Profile

Presumably either a protege or relative of Babe Rap, who originally used this gimmick. Monterrey/Nuevo Leon wrestler who worked dark matches on AAA tapings in the area. Came to DF to try out for AAA in the summer of 2009, but was talked into trying out for CMLL instead and made it. CMLL already had a Principe at the time, so they changed this one's name to Diamante. Joins a big of new early match wrestlers for CMLL as a tecnico. Zoomed up CMLL cards in 2010, winning his first title in 2011. Featured in new/young starts in 2011 and 2012, usually finishing well but not winning. Continued moving up the cards as CMLL emphasized it's younger wrestlers, but seemed to lose the interest the promotion originally had in him and newer guys have already leaped past him. Switched look dramatically in mid-2012, to a silver/black look obviously supposed to resemble El Santo (though both he and the promotion both strongly disagree there is any resemblance), but the new look did not bring a lot of new success. Surprisingly won the vacant Occidente Heavyweight Championship over Misterioso Jr., but lost in his first defense.

Interesting fact: Diamante's current mask was made by Hooligan.
