"It's a strange phenomenon that happens between an entertainer and a viewer. When someone stands on a stage or in front of
a camera they're offering themselves to you. They're offering you a chance to look into their lives and judge them. Even if
they're playing a character, there is an openness — an invitation. And we, as viewers, are always eager to accept. With

surrender compassion for life. We granted Eddie the door, and he gave us the key. Eddie Guerrero's famous t-shirt that reads,
"Eddie Stole My T-shirt," should also include the words, "and our hearts."
