    JBL posted the following blog on his Facebook page today, remembering his friend Eddie Guerrero. Here is that blog entry…

    I've written a lot about Eddie Guerrero and I never get tired of talking about my friend, this is the 7th anniversary of his passing.

    Eddie was a groomsman in my wedding and I did part of his eulogy at his funeral, we were good friends-I really miss Eddie and so wish he were still around. We had so much fun together, and he meant more to my success than anyone.

    The JBL character wasn't working and Eddie and Chavo Sr came up with the idea for the 'heart attack' of his mother on Mother's Day in his hometown of El Paso. I literally had a police escort out of town for my own safety that night, talk about heat.

    This angle with CM Punk and Heyman faking a heart attack last night, I loved it-this is something Eddie would have loved also. People get worked up, and it is their choice to be offended by whatever they choose. I thought it was awesome, I just wish JBL could have done it!

    Eddie did as much for me personally as he did professionally, he was a truly amazing guy.

    The story of Chavo and Eddie getting into a heated argument backstage over the mother angle when Chavo started ribbing Eddie that Mrs Guerrero should take the clothesline was hilarious-it's just that no one saw it but me.

    The match we had at Judgement Day set the attendance record at the Staples Center at the time, all off the heart attack angle. Again, if you are offended by the CM Punk story-it's your choice, but I got a guy wishing I was dead and several profanity filled Tweets over it. Really? Over a TV show, some have zero class when they can be keyboard warriors anonymously.

    Also, the filming of Jerry as he was receiving medical care got some really nasty comments. If that was an NFL game or any event that had a ton of cameras around, do you think that a guy who has been told to film everything who has a camera on his shoulder would not film it. I thought it was all done very well and was one of the best Raws I have seen in some time.

    I thought the welcome back of Jerry was great, I love Jerry and he is one of the best of all time. A true Hall of Famer. We share a birthday though his year is many decades ahead of me.

    Here's highlights of the Judgement Day bloodbath, Eddie had to be taken to the hospital after this-I didn't realize at the time how much blood he was losing. Seeing the tape I am shocked.

    I miss Eddie, would be great to have him around now after all these years and laugh and talk.

    There's a big difference between an NFL player who sprains an ankle or gets a concussion versus a guy who's literally dying.
    Eh, Comics is a pretty cool guy...

    Dennis Byrd (NY Jets) was paralyzed on the field and the cameras filmed the whole thing

    no one knows the extent of the injury until after the fact

    I think they knew about Lawler. Anybody who didn't is a liar or a fool.

    JBLs statement is also a bit contradictory in the sense that you dont see WWE cameras constantly rolling backstage every time someone has a minor injury or an injury that will sideline them for a few months, the exception being if it's written into the story.

    To me, as long as Lawler isn't bothered by any of this I'm fine with anything they're doing.

    If Jerry in fact is bothered by any of this, then I'd agree it's tactless. But if he's cool with it, not sure why it should bother anyone else.

    I think its rather tasteless regardless of whether or not Lawler is okay with it. But if Lawler's okay with it I can't exactly fault WWE for running with it. I just think there are better ways to generate heat for Punk

    Now that Linda has lost the election WWE has nothing to lose. Hence the tasteless promo concerning Lawler. Which makes me wonder what would have happened had he died of a heart attack? Continue making heart attack related jokes?

    I doubt that...but I still am concerned for Lawlers health, being back on the road after only 8 weeks

    I'm with you. I know Lawler loves his job and I respect that but sometimes you have to let it go for the sake of your own health.

    Lawler, Flair, & Hogan are top 3 for strummin' an angel's harp in the ring for me.
