Notes

Exciting rookie who took off with the creation of the UWA and cemented his status as a legendary name by being the first person to lose his mask to El Santo in the Palacio De Los Deportes. He followed it up by losing his hair to Santo less than a month later in the same building. Still had some name value in Mexico and ended up being asked over to New Japan Pro Wrestling for a feud with the original Tiger Mask whom he lost his mask to... except this time while wrestling as The Masked Hurricane. Word of this eventually found it's way back to Mexico and certain people weren't so thrilled. This effectively ended his working relationship with the UWA and he was mainly a local wrestler in Leon from that point forward. Also became the promotor of all shows at the Domo de la Feria in Leon, a position which he still holds to this day. Having that type of power has allowed him to participate in several angles such as saving his son from beatings and even putting his hair on the line both as a second and a wrestler in a match with two other referees.
