Koreano started in CMLL DF's rings as a member of the second Guapos U class. He turned on his partners during a match and left/was expelled from the group (depending on who's side you take), joining up instead with the rival Pandilla Guerrera.

A rudo undercarder for CMLL, Apocalpsis probably still is better known under his previous identity; both occupied the same early card position, but the character hasn't made television much. The Apocalispis gimmick debuted as Damian 666's rookie partner in 2005's Gran Alternativa match, losing in the first round to the eventual winner, and he's not advanced from that position yet. Koreano was a member of Pandilla Guerrera, but likely since they don't wish to acknowledge this is the same man, Apocalipsis is not part of the group.

The 2005 regimmicking appears to be the highlight of his career. Apocalipsis made it to the tercera of some shows in 2005, but has sank back down even though he seems to have improved as a worker over the years. He was kept out of action for a while after suffering a serious shoulder injury courtesy of a Metalico dive in early 2008. Since his return, he's an opening match wrestler. His name turns up about once a month, but never out of that first match. Apocalipsis is at the sort of level where he could leave CMLL tomorrow, and it might take quite a while for even the closest followers to notice if no announcement is made. He's very much on the fringes of the roster, most likely either doomed to a fade out, but probably hoping for one a feud to drop his mask.
