|Abismo Negro (Black Abyss)|
Abismo Negro was a mainstay of AAA, usually a rudo in the biggest matches and often part of the some version of the Vipers. Abismo Negro actually started his major promotion career in CMLL as Furor, but jumped to AAA in it's earliest days. Before he was Abismo Negro, he was the first man in AAA to use the name Winners, a female favorite tecnico who lost his mask to Super Calo. The connection between the two characters is not publicly acknowledged, and Abismo Negro has become the much more well known character.
Abismo Negro was known as "El Rey del Martinete" due to his frequent use of banned piledrivers moves. While the martinete is more often broken up than executed, Abismo has taken out opponents with the move many times. Abismo was also frequently seen with an aerosol can and a lighter, allowing him to blow fire during this entrance and for victories.
Abismo Negro has been one of AAA's all purpose rudos, used to make whichever tecnico he works with look a little better. Besides his Vipers membership, Abismo was a major part of LLL during the peak of it's existence. Abismo teamed a lot with his mini, Mini Abismo Negro to feud with other mascot tag teams (most notably Mascara Sagrada AAA & Mascarita Sagrada 2000.) Abismo was far less successful as a tecnico.
As a representative of AAA, Abismo's appeared in TNA (during their "World X Cup" period) and worked for Japanese groups (including NOAH). Abismo Negro often appears on the morning television program Vida TV. He appeared a kind of a judge for talent contests on the show.
Abismo's biggest rival was Latin Lover. The two have not only wrestled against each other often, gotten into fights on non-AAA variety TV shows and teased mask vs hair matches. Latin's appears to be on the outside of AAA at the moment and any final match between the two went stalled. Abismo battled drug problems thru his career, and missed long stretches of recent years while dealing with them.
Abismo Negro spent 2008 and 2009 feuding with the Vipers, after they kicked him out of the group for not being around enough when they needed him. The Vipers, now led by Mr. Niebla, created a new Abismo Negro ([[Black Abyss) to replace him. This feud was set to climax at TripleMania, at first in a Abismo vs Niebla direct mask match, and later a match which would pit Abismo versus all the Vipers, but Abismo again started missing shows and was dropped by the company. AAA tested out using Black Abyss actually as Abismo Negro on some spot shows and, but the idea never made it to TV.
Mr. Niebla jumped back to CMLL, so when Abismo was finally brought back (after at least one false start), the feud changed to a direct rivalry with his replacement Black Abyss. Again, the feud seemed headed to a mask match at TripleMania. On the last show Abismo worked, he lost to Black Abyss by martinete in the Rey de Reyes tournament to add more to the feud.
Abismo Negro died March 22, 2009 near El Rosario, Sinaloa. He apparently drowned in a river.
