SmackDown’s 15th Anniversary Celebration saw the returns of former SmackDown General Managers Teddy Long, Booker T, John Laurinaitis and Stephanie McMahon in her first live appearance since being removed from the position in October 2003. There was, however, one notable absence from the show: Vickie Guerrero. She revealed Saturday that she was invited to appear on the show by WWE, but had to decline due to new life responsibilities.
“HEY ALL…#wwe did ask me to be at #Smackdown15! I was the one to decline. New life has me committed to new responsibilities,” Guerrero wrote on Twitter. “One can’t start a job and ask for time off….not professional and not what I do. I miss the ring but time to move on & write new chapters.”
She added, “Thanks all!! I’m sorry I Wasnt there! The love and support is felt.”
Guerrero now works for a pharmacy company. She said in August, “I process patients for treatment thru insurance co. and work w doctors!! #Godisgood.”
