She is also the wife of the late professional wrestler Eddie Guerrero.She started off by making cameos in the feud between her then-husband and Rey Mysterio Jr and became involved in the company full-time as a heel in 2006 after acting as the occasional peacemaker in the controversial feud between Chavo Guerrero and Mysterio. She later went on to have storylines with Edge and later LayCool . After spending some time managing for Dolph Ziggler, later becoming the managing supervisor of RAW but was fired from that position in July 2013. She then became the General Manager of Smackdown, until June 2014, when she was fired for the last time by Stephanie McMahon and left the company.As per usual, That Other Wikiprovides full details of her life and career.
It is my pleasure to introduce to you: Tropes associated with Vickie Guerrero!
Recently, it has become AJ Lee, sometime after Lee became Raw General Manager on Raw 1000 (July 23, 2012). Notably, this grudge has lasted in unbroken continuity for almost two years, regardless of either's alignment - AJ, at the time, had one foot on each side of the Heel-Face Revolving Door. She since turned full face and then became the Divas' top heel. She and Vickie still cannot stand each other.
The Artifact: She's less a Diva in the modern-day sense (although she is quite attractive for her age) and more of a call-back to the old school valets/managers of yesteryear.
Big Bad Wannabe: Whenever she's in an authority figure role, she thinks herself as the ultimate evil mastermind who's five steps ahead of everyone. This never, ever lasts long.
Disproportionate Retribution: Granted, the two have had history, which Vickie readily admits, but Vickie's reaction to AJ Lee calling her a "grandma" leading up to the 3/24/14 was to first call AJ a "bitch" on live television... and then book her in a Divas title match at WrestleMania XXX involving every other Diva currently on the active main roster - including a couple that literally hadn't been seen anywhere on WWE programming for ages.
Stripping The Undertaker of the World Heavyweight Championship because of using the then-new submission move Hell's Gate is definitely this. A month later, Teddy Long and the WWE Board of Directors call her out on this. She also banned Edge's spear for no reason a few years later.
Even Evil Has Standards: On the 12/03/13 edition of Raw, CM Punk came to her and whined about Kane attacking him minutes ago... right after interrupting a tribute The Undertaker was doing to the late Paul Bearer. Heel!Vickie promptly put Punk in a no disqualification match with Kane for his troubles. Punk should have known better than to try to beg sympathy from the widow of a wrestler.
Heel-Face Revolving Door: In the true professional wrestling sense. While she was one of the biggest villains in WWE, she was still treated like a face in other promotions, FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling, then WWE's developmental system) being one of the more amusing examples since it is a WWE subsidiary.
Heel-Face Turn: On her last night in WWE no less. Stephanie McMahon had forced Vickie to beg for her job in the middle of the ring, and looked like she was going to fire Vickie regardless. Vickie's only other option was to face Stephanie in a match, which Stephanie attempted to use to humiliate Vickie further, first by saying Vickie wasn't nearly the wrestler her late husband Eddie was (true, but you can't compare the two when Vickie was always more of a backstage personality instead of a wrestler), and then forcing Vickie to wrestle Layla, Alicia Fox, and Rosa Mendes in a gross-stuff-in-a-pool match. Vickie invoked the spirit of Eddie, saying she was going to "lie, cheat and steal" her way out and entering to his theme music, but Vickie was fired anyway. The crowd, realizing this was Vickie's last match, showed its support as Vickie tossed Stephanie into the goop and shimmied her way up the ramp to "Viva la Raza".
Hypocrite: She scolds Daniel Bryan for "repeating the same old catchphrase over and over." Right after screaming "Excuse me!" as per her usual entrance.
She tried to make it look like John Cena was having an affair with AJ Lee, which got AJ fired. John Cena points out that Vickie is not one to talk, considered she has a habit of using her position to help wrestlers she's clearly having romantic relations with in the past, including Edge who was her husband.
No Indoor Voice: This certainly seems to be the case. Even her non-screaming voice is pretty loud and grating.
Pet the Dog: A recipient of such a moment in Real Life. After Eddie died, Vickie was given a (rumored to be lifetime) contract with the company as appreciation for her husband's contributions and as a way to support her two daughters.
Downplayed recently, as she's become a sycophantic pawn to the McMahon Family's whims... which is Fridge Brilliance when you realize she's been fired once before and doesn't want to take a chance on it happening again.
Wild Card: She's still a cackling, evil witch, but now her fiats have less to do with whether you're a face or a heel than they do with whether or not you personally pissed her off recently. One example of this is when The Authority forced her into a match with longtime Arch-EnemyAJ Lee as punishment for her mismanagement of a previous show. AJ, who has been a heel for most of the year, made Vickie tap and took great relish in it (since Guerrero had stolen her job as GM earlier that year) The very following Smackdown, Vickie retaliates by placing AJ in a tornado handicap match (as in the two members of the other team don't have to tag in/out) against Cameron and Naomi.
