On Smackdown, I keep hearing about how Eddie and Chavo started wrestling when they were kids. How many members of their family are in the business and how talented are the tag champs in comparison? (It's damn hard to write about them without being able to spell their last name and being too lazy to look it up. :-))

Gory Guerrero is the patriarch.

Mando, Eddy, Chavo Sr, and Hector are all his sons that wrestled.

Then there's Chavo Jr, who is Eddy's nephew.

That's all of them I think and they were all great wrestlers. Mando and Chavo Sr were a great tag team themselves. They used to work the old Mid South territory a bunch. Hector was solid but he got stuck with the Lazertron and Goobledygooker gimmicks.

Eddy's probably the best of them all at this point and has been wrestling close to 15 years now.

Personally, I always like Lazertron in the NWA/WCW. Hell, it was 1,000 times better than the Googledygooker idiocy, which would have been a bigger laughing stock at the time except for the brilliant Black Scorpion that Ole Anderson devised. Some one needs to remind me again how guys who have companies fail always get the book back someplace else?

I believe it was on 411, but I just read that the Amazing Red is a Guerrero cousin? Anyone know for sure?

I don't know if there are lots of offshoots in terms of cousins and nephews that have picked up the wrestling tradition (I can't even begin to entangle the complex webs of the Maivia/Anoia/Fatu extended clan from the Pacific islands), but I do have a thumbnail sketch of the "Main Line" of the Guerreros...
The patriach of the clan is Gory Guerrero, who passed the lucha to his sons, who are Chavo, Mando, Hector and Eddy. I believe that's the order from oldest to youngest. There's probably a good 15-20 years between Chavo's birth and that of Eddy's.
I believe there's only 3 years difference between Eddy and his nephew Chavo Jr.
Now, having seen only the 4 sons and Chavo Jr. wrestle, I can tell you they're all excellent. Personally, I loved watching Chavo Sr. in the UWF days, and I got to see lots of Hector's great work as a babyface single in Florida. They were also a hell of a "rudo" team throughout the Southern states in the 80's. Personally,
I think Eddy is the best of the sons, probably followed by Chavo Sr. I think Chavor Jr. is next, or maybe Hector. I hate to put Mando last, but honestly, he's the one I've seen the least of.
Hope this helps!

I am 99.9% sure Red is not a Guerrero. I believe he was born in in New York. And really, would a Guerrero need to be trained by Mikey Whipwreck? He wrestled under a mask in MLW as Fuego Guerrero, so I think that's where the confusion came from.

Thanks, y'all. So they're like the Harts of Mexico? It's always amazing to learn about those extended wrestling families such as the Guerreros.

Yes, I liked Lazertron also. I didn't find out that it was Hector Guerrero until several years after he was gone. Lazertron was always one of my favorite parts of the shows because he was so different and innovative at the time. Even the gimmick and his look MIGHT have worked much better if they had just gotten rid of that ridiculously silly lasertag target on his chest.

Speaking of family trees, as mentioned above...

Someon has REALLY got to untangle the Samoan bloodline. We can do it if we put our heads together! I know that Rock is Rikishi's second cousin, and Jamal is 'Kishi's first cousin, but after that my memory draws a blank.

According to Tenay, Red is a cousin to the SATs.

So, how come they never mention that Chavo's a third generation superstar?

Was I the only one upset that Eddie and Chavo didn't mention LITTLE TIMMY FROM THE ORPHANAGE last night when running off the family names?

I KNOW you all couldn't have forgotten him already

Because not all 3 generations wrestled for the WWF/E.

Because he's still washing Eddie's car...LOL, that was priceless.
