Flash is a young CMLL midcard wrestler. He's originally from Oaxaca, though not much is known about his pre-CMLL career. In the old El Halcon Net magazine, Flash said he was working as a dental assistant when he moved to Mexico City.

Flash's been working in the promotion as far back as 2006, where he was occasionally spotted working unadvertised pre-show matches. He slowly moved up to being actually on the lineups, quickly moving in the segunda/tercera mix, where he's been since.

Flash stood out because his speed (as you'd expect from his name), his acrobatic style, and his nifty leg trip cradle La Flashina.

Flash got his first real push in 2008, teaming to Stuka Jr. to win a 16 man tournament for the vacant Arena Coliseo Tag Team Championship, then retaining the titles in a rematch versus Euforia & Nosferatu. They haven't done much with the tag team or the titles since the end of 2008, and Stuka Jr. seems to be used at a slightly higher level than Flash, but the championships are still mentioned and seen from time to time.

On November 19, 2009, CMLL announced Flash would be changing his name to Fuego, complete with a new mask. The Flash character's look started as a direct copy of the DC Comic characters, though he started changing the colors and design as time went on. Still, with CMLL previously changing other wrestlers names so they could control the licensing rights, it was only a surprise it took this long for the name to change.

In September and October 2023, he wrestled as Pelon Encapuchado, a character based on the Pelon Pelo Rico candy, as part of a Hershey-CMLL sponsorship deal. It seemed specific to his appearances in Arena México, as he worked as Fuego for a September show in Ciudad Neza.
