Laguna based luchador rudo since 1982. He was trained by Héctor López and continued with Halcón Suriano and La Sombra and spent four years to become a professional wrestler. His debut was on March, 1982, he went in a tag team match with Estrella Azul against El Canalla and Mano Blanca. Began under the name of Latino as a técnico enmascarado, however he made the rudo turn and stayed on that side for the rest of his career. His time as enmascarado was short-lived, lost his mask barely two months after his debut. Nevertheless, that loss did not affect his career; he made a rudo turn and he enjoyed it and felt more comfortable without the mask.

Used the name of Cavernario Galindo Jr. with the permission of Rodolfo Galindo, but he previously wrestled as El Gran Cosaco for about a year until he received the Copyright approval to use the Cavernario name.

Well known for his rudo style and a fan favorite. In despite of being a lightweight wrestler, he was able to raise in the ranks and to go against much heavier opponents. Had memorable matches against Rubén Juárez, Fabuloso Blondy, Rick Patterson, Gigante Silva, and more.
