Notes

Currently a promising early match rudo for CMLL.

Turned up just before his brother Puma King in 2006, and the two teamed or wrestled each other in Mexico City indies. Both took their act to IWRG, where they started low on the card but moved up a bit during the stay. Jumped to CMLL in spring of 2008. At first, Puma worked on the rudo side and Tiger on the tecnico. A few months in, Puma convinced his brother that they should be teaming and not fighting, and they formed an opening match tag team. For young wrestlers, they've made some steady progress, but are still in the opening match.

Both Tiger Kid and Puma King were originally assumed to be sons of Felino, since it was well known they were part of the Casas family and they're using the cat characters. Felino has since said they're not his sons, and Tiger Kid and Puma King have explained they've taken the identities to honor their favorite uncle. In SuperLuchas #367, Felino revealed he was indeed their father and had been lying so the kids would be forced to get succeed on their own merits, not based on being his son.

The duo is part of the extended Peste Negra group because of their family connections, but don't team up due to the vast difference in positioning.

Tiger Kid has sometimes been called "Kid Tiger", or "Tiger Kidd", but this spelling is most common.
