He was born in 1955 in Mexico City and was trained by Diablo Velazco, Villano I and Felipe Ham Lee. He debuted in 1974 and wrestled under the name of El Magnifico or The Magnificent. He wrestled mostly in the Pavillion Azteca promotion, which later became the AWWA. He is said to have captured the AWWA World Middleweight Championship from Ojo de Tigre during his stay in the promotion, though the dates of his reign are unknown. When he joined EMLL, he vacated the title.
He started making appearances for EMLL in June 1986, though he was mostly a midcarder. He feuded with Sangre Chicana in 1988 and lost a hair vs hair match to him during that time.
In 1990, he started wrestling under the name of El Justiciero which means Justice. He wore black and silver with a mask that had similar teardrop eyes to El Hijo del Santo. Even with the character change, he seems to have stuck around the middle to lower end of the card. He was often matched with the likes of Comando Ruso, El Hijo Del Gladiador, Vulcano and others.
On May 29th, 1993, he captured the mask of Esmeralda Drago and on May 29th, 1994, he won the mask of Drako, who was the brother of Negro Navarro. He got revenge on Sangre Chicana at some point in 1994, taking his hair in Nuevo Laredo. He feuded with Felino in early October 1994 and they met in a mask vs mask match on October 28th, 1994. The match took place in front of 12,000 fans and was one of Justiciero's few EMLL main events. Felino unmasked Justicero after submitting him to a reverse figure-four leglock. The match did not do much for his career as he stayed in the same midcard position throughout his EMLL run before leaving in mid-1996.
While for many luchadors, this might be their last hurrah, El Justiciero had a solid career on the independents. He won three straight hair matches vs Rey Pirata, Mr. Mexico and Andy Barrow from 2000 to 2001. His son, Magnifico, also debuted as a wrestler during this time. He lost his hair to Mascara Ano 2000 on December 2nd, 2002, but then made up for it by taking the hairs of Anticristo, Negro Navarro and Mano Negra from 2002-2003. He lost his hair for the last time on January 19th, 2003 against Fuerza Guerrera.
According to our records, since 2013, he has went on a 10 hair vs hair match winstreak, defeating the likes of Mano Negra (for the 2nd time), El Signo, El Hijo del Gladiador and Jaque Mate, amongst others. The last hair vs hair result we have for him is a October 18th, 2014, victory against Jeque.
