He may not be remembered as much as he should be, but in his day Cyclone Negro was a very good heel and one of the more successful Hispanic wrestlers of all time. Negro was from Venezuela, and the barrel chested brawler found success throughout the territories across the United States as well as Japan and Australia. To this day, many wrestlers have named Cyclone as an influence and though he was not a WWE performer, many stars who competed there tangled with the Venezuelan in main events across the U.S.
