To quote "Dr. Lucha" Steve Sims, Diablo Velazco is arguably one of the 10 most influential people in the entire history of lucha libre and un-arguably one of the top 20. He's the most famous trainer ever in lucha libre and a man that gave everything he had to lucha. He always had such a big reputation as a trainer but he never was in it for the money, as he'd firmly refuse to train any wrestlers without any knowledge of amateur wrestling because he wasn't there to make "stars", he was there to make "wrestlers". Though in the end, the quality of many of those Velazco-trained wrestlers made them stars.
