Loud Eddie chants again after the video, which was just…great. Vince drops a “Viva La Razza” on us. “Thank you Eddie” chants now from the crowd. Seeing some of the guys so broken up is just proof of how much he meant to them.
John Cena speaks on Eddie. He says you may not like all of them, but they will all be speaking on Eddie’s greatness as a person. N a personal note, when John knew nothing, Eddie did a lot for him as a wrestler and as a father figure. Through all of his skills, Eddie had a lot of heart and taught Cena how to find that in himself. He sends his condolences to the family and all of Eddie’s close friends in the WWE, and that all of the guys love him.
