Vickie Guerrero had many memorable moments in WWE, especially as the Smackdown General Manager, where she would become one of the most hated heels on the show. She was also involved in an angle in the feud between her husband Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio.
Vickie recently spoke with ‘Prime Time With Sean Mooney, where she revealed how intense things became during the 2005 SummerSlam storyline between Guerrero and Rey Mysterio, where Rey and Eddie fought over custody of Rey’s real-life son Dominick.
“Well, the Rey Mysterio child custody storyline that he and Eddie were doing, they never thought it was gonna get that big. You know, and after it started progressing about four or five months, Rey and Eddie were really getting into it and they were having all these ideas and Vince had asked them, ‘What if we bring your families into the storyline and this… to just take it to another level’ where Rey’s wife is caught in the middle and Vickie’s questioning Angie – ‘When did y’all sleep together’ and it would just cause a lot of conflict with different angles of the storyline, and we loved it, and we were scared for the girls going in front of a crowd but, Angie, Dominic, my girls,”
“I think we’re just naturals because we’ve been around it so long. Yeah you know, we lived our lives through the camera to watch our husbands and that one day – it was this one SmackDown that we went and Vince talked to the girls and he got on his knees and he’s like, ‘Girls, you know your Mom and Dad are gonna be here with you. There’s nothing to be scared of’ and he goes, ‘If you wanna cry on cue, that is just awesome’ and goes, ‘I would love that’ and Eddie’s like, ‘Well that’s a little too much to ask from the girls’ and we went through the whole scene and that night,”
“Eddie gave the [word] to the girls [about] when to start getting scared and kind of overreacting and darn it, the girls cried and I was like, ‘Oh my God they cried’ and they weren’t nervous. All during the day, they were in catering. The girls loved the women’s locker room. They knew their way around the backstage and they knew everybody, and when it was time for us to go out, I think they were more calm than I was. Especially my oldest one Shaul. She loves the crowd and she’s, ‘Lets do this again’.
Dominick is currently training under Lance Storm and he might be following his father’s footsteps and become a professional wrestler.
