Notes

Began his career working various stripper type gimmicks before eventually joining up with two other young wrestlers to form Los Barrio Boys where he achieved his first real success in the wrestling business. They feuded with various teams including Los Diabolicos & The Black Family - the latter of which cost Billy his first ever hair loss.

Billy then had the opportunity to work as a masked wrestler named Alfa in 2004 when Antonio Pena tried to create some new stars. The gimmick never really went anywhere and quietly disappeared although for a while it did earn Billy some main event matches.

It was right after the Alfa gimmick ended that the long-running Billy Boy vs. Gran Apache feud began. Billy would bring signs to the ring declaring his love for Fabi Apache (the two had been dating and eventually married + had a son in real life) and naturally her father would object to this. The storyline has had so many twists and turns it would be impossible to explain everything however during their long-running feud Billy has tried many things to try to please Gran Apache including being his friend, hiding under the Alfa mask to win his trust, beating up a stranger who tried to hit on Fabi (Brandon) and proving he was a better wrestler inside the ring. Unfortunately for Billy this led to two straight hair match losses to his father-in-law. The second time he lost his hair was thanks to (unwilling) help from Fabi and this sent Billy into a tailspin. He became very sad and his Barrio Boy partners actually turned on him which eventually led to Billy being committed for psychiatric help. He not only came out a much happier man but around the same time Alfa appeared on the scene again although it was not noted by anyone that Billy had played the role before. Instead this Alfa claimed to be a rookie and begged Gran Apache to train him. He gave in and eventually liked the rookie so much he tried to hook him up with his daughter to get her over that evil Billy Boy character! Of course it was at Verano De Escandalo 2007 where Alfa tore off his mask after his match and stunned the world by reuniting with Fabi. This should have sparked a new chapter in the feud with Gran Apache however it was bad timing as Apache had just gotten hurt on a small show and was out of action for quite some time. When he managed to return the feud with Billy was put on the backburner to focus on the Fabi vs. Mari Apache feud which eventually led to a hair match where the entire Apache family reunited with Billy watching. This left Billy in limbo and his anger seemed to build inside. At Guerra de Titanes 2008 he viciously attacked his wife who was standing up for her father and officially turned rudo for the first time in his career. Throughout 2009 he has continued to torment the Apache family and feuded with Fabi's newest love interest Aero Star.

Billy has certainly come a long way from a green flyer wearing a tiny speedo doing a stripper gimmick to one of the most well-rounded wrestlers and best rudos in AAA. Lots of this can be credited to Gran Apache taking him under his wing which had led to the natural comparison that Billy Boy is the new version of Gran Apache, especially now that he is a rudo. Sadly he also appears to be paralleling his father-in-law career wise as even though Gran Apache was always respected as a fantastic wrestler, he never managed to move up on the cards and was always an opening match act.

Interesting facts:

- Even though the official start to the Billy vs Apache feud over his love for Fabi didn't begin until 2004, they had a short feud when Billy was a Spice Boy in 1999.

- One really obvious loophole in the storyline involving Billy dressing up as Alfa to win over Fabi is AAA actually aired a skit on TV early in the angle where Billy was walking through a large crowd and saw Alfa and Fabi on a date which made him really depressed. AAA never bothered explaining how that was possible if Billy was Alfa all along but one can use their imagination to pretend Billy paid someone to be Alfa for the date knowing the cameras would capture it and throw Gran Apache off his scent.

- Billy, Hijo del Tirantes and Mesias were both arrested in the summer of 2009 for allegedly beating up a fan while on cocaine after a show. Mesias denied having any part in the altercation and said he was just trying to calm the situation down between Billy and the fan. Billy and Tirantes Jr. ended up being officially suspended for two weeks while Mesias wasn't punished.

Billy was assaulted in 2013, suffering a serious wound on one of his hands, which eventually ended his AAA career. A 2013 vignette aired of Billy bringing in a mystery man to gain revenge on the Bizarros for abandoning him, but the story was immediately dropped. (The mystery man's identity was never revealed and may have not been determined when the vignette aired, though the best guess is the plan was for it to be Eterno.) Cuervo took over the onscreen role of Faby Apache's significant other (and later jilted boyfriend) on television, and it came out that those two were actually together in real life at that point. Billy and Faby are said to no longer be together. Billy was promoted as an ex-AAA luchador appearing on a San Luis Potosi show in 2015, but that show was ultimately canceled. It's believed he's healthy and able to wrestle, but has not been spotted back in the ring under that name.
