WWE News: Chavo Guerrero Sr. (Chavo Classic) Passes Away at 68 Years Of Age

Chavo Guerrero Sr., the brother of the late Eddie Guerrero and father of Chavo Guerrero Jr., passed away today at the age of 68. It was noted by Chavo Jr. in  a post on Instagram that his father was diagnosed with liver cancer in January. His real name was Salvador Guerrero III.

Guerrero will be remembered by WWE fans as a former Cruiserweight Champion that held the title for about one month in 2004. He was mostly used as a heel manager for his son Chavo. He often used the name “Chavo Classic” in WWE, which was pretty clever.

He was the oldest son of Gory Guerrero. Here’s a picture of him with his brothers and father. Eddie is on the right.

Chris Jericho also commented on Guerrero’s death.

On behalf of everybody here at TJRWrestling, we send our condolences to his family, friends and fans all over the world. May he rest in peace.
