Notes

A veteran who is well-traveled. Began his career as a mini and with the permission of Oro was allowed to take on the Orito gimmick. Joined the CMLL ranks in the summer of 1992 after the AAA split took place and CMLL was in need of restocking their mini's division. Won the tournament to crown a new CMLL Mini's Title over Felinito but lost it to fellow tecnico Ultimo Dragoncito a few months later. Was a regular in the mini's division for many years although CMLL never really emphasized their mini's division during that time period. Began a feud with Felinito in late 1996 which appeared headed towards a mask match at some point.

However, the two instead took their feud to AAA in early 1997 with Orito becoming Super Nova and Felinito taking on the role of Mach 1. Joined a group of fellow high flyers to form a new version of the Space Cadets group which constantly stole the show with their insane highspots and fantastic matches against Los Rudos De La Galaxia.

Another shake-up in the world of Lucha Libre effected his career as in the fall of 1997 he was part of the mass exodus from AAA. He wound up working in Promo Azteca as Oro Jr., this time in the regular-sized division. His debut appearance in the promotion was actually a run-in while wearing his Super Nova mask but at the urging of Super Calo he tore off the mask to reveal his new persona.

Around this time he also had the distinction of being one of the few luchadores to work both WWF and WCW shows. After working in the WWF as Super Nova in the spring, he worked a dark match on WCW's Nitro show and then again on the Festival de Lucha show in Texas. There were also rumors in early 1998 via Super Luchas that he was headed into ECW along with Super Crazy and Venum Black but nothing ever came of those rumors.

Ended up working out of Arena Naucalpan and lost his mask to Dr. Cerebro in the summer of 1998. Began working under the fake real name of Mike Segura although was mostly referred to as "Suicida" for his suicidal dives. Became an IWRG regular and was one of the most popular wrestlers on the roster for a long time. Often teamed with Panterita/Freelance who, was nicknamed "Suicidita" due to his resemblance to Mike Segura.

Had had a falling out with IWRG over working an unapproved show in June 2007. Segura was suspended along with Dr. Cerebro, Trauma I & Trauma II. Eventually the suspension was lifted and he returned to action under a mask as Aeroman which might be IWRG's form of punishment as he is nowhere near as popular under the mask as he was without the hood. While the promotion has never come out to officially say it is him under the mask, it's pretty much common knowledge as the crowd chants "Suicida" during his matches.

Returned to wrestling as the unmasked Mike Segura in May 2009, and lost his hair a couple months later. Resumed his IWRG career as a popular midcard high flyer. In October 2010, a new Aeroman appeared. Segura wrestled on and off in IWRG until leaving the promotion again in May 2011. He's appeared on IWL and Arena Neza shows instead.
