El Oriental debuted on October 23, 1992 at 19 years old, in Arena Azteca Budokan. He debuted using the Oriental gimmick, and has been up until now. From his debut up until the late 1990's he worked mainly in the Nezahualcoyotl area. By the late 1990's he began working in CMLL. He feuded with Virus for the Mexican National Lightweight Championship. After about a year and a half or two years with CMLL he left the promotion. After his departure he jumped to AAA in 1999. He debuted on AAA' Guerra de Titanes teaming with La Parka, Hector Garza, and Mascara Sagradaand they defeated El Hijo del Solitario, Abismo Negro, Electroshock, and Blue Demon Jr.. In 2000 Oriental defeated Super Crazy to win the UWA World Welterweight Championship. By 2004 Cynthia Moreno and himself started a feud with Faby Apache, and Gran Apache. They soon went on to face them for the AAA World Mixed Tag Championship, however Faby Apache and Gran Apache won each one of the matches. However a tournament was held in 2005 which Oriental, and Cynthia Moreno defeated Gran Apache, and Tiffany in the semi final's, and they defeated Chessman, and La Diabolica to capture the AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship. They defended they belts up until November of 2007, when they vacanted the titles due to Cynthia suffering an injury. By upon her return they turned rudo and soon defeated Mari Apache, and Gran Apache to regain back the titles. By 2009, Cynthia Moreno did not appear as much in AAA even though her and Oriental were still champions. Oriental soon paired up with Kenzo Suzuki, and Sugi San to for the rudo team of, La Yakuza. They won a series of victories until they feuded with Psycho Circus and lost. With Sugi San's injury and release from AAA, La Yakuza ended. Later that year Oriental and Cynthia defended their titles and lost them to Aero Star, and Faby Apache. After about 10 years with AAA, El Oriental departed. He started working in Perros del Mal. He soon started rising in Perros del Mal and he teamed with his other sister Rossy Moreno, and they won the VIP Mixed Tag Team Championships defeated Pentagon Black, and Xochitl Hammada, who were once their rivals in AAA. In 2010 he returned to CMLL posed as a "AAA Invader." He notably had a match with Mistico which was a mask vs mask match, which resulted in him losing. So after 18 years in wrestling, Oriental removed his mask. He announced his name was Noe Astro Moreno Leon.

Oriental has toured in Japan over 70 times. His first tour was in 1995 with W*ING. While with CMLL in the late 90's he worked in CMLL Japan. As well as working in Osaka Pro.

Besides Japan he has also toured the United States. He had his first U.S tour in 2004 for CHIKARA Pro. He took on Mike Quackenbush and he also won the IPW Mexican Lightweight Championship. He defended it later on against Skayde. The title was never mentioned again, so it is assumed El Oriental is still champion. In 2010 he returned to CHIKARA to take part in the King of Trios tournament. Along side El Alebrije, and Cuije. They were called, "Team Perros del Mal." On day one they defeated "Team Delicioso" which was made up of Curry Man, Ice Cream Jr, and Hijo del Ice Cream.
