History: Chavo Jr. is part of a great family tradition. The son of the great Chavo Guerrero, as well as the nephew of Eddie, Chavo Jr. has had a lot to live up to. He began his career wrestling in the Independent circuits, sometimes in Mexico. In 1996, Chavo headed off to New Japan Pro Wrestling, where he earned his name as one of the growing talents in the world. After wrestling in the Super Jr. Heavyweight Tournament, Chavo Jr. opted to come to WCW to work with his uncle Eddie Guerrero, already an established star, and debuted in WCW in May '96.

Chavo's career began to turn when Eddie decided to become his "trainer". Eddie continuously humiliated Chavo, changing his matches and helping Chavo to lose. After a long period of this, Chavo apparently snapped. He began to carry a wooden horse named Pepe, and started calling Eddy "Little Trooper". The two eventually had it out in a hair-vs-hair match that Chavo lost. Seconds later, Chavo shaved his own head. Chavo then began appearing infrequently in other people's matches, and especially took an interest in Stevie Ray and the TV Title he was defending (for his brother) at the time. The two fought it out at Road Wild with an easy victory for Ray.

After a brief feud with the LWO and Billy Kidman, Chavo began having problems with Norman Smiley. The most serious confrontation began at Pepe's "birthday party", when Smiley smashed Chavo through the cake (and the table), then took Pepe back to a wood-shredder. Poor Pepe was then tossed in, right as Chavo arrived. The death of Pepe essentially ended some energy for Chavo, as he lost to Smiley at the next PPV. Chavo seemed to drop in the ratings of WCW afterwards, although he did have another brief feud with Billy Kidman during the Tag-Team Title Tournament. Chavo then faded back to Saturday night shows, rarely appearing on Nitro or Thunder, except for jobber-status. He routinely appeared as a catalogue salesman for a time, trying to sell various items to fellow wrestlers, with little success. He also did some interview segments, questioning numerous stars in the backstage area (while still trying to make a profit). The gimmick earned little heat from the crowd, however, and was later dropped.

Chavo's career was given a recharge in April '00, when Vince Russo and Eric Bischoff returned to take charge, forming the New Blood. Chavo, paired with Hugh Morrus, Van Hammer, and Lash LaRoux, formed a secondary unit that worked for the New Blood, usually unsuccessfully. The group then began protesting the fact that they weren't getting any push, despite their being the 'younger' generation. Eric Bischoff answered their pleas in his own way, when, after Hugh Morrus won a big match, he fired the entire crew. The next week, though, Chavo and the rest returned, calling themselves the Misfits in Action, or M.I.A. for short. Soon, the group began doning military uniforms, and changed their names to suit their personas. Chavo became known as Lieutenant Loco, his first real name change since entering WCW.

Lt. Loco fought the good fight along with his teammates in the M.I.A., Captain/General Rection (Morrus), Corporal Cajun (LaRoux), Major Stash (Hammer), and G.I. Bro (Booker T). They battled against the Filthy Animals, a branch of the New Blood, for a few months, fighting in and out of arenas. In June '00, Lt. Loco entered a Three-Way match for the Cruiserweight Title, against the Disco Inferno (part of the Filthy Animals) and the reigning champion, Daffney. It was a wild match, with varying degrees of involvement from the other stables, but in the end, Chavo won out, getting the roll-up and the WCW Cruiserweight belt, his first major title reign. Chavo would defend the belt against the Disco Inferno at the Great American Bash '00, and once again, the Filthy Animals & M.I.A. became involved. Despite "Pops" (Rection's father) getting ko'ed during the battle, Lt. Loco got his Tornado DDT, retaining his Cruiserweight Championship.

The feud with the Filthy Animals continued to focus around Lt. Loco, as many of the Animals were Cruiserweights. Juventud Guerrera became the next one to take a serious run at Chavo, and the two decided to face off at Bash at the Beach '00, with both stables banned from ringside. This stipulation didn't help, as both groups came out (in masks) at different points to interfere in the bout. During the match, Guerrera did manage to get his Juvi Driver, but only got a 2 count on the pinfall. Lt. Loco then got his Tornado DDT to come out victorious. A few weeks later, however, Loco lost his title to Lance Storm, a man who seemed to collect all of the titles. This led to a small war between M.I.A. and the Canadian contingent, but it didn't last long.

The M.I.A. stable continued to battle in smaller feuds throughout the next month or so, battling against the Canadians, 3 Count, and other groups. In October '00, Lt. Loco & Cpl. Cajun (LaRoux) managed to defeat Jindrak & O'Haire for the Tag-Team Titles. But the Commissioner at the time, Mike Sanders, came out and said that they had to defend the belts immediately, allowing Jindrak & O'Haire to roll them up and win the belts back. MIA then had a small war with the Natural Born Thrillers. But a dissatisfaction was slowly coming out inside Chavo, and he became the first guy to start breaking away from the MIA pack. He eventually went back to his own name, turning heel by attacking various members of the MIA. This caused a minor feud between Chavo & General Rection that never went to a PPV. However, Chavo did get in some psychological warfare on the General, turning AWOL (the newest MIA member) against the group. The M.I.A. was later dissolved, mainly because of Chavo's actions.

Chavo, meanwhile, spent some time climbing back up the WCW singles bracket, finally getting his shot against Mike Sanders. With some aid from Sanders' enemy, Ernest Miller, Chavo came through, taking the title for the second time. Chavo then started to get challenges from "Sugar" Shane Helms, who believed that it was his time to be the champion. They fought in an epic match to open WCW Sin at the beginning of 2001, with a flurry of high-risk maneuvers. Helms seemed to have control at the end, getting his Nightmare on Helms Street maneuver. But Chavo kicked out, then reversed a second attempt to get a modified Brain Buster, pinning the man to retain his title. The next month was spent feuding with the Filthy Animals again, as Rey Mysterio Jr became the next Cruiserweight in line for a shot at the belt. In a furious fight at Superbrawl '01, Chavo showed that he could still cheat his way to victory, hitting Mysterio with a surprise chair shot on the outside. Guerrero then got Mysterio back in the ring and Brainbustered him for the victory.

Earlier in the night at Superbrawl, there was a Cruiserweight Contenders 6-man match, which had Billy Kidman as the top favorite. But Kidman was taken out, by orders from Chavo. "Sugar" Shane Helms took his place in the brawl, getting the win, and making him the #1 Contender once again, much to Chavo's dismay. The match was scheduled for WCW Greed '01, and it turned into another major battle. This time, though, Helms was the victor, reversing into his Vertibreaker to get the win and the title. Guerrero worked to get the belt back in the next few weeks leading up to the Season Finale of WCW, and took on Helms once more that night. But Helms once again hit the Vertibreaker, and Guerrero ended his time in the Turner-run WCW titleless.

Guerrero Jr was later announced as one of the first WCW wrestlers to sign with the WWF, but he did not appear for a time, instead training in smaller federations like the UWF while other WCW wrestlers began to "invade" the WWF. Guerrero's first major appearance came in July '01, when he joined other WCW and ECW wrestlers in the ring while Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley and Paul Heyman bragged about their Invasion. Guerrero made his first major appearance in the WWF on the Sunday Night Heat before the Invasion PPV, wrestling against Scotty Too Hotty. Surprisingly, Guerrero got the upset, taking down Scotty and getting the first win of the night for the ECWCW team.
