after the match though.

Vs. Brock Lesner (WWE World Title Match) - This is from No Way Out 2004 and anyone that even consider themselves a fan MUST see this match! This is what made Eddie go from great performer to legend in my view because Brock (like him or not) was nearly unbeatable at this point! While there is some interference from Goldberg, it actually affected the outcome of this bout very little. The celebration afterwards is what lives in my mind even today!

Also, this disc has some Los Guerreros Vignettes.

Disc 3

Vs. Rey Mysterio (WWE Title Match) - This one was a surprise because I never knew these guys went at it for the WWE title! A very good match between these two and another classic.

Vs. JBL (WWE Title Match) - This is from Judgement Day 2004 and I have to say the last 10 mintues or so of this bout has to be the BLOODIEST I've ever seen! You want to talk bloodbath?! You must see this one! I might be wrong but this one gives both Brock Vs. Undertaker and Cena Vs. JBL competition in terms of bleeding!

Back to the match, it wasn't a wrestling classic but a good old fashioned fight! Even after the match was over, they were still going at it. Its amazing Eddie, with all that blood loss, didn't pass on that night! I really mean that!

Vs. JBL (WWE Title Match) - This one was in a cage and by that point, JBL had taken the title from Guerrero. In this one, we see a spetacular Frog Splash from the top of the cage when Guerrero had the chance to win the match! After that, Eddie still could've won but thanks to Kurt Angle, JBL retained.

Vs. Kurt Angle - This one was part of the WWE Championship series to see who would face then champion John Cena at Judgement Day 2005. I will say that this match was better than their WM 20 encounter in my view! Ends when an argument between Rey Mysterio and Guerrero gives Angle the opening to hit Guerrero with a chair to get the pin.

Vs. Rey Mysterio - This one was in a cage and the angle was that Eddie was obssessed with defeating Rey Mysterio and had been unable to do so in their recent series of matches. Eddie finally gets a win over Rey after a missed splash from Mysterio and a Frog Splash from Eddie! This wasn't as good as their WCW encounters or their Ladder Match at SummerSlam 2005 but, as I said, I never saw a bad match from these two.

Vs. Batista - In their first and only PPV square off, Guerrero gave Batista very good match. Though Dave B. was the face here, most of the cheers were for Guerrero! Ends when Eddie misses his Frog Splash and Batista counters with his spinebuster for the win.

This disc also has a short story on how Chris Jericho first met Eddie and Eddie's final match against Mr. Kennedy. It isn't a great one but it is rather funny! LOL!

Overall, I would highly recommend this release from WWE and for those that are upset that Chris Benoit isn't on here, I say get over it on this one. I never thought I'd say that but his absence on this release taints it a little but not enough to bring it down though I do find it funny that they don't have Chris but many of their recent releases (especially Austin's and this one) has Nancy in them? I think her family would have a case for royalties possibly.

Back to this release, I would recommend getting this along with "Cheating Death, Stealing Life" as that one still does have Benoit on it and has matches that are not on this release save his title win over Brock Lesner.

Viva La Raza Eddie! Rest In Peace!"
