In the wrestling industry, there have been many families to have graced the ring, be it as tag teams, stables, or in seperate generations.
Over the coming weeks, I'm going to analyze in-depth looks at the families that have wrestled in the WWE/WWF, their success, and the legacies left behind.
However, the families included are of that who are blood related, or extended by marital status, so don't expecr E&C, Kane and The Undertaker or The Dudleys.
So without further ado, here is the first family...
The Guerrero family—or Los Guerrero's as they're widely known—are one of the most famous, oldest and successful families to have ever graced a ring.
A wrestling motivated family of Mexican origin, the Guerrero generation started way back in the 1930's, when a young Gory Guerrero laced up his boots and stepped into the squared-circle.
Ever since, many Guerrero's have followed suit, and wherever a Guerrero went, gold followed. Only three have wrestled in WWE, and the success has been no different there...
The most successful of the Guerrero's, Eddie won gold in every promotion he fought in, and nobody could claim he was deprived from championships in WWE.
He is a Grand Slam winner, one of very few to have one everything. His statistics speak for themselves —1 time WWE, 1 United States, 2 Intercontinental, 2 European, and 4 time Tag Team Championship reigns (2 with Chavo Jr, one each with Tajiri and Rey Mysterio).
But his biggest accolade was his induction to WWE's Hall Of Fame. Legend? Viva la Raza!!
Chavo Guerrero Jr, the only active Guerrero in the WWE today, has had his fair share of success across promotions, and his success has only continued.
Chavo Jr won 2 Tag Team Championships with his Uncle Eddie—as aforementioned—but also had a reign as "WWE's" ECW Championship.
But main success has come in the Cruiserweight division, where he's held the gold 4 times.
One reign came ended, however when his dad and manager, Chavo Snr, accidentally fell onto and pinned his son. He retained it for a month.
The Guerrero legacy is very impressive. Combined, the family has held WWE gold 16 times, 15 of which was shared between Eddie and Chavo Jr.
And with Chavo Jr still working for Vince's wrestling empire, the Guerrero name could very well be labeled onto a few more Championships yet.
