WWE star Chris Jericho disclosed this afternoon that Chavo Guerrero Sr., who had a long career in a number of territories and a quick run in WWE as "Chavo Classic" alongside his son Chavo Jr, has passed away. Guerrero was 68 years old and was the oldest son of lucha libre legend Gori Guerrero. He had a long, storied career.
Guerrero, a former WWE Cruiserweight champion, was along the wrestlers who filed a class action lawsuit against WWE in July 2016 over concussion-related issues.
We will have more on Guerrero's life and passing later and we'd like to express our deepest condolences to his family, friends and fans during this sad time.
On Instagram, Jericho wrote, "RIP #ChavoGuerrero... a true pioneer and legend in this business. It was a pleasure to know him, even if he did owe me 60 dollars. ???? Say hi to Eddy for me bro...."
