Ten years ago, the great Eddie Guerrero was taken away from us far too soon. Rather than writing up a memorial post, I wanted to focus on a particular party of his career that’s rarely discussed. That said, let’s go back to 1993 (where Eddie’s career really started taking off), when he turned on his tag partner El Hijo del Santo (the son of the legendary Mexican folk hero, El Santo) and allied with Art Barr, Konnan and Louie Spicolli (under the name, Madonna’s Boyfriend) to form a full-on heel stable, Los Gringos Locos.
