This article is to the original Canelo Casas. To the others wrestlers that uses the name check Canelo Casas (disambiguation).
Heavy Metal is an upper card tecnico in CMLL. He's usually allied with his brothers Negro Casas and Felino. As with other CMLL upper tecnicos, he doesn't really have any ongoing feuds of his own, but just opposes the various forces of evil on a weekly basis.
Heavy is a regular relatively recent jump from AAA. Sources say Metal was angered about Konnan being allowed to return to the promotion, feeling he (and others) had worked hard to rebuild the promotion after Konnan had left the company and raided it for talent. When Antonio Pena made it clear Konnan would be a part of AAA, Metal left, jumping first to IWRG (where he still also wrestles) and then to CMLL.
Metal showed up in CMLL as a very muscular wrestler, which seemed to diminish his work in the ring. In recent months, he's cut his weight down and looked like a much improved wrestler.
Metal appears to be very proud to be champion; he always wore the IWRG Intercontinental Heavyweight Title and IWRG Intercontinental Trios Championship title to the ring, even in CMLL matches, when he held those titles. This lends credence to the idea that he no longer holds the UWA World Junior Light Heavyweight Championship (and maybe it's the belt Silver Star is using); if Metal had a championship, he certainly wouldn't keep it a secret.
