20. Eddie Guerrero's Name Was Eddy

One of the most common errors made amongst writers for wrestling is also one of the simplest to correct. Eduardo Gory Guerrero is abbreviated to Eddy, not Eddie.

The clue is noticing that his close friend Chris Jericho calls him Eddy in his books. Further investigation proves that Latino Heat spelled it that way himself, subscribing to the Wrestling Observer under that name. The WWF/E even used the right spelling at first, before changing it.

It's not something any Guerrero superfan should beat themselves up over, of course. Even Vickie (Vicky?) Guerrero spells it the other way when tweeting about him.

Professional writer, punk werewolf and nesting place for starfish. Obsessed with squid, spirals and story. And pro wrestling, which is both a blessing and a curse depending on exactly how bad RAW is this week. I tweet nonsense under the name Jack The Bodiless at @desincarne. You can follow me all you like, just don't touch my stuff.
