Príncipe Negro (Baja California)
One of the most beloved luchadors in Mexicali. He is Co-founder of Arena Nacionalista, current promoter, ring announcer, and occasional referee.
Began to train at the age of 16. He was the first son of Manuel Hernandez to debut as a wrestler. His professional wrestling career began in 1976 in San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora under the name "Pato" Hernandez. Later on he adopted the name of Pluma Blanca. He wrestled under that name for about 8 matches which it seemed to work. Nevertheless his father and his trainer had the idea of adopting the name of Príncipe Negro since he used to wear a sarape and a black fedora with a cross. He took off the lightingvolt for a crown. His first matches were in San Luis Rio Colorado, because he was a lightweight and there were few luchadores in that division in Mexicali. He used to go back and forth with Tury Olivares. Benjamin Mora gave him opportunites all over Baja California and Baja California Sur. He was noticed by Rafael Rebelin has a big draw at a local level. One of his most memorable matches was a tag team match between Septiembre Negro and him against Carlos Plata and Negro Casas.
