One on one with Guerrero
Don't tease him about his green jeans -- the WWE star has a 'Latin temper,' you know
By TJ MADIGAN - Calgary Sun


HOW THE DEVIL ARE YOU?

Good, good. I'm in Tampa, Florida, right now, so it's not as early here as it is where you are.

IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT AND YOU AREN'T WRESTLING. WHATCHA GONNA DO?

Spending time with my kids. I usually work Saturday nights, though.

PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF.

OK. I lie, cheat and steal, so that's three right there. And I'd have to say Latin temper. That's five.

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AT SCHOOL?

Shy.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST TREASURED MATERIAL POSSESSION?

My family are my most treasured possession but you said it has to be material? My low riders.

WHAT'S YOUR POISON?

In the past, alcohol. But by the grace of God, I've been clean for three years.

WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU PUNCHED AND WHY?

I dunno, probably (WWE wrestler) Bradshaw because he touched my mom. It was part of the show.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST UNPLEASANT CHARACTERISTIC?

My temper.

WHAT'S THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING YOU'VE EVER BOUGHT?

I don't know. I'm looking at my wife and asking her to help me out here. I really don't know. Pass.

WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED?

Be real. And don't believe your own hype.

WHAT REPAIRS COULD YOU PERFORM ON YOUR CAR?

I can put the gas in.

WHAT'S YOUR CULINARY SPECIALTY?

Fajitas.

WHAT'S YOUR CELLPHONE RINGTONE?

My ringtone is Heaven by Los Lonely Boys.

ARE YOU EASILY EMBARRASSED?

No, not really anymore.

WHAT TV SERIES DO YOU WANT ON DVD?

I own Friends, so probably something funny like that.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE UNHEALTHY FOOD?

Cheesecake.

WHERE DO YOU WANNA HOLIDAY?

Hawaii.

WHAT'S THE BEST CONCERT YOU'VE SEEN?

Best concert was easily Santana.

IF YOU WEREN'T A WRESTLER, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?

That's a good question. I'd probably be doing something else in wrestling. If not, I've always loved special effects in the movies. That always interested me and I was actually looking into that for a while.

DO YOU COLLECT YOUR OWN MEMORABILIA?

No, I only collect very special things from special moments in my career. If anything, I try to stay really humble.

WHAT TRAIT DO YOU ADMIRE MOST IN PEOPLE?

Their heart.

DO YOU LIKE TO SIGN AUTOGRAPHS?

Only sometimes.

DO YOU HAVE A PET?

I have two pets, two dogs. A Chesapeake and a chihuahua.

WHAT WAS THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE?

I still haven't had it. It just gets better and better.

YOU HAVE A FEW HOURS TO KILL. BOOK OR VIDEO GAME?

Definitely a video game. Right now, I'm into Madden NFL.

WHAT'S YOUR GREATEST FEAR?

Myself.

WHAT'S YOUR WORST HABIT?

Picking at my chest.

WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?

My kids. Oh, and I like slapstick comedy, too.

WHAT MOVIE MADE YOU TEARY-EYED?

Old Yeller (laughs). No, there was this movie called Father starring Jack Lemmon which I saw the same year my Dad passed away. Every time I see that movie, it gets to me.

EVER ORDER PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING ON PPV?

Oh yeah, I order them all the time.

STRANGEST PIECE OF FAN MAIL?

I've had pretty strange ones but the really weird ones are when they seem like they're stalking me.

FUNNIEST THING YOU'VE SEEN DURING WRESTLING?

Dirty diapers thrown into the ring during one of my matches in Mexico.

ANY SUPERSTITIONS?

Nah, I don't believe in superstitions.

UGLIEST THING IN YOUR WARDROBE?

I'm a wrestler, so I've obviously got some old wrestling tights. I also own some really bad green jeans.

COULD YOU BE CONVINCED TO KARAOKE AND, IF SO, WHAT'S YOUR SONG?

In a word, no.
