A veteran exotico who works all over the world. Began his career in the UWA as an undercard exotico teaming mainly with Pimpinela Escarlata. Got a Welterweight Title shot vs. El Hijo del Santo in 1992, which got about the level of nasty homophobic backlash you'd expect. He'd go on to win the Lightweight Title. After the UWA's closure he headed north and worked a lot of the border cities as well as in the United States. He struggled with addiction around this time, and the date he reached sobriety (June 4, 2003), is tattooed on his back to this day.

His return to mainstream Lucha Libre occured in 2006 when he began a feud with Pimpinela in AAA. The two seemed to be building to a hair match but a freak injury to Cassandro postponed it. The feud never got going even after his return and he soon left the promotion to return to the indy scene which included lots of dates with the touring Lucha VaVoom promotion.

Cassandro openly speaks of being gay and due to his ability to speak fluent English as well as Spanish he has made a name for himself all over the world after making appearences in various media outlets to promote things like Lucha VaVoom and Lucha Libre shows in France, England, etc.

Subject of the 2023 biopic Cassandro, starring Gael García Bernal in the title role.
