When famed wrestling reporter Dave Meltzer began watching lucha libre, he wrote that the three best workers in the EMLL were El Dandy, Pirata Morgan, and Jerry Estrada. In fact, the first match from Mexico ever to get a vaunted four-star rating in Meltzer's newsletter may have been Estrada's hair match with Satanico in March 1990. A Northern-based wrestler from Monclova, Estrada came to Mexico City in the early 1980s at the suggestion of Herodes, one of the men who had trained him. He gained a reputation as a bit of a wild man, but Estrada's working ability ensured his placement in the wrestling scene. Working rudo in the middleweight and light-heavyweight divisions (he won titles in both categories), he was expected to be able to brawl, fly, wrestle technically, stir up the crowd, and even compete with an eye patch on as a member of Los Bucaneros, Pirata Morgan's pirate-themed trio. His standout attribute was his bumping, particularly the high handstand-like vaults he took on backdrops outside of the ring.

Estrada was seldom the focus of his promotions, instead being tasked with making the tecnicos look good. He did main event one of the 1994 Triplemania shows (Estrada jumped to AAA a month or so after the promotion's inception) against newly turned Heavy Metal, but that match ended in disaster, with the finish supposedly being changed multiple times. After Estrada won the match as (apparently) planned, Antonio Peña ordered a fourth fall, promptly won by Metal. This all led to Estrada storming off without getting his head shaved. Perhaps his greatest moment was in his hometown when he took the hair of longtime rival Stuka in a match taped for television.

In spite of his reckless style and a long period of apparent retirement, Estrada remained semi-active through at least 2019. In his old age he usually wrestles in the North, but in 2018 he found his way back to Arena Mexico one last time on a show featuring several legends from the past.
