A remarkable unknown wrestler, given he lost his mask in 1978's EMLL Anniversary show. A bio explains his lack of Mexican history: he was actually a Guatemalan luchador who feuded with Mexicans when they came into his country and spent most of his career in Central and South American outside of a major feud with Sangre Chicana in Mexico.

Dragon Rojo Jr. was billed as the grandson of this Dragon Rojo to explain his name change from Diamante Negro, which also happened to tie in to a pre-produced animated movie. Negro/Rojo had noted at other times that he'd make in to CMLL without any family connections, and it's believed the grandfather/grandson relationship is a worked one.
