Context YMMV / VickieGuerrero

Go To

1* CreatorsPet: Vickie was reportedly one of Wrestling/VinceMcMahon's favorite performers due to his friendship with Eddie. She was PutOnABus in 2009 for a while and this was de-emphasized after she returned. Helped by Teddy Long being the one in charge and Vickie only being the "official consultant" which limited what she could do.˛* DesignatedVillain: She often came across as this from time to time. Mostly whenever it came to the [[HollywoodPudgy face wrestlers making jokes about her weight]]. (Hiya, [[Creator/DwayneJohnson Rock]].)˛* FridgeBrilliance: Whether it was [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes appearing in FCW to support her and Eddie's daughter in the business]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards showing little patience for]] [[Wrestling/CMPunk disrespecting a deceased legend]] similar to [[Wrestling/RandyOrton how Eddie's name was treated after his death]], or [[WomanScorned punishing a man for hurting her in ways Eddie never did even at his worst]], such as [[Wrestling/{{Edge}} cheating on her with]] [[Wrestling/AliciaFox the wedding planner]] or [[Wrestling/DolphZiggler leaving her for]] [[Wrestling/AJLee the crazy girl she already hates]],[[note]]Eddie had a third child with another woman, but he and Vickie were separated at the time due to his drug issues, and said child was welcomed into the family's lives after they reconciled[[/note]] her moments of crossing the FaceHeelRevolvingDoor all had something or another to do with her late husband Wrestling/EddieGuerrero. Even her final HeelFaceTurn and exit moment maintained the same pattern—she was punished, humiliated, and fired by Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon because Wrestling/RomanReigns pulled an Eddie on Stephanie's drink, and in the end Vickie [[TheDogBitesBack bit back]] on her way out and celebrated with a final tribute to Eddie.˛* HollywoodHomely: Many a joke was made about Vickie's weight or unattractiveness or "Granny Panties." However, quite a few members of the audience (particularly those of a similar age), found her quite alluring. This made her unattractiveness something of an InformedAttribute as well as the horror male wrestlers were supposed to show at her romantic attentions somewhat confusing. They seemed to zigzag between this, as Vickie was referred to as a 'cougar' by other wrestlers, and she wrestled in a swimsuit in a battle royal (and it was ''not'' portrayed as FanDisservice).˛* HollywoodPudgy: During the start of her regular run on TV (not long after [[Wrestling/EddieGuerrero Eddie's]] [[TearJerker death]]), she indeed gained quite a bit of weight. She slimmed down over time, but there were still a high volume of on-screen jokes about her weight (usually from the [[HypocriticalHumor similarly overweight]] Jerry Lawler).˛* PeripheryDemographic: Although she was minimally involved with the Divas (save for a couple of months managing Wrestling/LayCool) she had a large following of Diva fans. ''Diva Dirt'' eventually started including her segments in their weekly recaps of the programming.˛* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: As noted below, she was despised as a character when she was initially pushed as a top heel. WWE then decided to play up her annoyingness — complete with a shrill "Excuse Me!" becoming her CatchPhrase. One can point to 2010 as when this trope kicked in. Notably in a ladder match, she tried to climb the ladder on behalf of Ziggler. The crowd who had been booing her immediately chanted "let's go Vickie!" - showing that she had entered LoveToHate territory.˛* UnexpectedCharacter: When WWE held the first women's rumble at ''Wrestling/RoyalRumble 2018,'' a lot of classic women's performers of past eras returned, many of which were predicted by the fans- but ''nobody'' expected Vickie Guerrero at #16!˛* UnintentionallySympathetic: The treatment from Wrestling/VinceMcMahon, Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon, and Wrestling/TripleH in regards to her position as the Managing Supervisor circa 2013 made her like this even more. ''She was advised by each of the [=McMahons=] to listen to each of them'', which made her distraught and confused. At a later job evaluation -- filled with mean-spirited jokes and the voting of the WWE Universe saying she did a poor job -- Stephanie fired Vickie on the spot, putting her to tears. In a separate backstage segment, Vickie was leaving, but Ryback comforted her and gave her a hug, saying that she deserved better. It got to the point that the company themselves acknowledged this enough to let Vickie end her career on a HeelFaceTurn in 2014, pulling a cathartic TheDogBitesBack on Stephanie after she sadistically fired her ''again''.˛* XPacHeat: [[InUniverse She started out getting this]], but she eventually started drawing more heat than any other wrestler, diva, or backstage personality in WWE (with the possible exception of Wrestling/MichaelCole). Even when she was associated with then-crowd-favored heel Wrestling/DolphZiggler, she ''still'' got epic boos. Her final appearance averted this, but it was against Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon, who ''at best'' fits the LoveToHate trope as well.


How well does it match the trope?
