“I’m like ‘oh my god, this is insane” – Vickie Guerrero opens up on working with Edge in WWE and what her thoughts were during their storyline.
Vickie Guerrero only found a job in the WWE because she was the wife of late Superstar and legend Eddie Guerrero. But she held on to it for so many years because of how amazing she was at everything the WWE and Vince McMahon asked her to do.

She is most remembered for her romantic storyline with Hall of famer Edge. Vicky even credited him for teaching her so much. However, she knew the reason she had her job. In her own words, despite being untalented she felt like she had a lot to prove.
Vickie Guerrero opens up on working with Edge in WWE
“Edge was such a gentleman,” she said on Boston Wrestling MWF’s Wrestling Insiders. “He taught me so much about the ring and the psychology of the storyline. He was on board.
“ I had that fear because here I was, Eddie Guerrero’s wife. I was green and I had no talent. This is not what I did in my career. I was at home with the girls and the only reason I was there was because I was Eddie’s wife and I had a lot to prove to everyone.
“So to be entrusted to Edge and Dolph Ziggler; for them to say ‘hey, you’re gonna work with Vickie Guerrero’, that’s something that really scared me and I had a lot of fear because I didn’t want to insult their legacy.
“This is Edge who was this amazing wrestler, talented. He has his own legacy and now they’re asking me to manage him and I’m like ‘oh my god, this is insane’. When Vince put us together, I think the first they saw Edge and I on TV together. I was lecturing him about what a bad job he did. I was kind of doing the General Manager role. So when Vince McMahon said, ‘we’re going to show some unity with you and Edge tonight’. I was like okay, great, how can that even be? What’s he thinking?

She also opened up on her romantic angle with the Rated R superstar and Vince McMahon’s contribution to the plot.
“When Vince said ‘you and Edge are going to make out and we’re going to show that fans that you are actually behind the scenes conspiring against the whole roster’ I was like, I’m going to romantically kiss Edge. ‘We’re going to have this romance and it’s going to be awesome,” she said. “When I was thinking about it, Vince was like ‘no, I want you to grossly slobber, disgustingly kiss him so the fans can get even more upset with you all’.”
Vickie is currently in AEW managing former Women’s champion Nyla Rose. Back in her time in the WWE, she was the general manager of both RAW and SmackDown before managing Edge and later Dolph Ziggler; both in romantic roles.
