In a rather sad story, Banks revealed that she went to the first RAW Supershow following Guerrero's untimely demise. According to Banks, she won tickets to be in the front row the day before the event. Unbeknownst to her, Guerrero passed away prior to the show. Banks, who brought her own "I Love Eddie" sign to the event, assumed "R.I.P. Eddie" signs in the crowd had to do with Guerrero facing off against the Undertaker that night. Banks called missing the opportunity to see Guerrero live and in person "one of the most heartbreaking things ever."
