Eduardo Gory Guerrero Llanes better known in the world of wrestling as Eddie Guerrero is regarded as one of the greatest in-ring performers of all time. He is member of the Guerrero-Llanes Dynasty being the youngest son of Gory Guerrero.
Eddie Guerrero was born on October 9, 1967 in El Paso, Texas, even tough some sources say he was born in Ciudad Juarez where he began his early days as a professional wrestler. Before folling in the footsteps of his father and older brothers Chavo, Mando, and Hector, Eddie practiced collegiate wrestling.
Debut and Early Career
Eddie was trained by his father Gory, and his cousin Javier Llanes. Several sources say his debut was on 1987 at Auditorio Municipal de Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua in a tag team match with [[[El Matemático]] aganist Flama Roja and El Vikingo. However, his in ring career should be since at least 1986. Javier Llanes stated that Eddie debuted at Arena Internacional, in Colonia Chaveña in Ciudad Juárez where all Guerreros and Llanes debuted. His debut in Arena Mexico was on September 5, 1986. He went in a tag team match with Mogur against Ari Romero and Guerrero Negro. In early days he went as Gory Guerrero Jr.
His first rivalry was against Ari Romero, they went in a lucha de apuestas that ended in Guerrero's first victory. During late 1980s and early 1990s, Guerrero had hair wins against Negro Casas, Lobo Rubio, La Fiera, and Babe Face.
La Nueva Pareja Atómica
In 1987 with Hijo del Santo comprised the short-lived Nueva Pareja Atómica as their fathers did. Box y Lucha proclaimed the new Pareja Atómica were Perro Aguayo and Villano III, however Lucha Libre promoted the heirs of the original Pareja Atómica, the lucha libre legends Santo & Gory Guerrero.
The First Máscara Mágica
The Guerrero brothers made tours in Mexico occasionally, during those days they could be seen in Arena Mexico. Chavo, Mando, and Eddie were seen in all the country when the television came in. The Guerreros kept appearing until EMLL for some reason decided to mask them along with several others. Hector Guerrero was repackaged as Lassertron, Mando was El Psicopata, and Eddie became Máscara Mágica on July 21, 1992. He was introduced by the lucha libre magazines as a Mexican-American wrestler with a background sports in Olympic wrestling. Eddie felt uncomfortable with the gimmick and in November of that year, he signed in with AAA unmasking voluntarily in his debut
In AAA the Nueva pareja Atómica reunited becoming a great draw by 1993. This tag team did not last for long, they split when Guerrero made his rudo turn and joined Love Machine to become the fearsome Pareja del Terror also known as Los Gringos Locos.
Black Tiger II
1993 was also a year of opportunities for him in Japan. He was hired in New Japan Pro Wrestling, but he had to wear a mask once again. On August 8, 1993 at the Ryogoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan Jushin Liger retained the IWGP Jr. Championship against Wild Pegasus. Suddenly, Black Tiger appeared, but not the same who was the nemesis of Tiger Mask and Liger in the last, now was Eddie Guerrero.
