He was trained by Cuauhtémoc ' el diablo' Velasco and Pedro Anguiano.

He obtained 10 championships nationals and world championships. Also he gained 64 hair matches and 3 masks.

El Dandy was a mainstay with Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre, having feuds with major stars like Satánico, El Hijo del Santo, and Emilio Charles Jr. He also had a run with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and, in the late 1990s, had a hand in training Amy Dumas, better known as Lita, of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) fame. Dumas also served as Dandy's manager for a time.

During the majority of his career in WCW, Dandy was a rather low-card performer, one of many luchadors hired by the company to add some variety to its programs. Prior to a cruiserweight battle royal at Slamboree '98, Chris Jericho famously insulted several contenders, stating that Dandy was the winner of Lou Ferrigno lookalike contest. Later that year, Dandy was a member of the Latino World Order, a group of Mexican wrestlers led by Eddie Guerrero. Shortly after Guerrero's real-life car accident on New Year's Day, however, the group was forced to disband by the reformed nWo.

On the spring break edition of WCW Monday Nitro on March 22, 1999, Dandy took part in an 8-man tag team bout. Later on in the night, WCW Champion Ric Flair held a random drawing to decide a challenger for his title for the main event. Dandy held the winning number but had a bandaged arm from his earlier match. He instead gave the title shot to a highly popular fellow luchador, Rey Mysterio, Jr., who came close to winning but lost via DQ due to a biased referee in Charles Robinson as well as interference from Arn Anderson.

In 2000, Dandy briefly partnered with Silver King to form Los Fabulosos: the hottest men in Latin America. Stacy Keibler, having recently left The West Hollywood Blondes, managed the team and lead them to their first major victories in WCW.

Throughout his WCW career, however, Dandy was used as a preliminary wrestler and became somewhat of a cult figure after Bret Hart said "Who are you to doubt El Dandy?" during an interview where Gene Okerlund was asking about challengers for Hart's WWE United States Championship. Bret Hart has referred to El Dandy as "a jam up guy" and "a serious professional".

After leaving WCW, he went back to Mexico as part of Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) but left a year later to work as an Independent. In 2004, his match against L.A.
