15Matt Striker Dissed Eddie Guerrero
With his background as a well-educated teacher, one might expect Matt Striker to make himself familiar with the WWE rulebook before he entered the company. It turned out he must have skipped that class, because he found himself repeatedly in the doghouse throughout his first year working for Vince McMahon.
What exactly happened between Striker and Eddie Guerrero isn’t exactly clear, except that Striker said something to Eddie that made him feel disrespected. The real story is that the Eddie thing was just the tip of the iceberg, as The Undertaker, Chris Benoit, JBL, and Hardcore Holly would all find themselves upset with Striker’s arrogant attitude by the end of the day, as well. Shortly after he dissed Eddie, someone overheard Striker telling a road agent that the Raw roster was better than SmackDown’s at the time, apparently upset he was forced to switch brands to work a dark match.
