Oscar Arismendi had an interest in profesional wrestling. At first his father did not want him to follow his foot step, but he eventually had to accept his son's decision. His professional debut was in Porto Alegre Brazil in 1964. The wrestling promoter Teti Alfonzo gave him the opportunity to begin his professional wrestling career. Most of his gimmicks were heels. In 1972 during his run at Titanes en el Ring he portrayed El Príncipe Valiente he had a notable match against the veteran Martin Karadagian. In 1975 his father and him went to the Lucha Fuerte promotion his new name and character was the Mexican Danny Rey. In 1988 he adopted a different foreign persona, Rudo Valdez The Colombian Rudo/The Colombian Champion. Another gimmick portrayed during his time in Lucha Fuerte was Rudo Valderrama nicknamed as "La Fiera". In 2001 the Titanes en el Ring promotion had a revival and he made his return as Rudo Valdez persona and he held a Championship.
