Longtime wrestling star Chavo Guerrero Sr. died yesterday (Sat 11 Feb) at the age of 68 due to complications from liver cancer.
His son and former WWE Superstar Chavo Guerrero Jr. announced the news on Instagram:
Today the world lost a true rebel. He did things “HIS” way. Not always right, not always wrong, but He always followed what he believed in. He was diagnosed with Liver Cancer in early January of this year. As believer in Christ Jesus, he is now in Paradise. Today is a Sad day in the Guerrero Family. Rest In Peace Chavo “Classic” Guerrero Sr. #rip #nowinheaven

Also known as Chavo Classic, Guerrero Sr. was born in El Paso, Texas, 18 years prior to his brother and WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero.
Chavo competed all over the United States, and he was an especially big star in California, where he became a 15-time NWA Americas heavyweight champion for NWA Hollywood Wrestling.
He also had a role in WWE in 2004 when he managed his son in feuds against Eddie, as well as Rey Mysterio.
