Eddie Guerrero was a Mexican-American professional wrestler born on October 9, 1967, in El Paso, Texas, USA.
He went to Thomas Jefferson High School and then to the University of New Mexico. Then he received an athletic scholarship which led him to transfer to New Mexico Highlands University.
Let’s just say that the Guerrero wrestling family had high expectations.
Guerrero began wrestling as the original Mascara Magica in Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre in 1986. And he had a promising start.

But that was only a minor setback.

He dominated the ring through the years.

Then in 2004, he was named the SmackDown! Royal Rumble champion. It paved his way to winning the WWE Championship in the same year.
It was all going well.
After Guerrero defeated Mysterio in some matches and Mysterio defeated Guerrero in others – the two teamed up in 2005. Eddie was with Rey Mysterio when he bagged the WWE Tag Team Championships for the fourth time.
