Randy Orton Pays Homage To Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho Comments

The late Eddie Guerrero would have celebrated his 53rd birthday on Friday. While paying homage to the legacy of Guerrero, Randy Orton posted a heartfelt message on Instagram.

Orton explained why it was always easy to approach Guerrero, who went out of his way to make youngsters like himself “feel comfortable” in a locker room full of established veterans.

“He [Eddie] saw a young newcomer to the biz who was excited to work with him and he took the time to make me feel comfortable. I take that with me these days, the understanding that the new guys aren’t anything more then exactly how I USED to be.

“He made me feel welcome. He made me feel important. I will forever miss him, and can say without a doubt that he was one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of boots. RIP #eddieguerrero”.

Chris Jericho responded to the post and joked that Orton was a rather difficult youngster to deal with backstage.

“[Dealing with today’s young guys] won’t be as difficult as you were back then dude!,” wrote Jericho.

In another post, Jericho wrote, “We ALL gaf [gave a f–k] about u man. But you didn’t make it easy.”

As of this writing, Orton has yet to respond to Jericho.

I knew eddie for a couple years. I was so young and knew that I shouldnt approach him but had the unimaginable job of wrestling in the main event on TV, so I had to. There has always been attitudes egos or whatever backstage, that will never change. But when I met eddie I forgot everything that I was supposed to know about the wrestling business. Here was this top talent, that cared enough to give me the time of day. When I thought that a simple word would bother him, or he would tell me to F off, I quickly realized that I was dead wrong and that he gaf. He saw a young newcomer to the biz who was excited to work with him and he took the time to make me feel comfortable. I take that with me these days, the understanding that the new guys aren’t anything more then exactly how I USED to be. He made me feel welcome. He made me feel important. I will forever miss him, and can say without a doubt that he was one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of boots. RIP #eddieguerrero
