Angel de Oro made his CMLL in-ring debut in 2008, and is a rapidly rising tecnico high flyer. One of many Laguna based wrestlers to find success in CMLL since the late 00s, Oro has been notable for winning or placing well in many rookie tournaments. Oro can perform spectacular moves, but his greater trait is the reliability of his moves; Oro is one of the more consistent performs of his age range. CMLL seems to be building him as a younger, more aerial version of La Mascara. Both use classic lucha submission holds as their trademark finishers, and neither are the first men to use their names in CMLL. This Angel de Oro was preceded by Angel de Oro (Original)

Angel de Oro started out in Laguna arenas, most notable Arena Olimpico Laguna de Gomez Palacio. He worked against Guerrero Inca in almost all of his early matches. Inca was actually Oro's brother, the future Angel de Plata. Oro and Plata made their CMLL debuts at CMLL Dos Leyendas, 2008. They did not have a match, but posed with Hector Garza before his hair match with El Hijo del Perro Aguayo. There was actually a third Angel (de Bronce?) with Garza, who's existence is mentioned whenever Oro's debut is retold, but never appeared again. In addition, one of the Angels (believed to be Plata) suffered an injury soon after, postponed the group's debut.

Angel de Oro's in ring debut was in late summer '08. He and Plata joined up with Angel Azteca Jr. to form Los Angeles Celestiales, a segunda/tercera trios team battling the likes of Guerreros Tuareg, trading wins and losses without going anywhere. Angel de Oro's singles surge started with a surprise mask win over Fabian el Gitano in June of 2010, and really took off when he won the 2011 Reyes del Aire. Angel de Oro was split off from his teammates, and united with Diamante & Rush to win the Mexican National Trios Championship. The championship and the reign did not amount to much, but spotlighted the three as future stars of the company. Oro also won the long Forjando un Idolo tournament, participated in various tournaments, and challenged Dragon Rojo Jr. for the CMLL World Middleweight Championship. Oro started of the next year by winning the 2012 Reyes del Aire, against a slightly tougher field than the year before.

Oro does not have a dedicated rival or trio at the moment, but is clearly in the future plans of the company.
