Professional wrestling career

The wrestler who would become most known as Arkangel made his profesional wrestling debut in 1985, using the ring name "Mr. Cid", an enmascarado (masked) character partially inspired by El Cid, an 11th century Castilian nobleman.[4] On June 8, 1988 Mr. Cid teamed with Pantera II to win the Naucalpan Tag Team Championship in a tournament final against Convoy and Perverso. The team did not last long, with a storyline break up that led to a feud between the two men. On September 4, 1988 Pantera II defeated Mr. Cid in a Luchas de Apuesta, mask vs. mask match, forcing Mr. Cid to unmask.[4] A week later Pantera II and Carnelo Casas defeated Mr. Cid and Bestia Verde in another Luchas de Apuesta match, this time with Mr. Cid and Bestia Verde having their hair shaved off after the loss.[4] In 1990 Mr. Cid teamed with Canelo Casas to win the Naucalpan Tag Team Championship once more, holding it until some time in 1991.

Arkangel

In June 1991 Mr. Cid changed ring characters, becoming Arkangel de la Muerte, a rudo (heel or "bad guy") character with religious undertones. As Arkangel he won the Naucalpan Tag Team Championship for a third time, this time while teaming with Guerrero de la Muerte who became a regular partner for Arkangel in the following years. The team would also hold the Districto Federal Tag Team Championship at some point in the first half of the 1990s.[5] They would also team with El Felino to hold the Districto Federal Trios Title in 1991, losing the title to Los Metalicos (Oro, Plata and Bronce).[6] By the mind 1990s the "de la Muerte" tag team had broken up with Arkangel focusing on singles competition instead. On September 25, 1998 Arkangel defeated El Torero for the Mexican National Welterweight Championship, bringing the title back to Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) for the first time in five years.[7] Over the next 178 days Arkangel would successfully defend the title against Máscara Mágica, El Torero, Astro Rey, Jr. and Pantera before losing the title to Astro Rey, Jr. on March 22, 1999.[7][8] Five months later Arkangel won the CMLL World Welterweight Championship from Super Delfin on a show in Kawasaki, Japan.[9] Arkangel defended the title several times, both in Mexico and Japan before losing the belt to Nosawa in January, 20001 ending his title reign after at least 875 days.[10] In 2004 Arkangel held the Districto Federal Welterweight Championship for a short period of time before losing the title to Ludwig Star.[11]

In 2004 Arkangel de la Muerte became one of the founding members of a group called Pandilla Guerrera (Spanish for "Gang of Warriors"), a sub group of the top Rudo group in CMLL, Los Guerreros del Infierno (Spanish for "the Infernal Warriors"). The Pandilla Guerrera group consisted of undercard wrestlers, teaming together in the hopes of improving their position on the card. When the group only saw limited success by the association with Los Guerreros del Infierno they decided to break away from them in 2007. Arkangel, along with Nitro, Doctor X, Hooligan, Loco Max and Skándalo formed a group called Rebeldes del Desierto (Rebels of the Desert), later renamed Guerreros Tuareg (Tuareg warriors). Arkangel is the co-leader of the group along with Nitro. On October 18, 2009 Arkangel was one of 12 wrestlers who put his mask on the line in a 12-man Luchas de Apuestas cage match. He was the ninth person to escape the cage keeping his mask safe, the final saw Pólvora pin Tigre Blanco to unmask him.[12]
