Grew to fame in AAA and was one of many luchadors who ended up underutilized in WCW, though mostly as the masked Ciclope. Reinvented himself in his post WCW career, best known as a member of various Familia de Tijuana combination. In CMLL, Halloween's was an upper midcarder rudo, relying on brawling, famous WWE moves, and his partner Damian 666 in the ring. Halloween's also a member of Perros del Mal, joining early on, and later rejoining the group on the independent scene in 2009.

While most of his Ciclope career in WCW fits with the luchador rank and file pattern of occasional great matches but rarely great achievements, one of his days not as Ciclope was has an interesting sidenote. At WCW Slamboree '98, Halloween wrestled in a cruiserweight #1 battle royal as unknown El Grio. Meanwhile, Ciclope also participated and won the battle royal, only to reveal himself to actually be the returning Dean Malenko, seeking (and gaining) revenge on Chris Jericho.

In his December 2, 2005 hair match with Universo 2000, Halloween took a tombstone for the loss. That's the storyline explanation for his absence, but it appeared as if Halloween also got knee surgery at the same time. Halloween made one more appearance in CMLL following his injury, bandaged and in a wheel cheer, selling his injuries. Halloween also talked about retirement in a late December 2005 interview with Box Y Lucha, but was back regularly in the ring by Spring. Returned to CMLL in September of 2006, rejoining the Perros del Mal faction. Won the Mexican National Trios Championship with Mr. Aguila and Damian 666, but soon wanted out of CMLL and left in August 2007.

Halloween returned to AAA, teaming up with Xtreme Tiger and Nicho el Millonario in a new "Familia de Tijuana" Stable. Nicho didn't last, but the group got some traction as a midcard extreme rudo faction, peaking with Halloween and Extreme Tiger winning the AAA World Tag Team Championship. Their title reign was not particularly impressive. Battling personal issues, Halloween missed scheduled appearances and eventually showed up on final time to drop the AAA tag titles on October 1, 2008.

Completely disappeared from the wrestling scene for half a year before resurfacing with his old Perros del Mal friends as part of their ongoing promotion.
