Chavo Guerrero Sr. Passes Away at Age 68

In a post on Instagram, Chavo Guerrero Jr. noted that his father, Chavo Guerrero Sr. has passed away at age 68.  He noted in the post that his father was diagnosed with liver cancer last month.  Chavo Sr. was the son of Salvador “Gory” Guerrero and brother to the late Eddie Guerrro.

Chavo Sr. got his start in professional wrestling in the 1970’s in NWA Hollywood Wrestling, winning that championship fifteen times.  He won championships in the United States and in Japan, both as a singles competitor and in tag team action primarily with his brothers Hector and Mando.  His best known work came from his time in the UWF and the AWA, and he also had a run in WWE in 2004 where he was billed as Chavo Classic and had a run with the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.  His most recent involvement in wrestling came from appearances on the Lucha Underground television program.

Our condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Chavo Sr. in their time of loss.
