Place in History - When it comes to being a rudo, there have been few better than Fuerza Guerrera.  A combination of big bumps, entertaining mannerisms and a talent for carrying even the most hapless technicos to exciting matches, Guerrera has been one of the best for the better part of twenty-five years.  As a young luchador, he created his persona with some influence from the Aztecas and Star Wars.  Within a few years, he was a regular in Arena Mexico and building his reputation as a lightweight.  After establishing himself, Fuerza Guerrera left EMLL to work on the independents and further develop himself.  Upon his return to Arena Mexico in the late 1980s, Fuerza Guerrera was at the top of his game.  While he was a dominant welterweight, holding the top title in that division for more than two years, Fuerza’s feud with Octagon was what truly established him.  When AAA was getting started, bringing in Octagon and Fuerza Guerrera was important.  However, Fuerza was a pivotal veteran who was able to work with all the youngsters.  He teamed with Heavy Metal, Psicosis and, of course, his son Juventud Guerrera; he worked against Hijo Del Santo and Rey Misterio Jr. in many incredible trios matches.  While never a top star in AAA, Fuerza Guerrera was crucial to company’s establishment.  Guerrera had a name and the talent to keep steady work and typically near the top of the cards.  In CMLL, he was still excellent in trios matches, but the crowds were tiring of the old guard.  In AAA, he even worked a program opposite his son.  In IWRG, he, like many other veterans, continued to go strong working a more traditional style with a mixture of other veterans and up-and-comers.  Fuerza Guerrera has a stellar reputation as a rudo who aged like a fine wine.  He worked a fast and exciting style, but also a traditional one, that was a base for a generation of talent technicos in EMLL/CMLL and AAA.  He took classic lucha and found a different way of approaching it, infusing humor in a way that made him stand out.
