Brazo de Plata was one of the greatest figures in lucha libre in recent decades, being one of the UWA‘s benchmarks at El Toreo de Cuatro Caminos in the 80s. Super Porky worked for the best companies in the world such as UWA, CMLL, Lucha Libre AAA, AJPW and NJPW. In addition, he had appearances in WWE, and even dabbled in the world of MMA. In mid-2016 he had his last presentations with the CMLL at the Arena Mexico and Arena Coliseo de Guadalajara.
In February, Brazo de Plata with Psycho Clown signed to join the roster of Masked Republic‘s Legends of Lucha Libre.
