Say what? Wrestling is an interesting place as you never know where you are going to find a star. Back in 2005, Eddie Guerrero passed away due to heart issues, leaving his family in a pretty bad situation in a hurry. However, WWE brought his widow Vickie Guerrero into the company and gave her a job as an on screen authority figure. As it turns out, she was actually rather good at the job and stuck around for several years. Now she has moved on to the world of podcasting and got a heck of an endorsement on one of her earlier episode.
Michelle McCool was a guest on a recent episode of Vickie’s Excuse Me podcast. During the show, McCool played a message from her husband, and former on-screen foil to Vickie, the Undertaker. The message, with transcription courtesy of Sportskeeda.com, said “Tell Vickie I said hello. I think you’re doing her podcast today, right? That should be good. She’s going to be really good at podcasts. I can’t wait to hear how that goes, so good luck with that. Make sure you put me over a lot, okay?”
This is a scary situation. Check out Undertaker going after Vickie:
Undertaker and Vickie had an extended rivalry during their time together on SmackDown. Vickie was married to Edge and helped him win several World Heavyweight Championships, including trading the title with Undertaker multiple times in 2008. The highlight of their feud came at WrestleMania 24 when Undertaker defeated Edge to win the title in the main event of the show. At one point, Undertaker even Tombstoned Vickie, putting her in a wheelchair for several months.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you do not see happen very often but it is very interesting to see when it does take place. Undertaker is one of the last wrestlers to keep kayfabe almost all of the time, making it feel all the stranger when he does something like this. At the same time, Vickie is someone who is looked back on rather fondly. She was around WWE for a long time but managed to turn into quite the performer who absolutely nailed her character the whole way. It’s nice to see her having some success after her career is over and getting to still be connected to wrestling.
