Notes

Durango Kid was one of the primary trainers at the New Japan Inoki Dojo in Los Angeles.

He wrestled as Fuego in a tournament to gain entry to the 2006 NJPW Super Junior tournament, and stayed as Fuego thru the tournament. After proving himself on the tour, he was invited to wrestle with NJPW again in the future; Durango Kid removed his mask voluntarily in order to compete under his usual identity for New Japan.

Began working regularly in Mexico in 2008, notably several shows for Ultimo Dragon and later IWRG.

He wrestled as Black Dragon on the return show for Juventud Guerrera's Super X promotion on August 15, 2009 in 3 way dance for the Copa XL, against Angelico and Juventud.

On July 26, 2009 he started with CMLL as a lower/midcard rudo, sporting a new mask. He spend the next year and a half as an early match rudo. Durango had a slight rivalry with fellow martial artist Sensei, but it never got much attention. When Durango's brother Histeria II and others joined CMLL as Los Invasores, there was periodic talk about Durango being added to the group, but it never came to fruition.

Durango disappeared from CMLL at the end of February 2011. A few months later, SuperLuchas explained Durango Kid's firing was tied to Mistico's WWE deal. Durango has used his US contacts to set up a WWE tryout for CMLL wrestlers, notably Mistico and Diamante. Mistico left CMLL before he could be punished, but Diamante was suspended for a few weeks and revealed Durango Kid's role in the tryouts, costing Durango Kid his spot.
