Career Highlights


  • 1992: Rene Guajardo passed away..


Tamalie (via the WCMB) wrote: In 1990 the UWA, at the time one of Mexico’s major promotions, sent Rene Guajardo to Europe to wrestle for Otto Wanz and the CWA in Austria and Germany. Rene had been retired since 1982 and was working in the office for the UWA. The primary reason for Rene working in Europe was to scout talent for the promotion. He ended up bringing Chris Benoit, Owen Hart, and Too Cold Scorpio to the UWA after meeting them on this tour. During the tour Rene worked under the gimmick name of Indio Guajardo. Thus Rene and Indio Guajardo are the same person and that is the reason why.
