Biography

He is currently living in Xalapa, Veracruz, México, wrestling at the local arena (Arena Xalapa) and was working as the official trainer there at last report. He trains local stars such as Samuray, Guerrero del Infierno, Perro Mocho Jr. and so on.

On weekends he travels to Mexico to train a group of wrestlers along with Ultimo Dragon, at the Toryumon gym. These include Turbo (his best known pupil) and others like Black Thunder.

He was also a part-time trainer for the Chikara Wrestle Factory in Philadelphia.

Rumors at the time said Skayde was retiring due to health problems (knees and ligaments), thus explaining his surprising mask loss to Mistico. There appeared to be no build to the mask match. The match itself was surprising, but the result was not; Mistico's win was around the peak of his popularity.

Since the mask loss, he's continued to appear sporadically in both Mexico and the US. Skayde's tended to be on shows that slip thru the radar throughout the career, so it's tough to exactly determine a drop off. As of late 2009, he did seem to disappear from Perros del Mal and other high end Mexico indies, often with Skayde Jr. taking his place. At the same time, he has made appearances for both the CHIKARA and Dragon Gate USA promotions in the US.

The exact relationship between Skayde and Skayde Jr. is still unknown.

Today Skayde it is recognized as one of the ten best wrestlers trainers in the world and as one of the hundred best pro wrestlers in the world by the PWI in position # 201 (2004), #189 (2005), #385 (2006), and # 415 (2007)
