Kato Kung Lee also briefly used this name
Valiente is midcard CMLL wrestler known for his dare devil moonsaults and other flying moves. He's very reminiscent of Super Astro, who was the wrestler which inspired Valiente to become one. Like Super Astro, Valiente is a heavy set wrestler far more agile than he looks.
Valiente's actually a lot older than the similar high flyers at his position. Valiente started his career in the mid 90s, but could never beyond working small independent shows and grew frustrated. Valiente gave up his lucha libre career for a few years, but was convinced to give it another try, this time within the CMLL training school. Valiente got booked on CMLL cards, but could not move past the opening matches. 2007 was Valiente's break thru year, with a notable performance in the February Reyes del Aire match and winning a similar cibernetico on the May Toryumon show. Those matches were enough to nudge Valiente up another spot on the card, just far enough to get some TV exposure, and his risky but perfectly executed dives quickly grew a fanbase.
Quickly after he found success, Valiente gave permission to two cousins to use his names. Valiente Jr. and Hijo de Valiente did not impress as much as the original. After over a year of being allowed to use those names, Valiente took them back (presumed on request of CMLL), though luchadors by those names turn up on rare occasions.
Valiente's trademark move is his double jump blind springboard moonsault to the floor.
