Vickie Guerrero On Survivor Series Moments, Eddie, Managing, More
Posted By: Caylon Knox on Nov 20, 2013
WWE Friday Night SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero recently spoke with DirecTV to promote the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
Do you have any favorite Survivor Series moments?
I always enjoyed working with Edge and, of course, my husband Eddie. To see Eddie win was always something special to me. He obviously had a lot of opponents but one year at Survivor Series he cheated to win against Kurt Angle. This was during the “Lie, Cheat, Steal” days. That always stuck out in my mind because he was so entertaining in the way he would manipulate his opponents, baiting them into a trap.
Do you have any other great Eddie memories?
Gosh, there’s so many. I think my favorite moments were when he worked with Chyna. When he vied for her affection and they “fell in love” and went to prom. I just loved it! He treated me like that in real life, so I related. He was always so fascinating to watch by just being who he was. He really believed in what he did and I think that showed in his work in the ring. His work was just genuine. He cared about it. He had a lot of respect for the fans and gave 100% to make the match everything they wanted it to be when they walked into that arena. They knew Eddie was going to give them his whole heart. It meant a lot to him. I respected him for that.
Who has been your favorite Superstar to manage and would you do it again?
I would love to manage Dolph Ziggler again. We have a great chemistry. AJ got in our way, but we had a lot of fun out there. Dolph is really entertaining and one of my favorites. And then Edge I will always respect. He showed me psychology, how to work in the ring, helped with my promos, and how to work with the cameras. He took me under his wing and made me feel like I was his partner. He really built my confidence and made me believe that whatever I did out there would be great. He really believed in me and I think that’s why we got to stay together for so long.
Who do you see as the best up and comers at the moment?
The Wyatt Family. They have really worked hard to get where they are. Maybe it’s just because they are creepy, but their characters are really amazing to me. It’s something we have not had in a long time. Also, Tamina (Snuka) has really proven herself as AJ’s bodyguard. Her matches are getting stronger and I see her becoming the Diva’s Champion one day. I’d hate to be splashed by her. I want to keep her as my friend.
How did “Excuse Me!” come about?
One night I had this long promo to do and in the middle of it I forgot my lines. I had a deer in headlights look so the crowd got loud because they knew there was something wrong. I just kind of needed to regroup so I said “excuse me” to them to buy some time. But the more I said it, probably two or three more times, the crowd just went insane. Afterwards, I kind of thought “OK that’s done and over with.” But we decided to try it again the next night and now it’s something the crowd expects from me. There were a few times that I didn’t say it and people let me know on Twitter that they were disappointed. It was their one night a year they got to see a WWE show and to see me and not hear me say it, it was disappointing to them. Now I always try to incorporate it into a show to help make it that one special night for a fan. The more they hate me, the more I get a kick out of it. It makes me feel good.
