Salvador "Chavo" Guerrero IV[4][1][7] (born October 20, 1970)[1] also known as Chavo Guerrero and Chavo Guerrero Jr.,[8] is a third generation Mexican American professional wrestler, actor and member of the Guerrero wrestling family,[3] currently signed with Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA). He has also worked with World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).

As a singles wrestler, he is a one-time ECW Champion in WWE,[9][10] and a six-time WCW/WWE Cruiserweight Champion. He has also achieved success in tag team wrestling, being a five-time world tag team champion – winning the WWE Tag Team Championship twice with Eddie Guerrero as Los Guerreros, the WCW World Tag Team Championship once with Corporal Cajun as the Misfits in Action, and the TNA World Tag Team Championship twice with Hernandez. Between WCW, WWE, and TNA, Guerrero has held a dozen total championships.

Early life[edit]

Salvador was born and raised in El Paso, Texas.[11] Guerrero grew up watching wrestling and going to wrestling promotions where he watched his family wrestle. There was also a wrestling ring in the Guerreros' back garden. Chavo played with his uncle Eddie Guerrero constantly in the ring, practicing moves on each other.[12]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Early career (1994–1996)[edit]

Guerrero made his professional wrestling debut in May 1994 wrestling in Mexico and Japan including New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).[4][6] He toured with NJPW during 1996, featuring mainly on the lower card.[4]

World Championship Wrestling[edit]

Debut (1996–1998)[edit]

He joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in May 1996.[6] He made his in-ring debut wrestling Steven Regal in a dark match.[6] Chavo then defeated Bobby Eaton on his WCW Saturday Night debut. On July 22, on Guerrero's WCW Monday Nitro debut, he lost to Dean Malenko via submission. On August 3, 1996 Chavo received his first title shot in WCW against Ric Flair on WCW Saturday Night. It was for the WCW United States Championship. Flair beat Chavo via submission to retain his championship. Due to Flair not breaking the submission after the match, Eddie Guerrero rushed to the ring which lead to a brawl between Eddie and Flair.[13]

Chavo's first pay-per-view (PPV) appearance was in a dark match where he lost to Konnan on WCW Hog Wild. Then at WCW WorldWide debut, on August 11, 1996, he and Eddie defeated High Voltage. After a series of singles wins, Chavo faced Diamond Dallas Page on WCW Fall Brawl in a losing effort on September 15, 1996. On January 21, 1997, at WCW Clash of the Champions in a six-man tag team match, the team of Chavo, Chris Jericho and Super Calo, defeated the team of Konnan, Mr. JL and La Parka.

LWO, Pepe and Eddie Guerrero feud (1998–1999)[edit]

While in WCW, Guerrero shared the limelight with his uncle Eddie, becoming a reluctant ally of his uncle's. As part of their angle, Eddie continually tried to make Guerrero adopt Eddie's cheating tactics, but he often refused to do so. Eventually, Guerrero's treatment at the hands of Eddie would drive him "crazy" and Chavo adopted the gimmick of a psycho fixated with a hobby horse he dubbed "Pepé."[6] This led to a feud with Norman Smiley in which Pepé was thrown into a woodchipper.[14] Another result of his insanity, was his inability to join Eddie's Latino World Order stable, which was a take-off of the nWo.

On January 24, 1998, on the WCW Souled Out PPV, the team of Chavo, Juventud Guerrera, Super Calo and Lizmark Jr. defeated La Parka, Psicosis, Silver King and El Dandy.[15] On May 17, at WCW Slamboree, Chavo competed in a cruiserweight battle royal, eventually won by Dean Malenko.[16] Five days later, Chavo faced Malenko for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship on WCW Thunder in a losing effort.

On June 14, Guerrero defeated his uncle Eddie at the Great American Bash PPV.[17] In July 1998 at the Bash at the Beach PPV, Chavo faced Stevie Ray in a "tune up match" before he faced Eddie in a Hair vs Hair match in which the winner gets to shave his opponents hair. Chavo lost via small package and began to shave his own hair off.[18]

On January 17, 1999 at WCW Souled Out, Chavo faced Norman Smiley. Before this match, they traded wins on two episodes of Nitro. This match was booked due to Chavo's companion Pepe being burnt by Smiley, ending the Pepe gimmick. Norman defeated Chavo via submission.[19]

WCW cruiserweight division, MIA and departure (1999–2001)[edit]

Guerrero and Billy Kidman tag teamed for a WCW tag team title tournament held on Nitro. Chavo then turned on Kidman after being eliminated from the tournament, starting a feud with him. Chavo then faced Billy for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship on WCW Superbrawl 9 on February 21, 1999. Chavo failed to win the championship.[20]

He was also a member of the comedy stable The Misfits in Action (MIA), consisting of Chavo, Hugh Morris (better known as Bill Demott), Lash Leroux and Van Hammer. They were managed by Major Gunns. Chavo was billed as Lieutenant Loco. On may 6, 2000 their first tag team match saw the MIA defeat four Jobbers on WCW Worldwide.

As Loco, he defeated Daffney for the Cruiserweight Championship in a triangle match also involving Disco Inferno on June 7, 2000 episode of Thunder.[21] On June 11, 2000 at the Great American Bash, Lt. Loco defeated Disco Inferno to retain the title. Loco lost the championship to Lance Storm a month later on Nitro.[22] At WCW Mayhem, Loco left the MIA and reverted to Chavo Guerrero Jr.[6]

Guerrero won the Cruiserweight Championship from Mike Sanders on December 6 episode of Thunder.[23] Chavo retained the title against Rey Mysterio Jr. on February 18, 2001 at the WCW SuperBrawl Revenge in Nashville, Tennessee. As Cruiserweight Champion, Guerrero engaged in a feud against "Sugar" Shane Helms eventually losing the championship to Helms at WCW Greed.[24]

World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment[edit]

Los Guerreros (2001–2004)[edit]

See also: Los Guerreros

Guerrero's contract with WCW was one of the twenty-five contracts that were included in WCW's sale to the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Like most of the wrestling talent that came over with WCW, Guerrero wrestled under the WCW banner as his WWF debut was as part of The Alliance,[25] a group of WCW and ECW employees who had, in storyline, invaded WWF after their promotion was bought out by WWF. In a backstage segment, Chavo shown up late to an alliance meeting and gets beat up by Stone Cold Steve Austin.

In 2002, Chavo wrestled on WWE Jakked which spotlighted wrestlers in matches, interviews and updates. Chavo faced the likes of Shane Helms, Crash Holly and Maven. During this year he wrestled on WWE Metal, he faced similar wrestlers that were on Jakked. on April 13, 2002, Guerrero faced Billy Kidman on an episode of WWE Metal for the Cruiserweight Championship and lost the match via pinfall. Chavo attacked Kidman after the match. Guerrero spent time as an undercard wrestler in the company, which was soon rebranded World Wrestling Entertainment, wrestling for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on numerous occasions.[26] He also worked as a trainer for WWE's second Tough Enough competition.

Soon after returning to the active roster, Guerrero was aligned with his uncle Eddie, forming the tag team Los Guerreros.[27] In contrast to his previous WCW storyline with his uncle, Guerrero fully adopted his uncle's policy of "Lie, Cheat and Steal" to win matches as part of the gimmick. In October 2002, the duo was inserted into a tournament to crown the first WWE Tag Team Champions, in which they lost to the team of Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit. Los Guerreros won the tag team championships at Survivor Series, when they defeated Angle and Benoit and Edge and Rey Mysterio in a Triple threat tag team elimination match. They continued to feud with those teams, and also feuded with Billy Kidman and John Cena, in successful title defenses.

On the February 2, 2003 episode of SmackDown!, Los Guerreros lost their tag team championships to Team Angle. At WrestleMania XIX, they were again defeated by Team Angle in a triple threat match for the tag team titles, also involving the team of Chris Benoit and Rhyno. They continued to feud with Team Angle and won the championships back on the September 18 episode of SmackDown! One month later, they lost the titles to The Basham Brothers.[28] After losing their tag team championships, Chavo became jealous of his uncle's growing popularity and WWE Championship ambitions, and Guerrero turned on Eddie, broke from the team, and became a villain again.[29] He was soon joined by his father Chavo Sr. who sided with his son instead of his brother.[30] Guerrero and his father teamed together to defeat Eddie and Kurt Angle on the January 22, 2004 episode of SmackDown![31] Eddie defeated Chavo at the 2004 Royal Rumble to end their feud.[32]

Cruiserweight Champion and Kerwin White (2004–2005)[edit]

Chavo as Kerwin White vs Tajiri

At the No Way Out event, Chavo defeated Rey Mysterio to win the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, following interference from his father (now known as Chavo Classic). At WrestleMania XX, Chavo successfully defended his title in a 10-man Cruiserweight Open by last eliminating Mysterio. In the following weeks, Guerrero defeated Mysterio, Funaki, Ultimo Dragon, Spike Dudley, Jamie Noble, Nunzio in one-on-one title matches.

On the May 4 taping of SmackDown!, Chavo issued an open challenge for anyone he had not yet defeated to face him for his title. The challenge was answered by Jacqueline, who defeated Guerrero for the title after she gave him a "low blow." He regained the title at Judgment Day in a match with his hand tied behind his back, though his father Chavo Classic untied it during the match. Chavo then dropped the title on a May 18 taping of SmackDown! to his father, who "accidentally" pinned his son in a Triple Threat Match which also involved Spike Dudley.

On the August 26, 2004, episode of SmackDown!, Guerrero suffered a legitimate concussion due to Billy Kidman's shooting star press and had to be taken to the hospital.[33] Guerrero returned several months later, exacting revenge from Kidman, who had turned into a villain as a result of the injury to Guerrero.[34] Shortly after his feud with Kidman ended, Guerrero returned to his villainous persona after receiving a villain reaction while facing then-cruiserweight champion Funaki in a losing effort during a SmackDown! show in Japan.[35]

Guerrero went on to win the Cruiserweight Championship once again at No Way Out in 2005, after eliminating Paul London in a six-way cruiserweight gauntlet match.[36] He lost the title to London in a battle royal a few weeks later; Guerrero was the first person eliminated from the battle royal when everyone else in the match ganged up to throw him out right at the beginning.[37]

In June, Guerrero became one of the last minute trades in the 2005 WWE Draft, which saw him jump from SmackDown! to the Raw brand. The next week, on Raw, he denounced his Hispanic heritage in favor of the "Anglo-American way".[38] This came after two weeks of being battered by the Mexican faction, The Mexicools.[39][40] It led to the changing of his persona to "Kerwin White", a stereotypical, middle-class, white, conservative, Anglo-American man.[5] He dyed his hair blond and often drove a golf cart to the ring which held his golf clubs.[5] His new catchphrase became the pun, "If it's not White, it's not right." The phrase later changed to "If it's not Kerwin White, it's not right". It was later phased out entirely. Soon after his debut, White started making suggestive remarks towards African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, Native Americans, and other non-White people, specifically directed towards Shelton Benjamin. On an episode of Raw, White cost Shelton a match against Rob Conway.[41] Benjamin defeated White by disqualification the following week when Kerwin attacked Shelton with his golf club.[42] At Unforgiven, White was beaten by Benjamin.[43] White then hired Nick Nemeth as his new "caddy" to help him in his matches.[44]

Aftermath of Eddie's death (2005–2007)[edit]

Guerrero makes his entrance at a WWE house show in Canada

On the morning of November 13, 2005, Guerrero checked into the same hotel as his uncle, Eddie, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Guerrero was alerted by hotel security that Eddie did not respond to a wake-up call and opened the locked door to the room, Guerrero found his uncle unconscious. Guerrero attempted CPR but Eddie was declared dead when paramedics arrived on the scene. Later that afternoon, Guerrero appeared at a press conference with WWE chairman Vince McMahon to address Eddie's death. They announced that both shows that week would be tributes to Eddie.[45] These events resulted in Guerrero dropping the Kerwin White gimmick and wrestling under his real name. Under his real name, he defeated John "Bradshaw" Layfield (JBL) on 18 November 2005 episode of SmackDown!, using the "Three Amigos" triple suplexes and the Frog Splash in tribute to Eddie.[46] He also used the cheating tactic of throwing a steel chair to an opponent who catches it (while lying down himself) as the referee turns around and disqualifies the opponent, which Eddie made famous.

On 24 February 2006 episode of SmackDown!, Guerrero attacked Randy Orton with the Three Amigos and the frog splash when Orton began to insult Eddie and the heritage of the Guerreros. Guerrero was soon dragged out by security, but kept yelling to Orton "You forgot about the Guerreros – the greatest wrestling family!" and "You forgot me!".[47] On 27 February episode of Raw, Guerrero faced off against Shelton Benjamin in a qualifying match for the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 22. During the match, Orton interfered and hit Guerrero with the RKO. This allowed Shelton to get the pinfall victory.[48] He proceeded to challenge Benjamin for the WWE Intercontinental Championship, but ended up losing. In a segment that aired on WWE Unlimited, an emotional Guerrero decided to quit WWE, in storyline, after believing he had let his family, Eddie, and the fans down and expressed his doubts about being a wrestler.[49]

Guerrero appeared at Judgment Day to support Rey Mysterio.[50] Guerrero also supported Mysterio for a few weeks on SmackDown!. At the Great American Bash, Guerrero interfered in Mysterio's World Heavyweight Championship match, ostensibly to help Mysterio.[51] Guerrero turned into a villain once more, however, by hitting Mysterio with a steel chair, which allowed challenger King Booker to win the match.[51] On 4 August episode of SmackDown!, Guerrero accused Rey of using Eddie's name to succeed, claiming that Rey disrespected Eddie's memory. Guerrero went on to beat Mysterio at SummerSlam, after Vickie Guerrero accidentally knocked Mysterio off the top turnbuckle. On 25 August, Vickie came down to the ring to apologize to Mysterio and Guerrero. Vickie ended up turning on Mysterio by hitting him in the back with a steel chair. The following week on SmackDown!, Vickie announced herself as Guerrero's new manager. Weeks later on 8 October, Mysterio gained his revenge on Guerrero by defeating him in a Falls Count Anywhere match at No Mercy. Guerrero eventually challenged Mysterio to an "I Quit" match, in which Guerrero won after inflicting multiple chair shots to Mysterio and in turn injuring Mysterio's knee in process. As per the condition of the match, Rey was forced to leave SmackDown!.

A week later, Chris Benoit, another old friend of Eddie's, tried talking to Vickie. It started a feud between Guerrero and Benoit and both men would have numerous confrontations over the following weeks. Benoit defeated Guerrero to retain the WWE United States Championship at the Survivor Series. After weeks of continued interaction, the two faced off in a United States title rematch at Armageddon that Guerrero also lost when he tapped out to a Sharpshooter. Guerrero got yet another rematch the following Friday, losing the match after Vickie hit Benoit with the title belt. Guerrero snapped after the match, knocking over Vickie and attacking Benoit. The feud concluded with Benoit forcing Guerrero to submit in a No Disqualification match.

At No Way Out, Guerrero won a Cruiserweight Open Match when he pinned Jimmy Wang Yang after a frog splash, thus winning the Cruiserweight Championship from Gregory Helms.[52] On 24 June, Guerrero retained his title against Jimmy Wang Yang at Vengeance: Night of Champions.[53] He then retained his title on 29 June episode of SmackDown! in a triple threat match that also involved Jamie Noble and Funaki, when he pinned Funaki after the Gory Bomb.[54] At The Great American Bash, he lost the Cruiserweight title in a Cruiserweight open when Hornswoggle pinned Noble.[55]

Guerrero then turned his attention to Rey Mysterio, whom he had put out of action, in storyline, in 2006. Before Mysterio's return at SummerSlam, Guerrero mocked Mysterio's knee injury and taunted him during matches.[56][57][58] He was, however, unable to defeat Mysterio at the pay-per-view.[59] He then lost an "I Quit" rematch to Mysterio, when Mysterio continued to assault Chavo's left knee with a steel chair.[60] This allowed Guerrero to have time off to serve his suspension for violating the WWE Wellness Policy.[61]

Chavo remained inactive until the 18 December 2007 episode of ECW, where he appeared after the main event between WWE United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter and ECW Champion CM Punk and proceeded to attack the vulnerable ECW Champion, sending a message that he wanted a title shot.[62] Guerrero challenged Punk to several matches[63][64] until he finally won the third via countout after interference from World Heavyweight Champion Edge to earn a championship match.[65][66] On 22 January episode of ECW, Guerrero defeated CM Punk in a No Disqualification match to win the ECW title following interference from Edge. In the process he proclaimed Edge and company as his "familia".[9][67][68] He then successfully defended his title against CM Punk at No Way Out and on the 4 March episode of ECW, both times pinning Punk after a frog splash.[69]

At WrestleMania XXIV, Guerrero lost the ECW Championship to Kane in a record eleven seconds.[70] Shortly afterward, Bam Neely debuted to act as his bodyguard. Shortly after losing the ECW Championship, Guerrero had several attempts to regain the ECW Championship including losing to Kane at Backlash and also failing to become the number one contender at One Night Stand. Guerrero became involved in the Edge-Undertaker rivalry at this point, but Edge later turned on all La Familia teammates, including Guerrero. After this, Guerrero returned to singles and tag team action with Neely, feuding with ECW newcomers Evan Bourne and Ricky Ortiz, and also failing to regain the ECW Championship at Unforgiven in a Championship Scramble match. He also was embroiled in the Undertaker-Big Show storyline, and lost a Casket match to the Undertaker on 31 October. After that he tried to win the ECW Championship from Matt Hardy, but he failed to win the title.

Final storylines (2009–2011)[edit]

Guerrero was drafted to the Raw brand as part of the 2009 Supplemental Draft.[71] He then became involved in the feud between Vickie Guerrero and Santino Marella, in which he attempted to help his Aunt in law on numerous occasions. At Extreme Rules, Guerrero and his aunt faced Santino in a Hog Pen match, in which the duo lost. Upon Vickie's departure from WWE, Chavo continued to feud with Marella and defeated him on 18 June episode of WWE Superstars.[72] Guerrero next feuded with Hornswoggle, where the two faced off in various types of matches (in which a handicap of some sort was imposed on Guerrero by the various celebrity guests left in charge of Raw every week) with Hornswoggle gaining the wins. Chavo finally exacted revenge when he and Chris Masters defeated Hornswoggle and Santino Marella in a tag team match on the September 28, 2009 episode of Raw. After the match, Chavo stopped Masters from attacking Hornswoggle, ending the feud.[73] Their feud won the award of Worst Feud of the Year by Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

He then started an alliance with Dolph Ziggler, and the duo defeated Christian in a handicap match. They both competed in a Battle Royal to determine who would replace The Undertaker in the World Heavyweight Championship match at Fatal Four Way, which was won by Rey Mysterio. On 9 July episode of Smackdown, Guerrero competed in a triple threat Money in the Bank qualifying match, along with Ziggler and MVP. Throughout the match, it became apparent that Vickie Guerrero (Ziggler's manager) had told Guerrero and Ziggler to work together to ensure Ziggler qualified for the Money in the Bank ladder match. During the match, however, when both MVP and Ziggler were down, Guerrero attempted to pin MVP to win the match himself, turning his back on Vickie and Ziggler, thus ending the alliance.

On 8 March, Chavo was announced as a NXT Pro to Darren Young for the fifth season of WWE NXT. On 6 May episode of SmackDown, Chavo commentated on a match between Tyson Kidd and Sin Cara, which Sin Cara won.

On August 30, 2007, Guerrero, along with nine other WWE wrestlers were named by Sports Illustrated to be given illegal steroids not in compliance with the Talent Wellness program. Guerrero received somatropin, nandrolone, and anastrozole between April 2005 and May 2006. Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero, and Brian Adams were also discovered to have been given steroids prior to their deaths during this investigation, as well as Sylvain Grenier.[61][124]

In July 2016, Guerrero and his father were named part of a class action lawsuit filed against WWE which alleged that wrestlers incurred traumatic brain injuries during their tenure and that the company concealed the risks of injury. The suit is litigated by attorney Konstantine Kyros, who has been involved in a number of other lawsuits against WWE.[125]
