Vickie Guerrero was interviewed by DirecTV this week to promote Sunday’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view. Here are some highlights of what she said about:
In your opinion, what makes Survivor Series so special?
“Survivor Series has always kind of been the kick-off to WrestleMania so this is where everything is on the line. It’s important because it brings out the best in all the Superstars and Divas. They really put their heart and dedication into their matches to prove themselves and start making those roads to WrestleMania.”
Do you have any favorite Survivor Series moments?
“I always enjoyed working with Edge and, of course, my husband Eddie. To see Eddie win was always something special to me. He obviously had a lot of opponents but one year at Survivor Series he cheated to win against Kurt Angle. This was during the “Lie, Cheat, Steal” days. That always stuck out in my mind because he was so entertaining in the way he would manipulate his opponents, baiting them into a trap.”
Do you have any other great Eddie memories?
“Gosh, there’s so many. I think my favorite moments were when he worked with Chyna. When he vied for her affection and they “fell in love” and went to prom. I just loved it! He treated me like that in real life, so I related. He was always so fascinating to watch by just being who he was. He really believed in what he did and I think that showed in his work in the ring. His work was just genuine. He cared about it. He had a lot of respect for the fans and gave 100% to make the match everything they wanted it to be when they walked into that arena. They knew Eddie was going to give them his whole heart. It meant a lot to him. I respected him for that.”
During your time in the WWE you’ve been a ringside manager, a girlfriend, RAW general manager, SmackDown general manager, and general cougar-in-charge. Out of all the things you’ve done in WWE, what has your favorite role been?
“General Manager. You get to manipulate the whole roster. That’s a high for me. I may not be on the level of the McMahons or The Authority but to work with them side-by-side, I’m honored. Of course, being the older woman and having these young guys to work with, that’s something that’s always fun. I know the fans enjoy it too because they hate me more when I have that power.”
