|Universo 2000 (Universe 2000)|
He debuted under the name of "Especial", though we can only confirm it was before 1984. In 1984, he changed his name to Universo 2000, though many sources seem to incorrectly state that this did not happen until June 15th, 1985.
He is said to have won the mask of Jinete De La Muerte on October 28th, 1984, which may be his first mask vs mask win.
Through our limited results, he did not appear to team regularly with his brothers until 1987, two years after Mascara Ano 2000 and Cien Caras had established themselves as a team. The team became known as Los Hermanos Dinamita and became one of the most famous rudo trios in lucha libre history.
An odd situation occurred in 1991. Anibal was ending his career and had planned to lose his mask. Universo 2000 was chosen to defeated him for his mask, but Benjamin Mora, a promoter and magazine owner spoiled the plans. Instead of Universo 2000 winning Anibal's mask, Mascara Ano 2000 took Anibal's mask instead.
Universo and his brothers captured their first trios title on August 1st, 1991, by winning the Mexican National Trios Championship. The team defeated Los Movie Stars of Atlantis, Octagon and Mascara Sagrada for the titles.
The team jumped to AAA in 1992(being part of their first main event), and in an unusual situation, were able to take their trios titles with them. Soon after making the move, he became a double champion by defeating Mascara Sagrada for the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship. He held the title unil September 18th, 1992, when he was defeated by Lizmark. During Universo's and the Dinamita's stay in AAA, they feuded with the likes of Lizmark, Octagon, Los Villanos, Mascara Sagrada and Perro Aguayo who went to AAA with them. They also formed new rivalries with Los Payasos and Los Gringos Locos.
Universo 2000 captured the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship on October 17th, 1997, in a triangle match with Rayo and Cien Caras. He held onto the title for 11 months, until he lost it to Rayo on September 13th, 1998. Universo's brothers Cien and Mascara tried to win the title back but were unsuccessful. However, Universo got a rematch for the title on December 10th, 1999, and beat Rayo for the title. He made an impressive 19 defenses through 2003 before losing to Mr. Niebla.
During his Heavyweight title reign, he won three different apuestas matches. He beat Perro Aguayo for his hair on March 20th, 2001 after hitting his signature Black Hammer martinete. As Perro was put on a stretcher, his head was shaved. He won a mask cibernetico tournament on September 20th, 2002, when he won the mask of Bulldog and he captured the hair of Pierroth Jr. on December 5th, 2003. He became a double champion again during this period as he teamed with Dr. Wagner Jr. and Black Tiger on March 21st, 2003 to win the CMLL World Trios Championship.
Universo was the only masked Dinamita from 1994 until he lost his mask to Canek in a four way match on September 17th, 2004 when he was disqualified. He was not expected to lose the match. He did get some revenge though as on October 8th, 2004, he beat Canek for the 3rd annual Leyenda de Azul.
He also captured the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship for the 3rd time on October 12th, 2004 when he beat Mr. Niebla. This ended up being another long reign as he held the title until July 8th, 2007.
He won the hair of Hector Garza on September 16th, 2005 and the hair of Halloween on December 2nd, 2005. But on March 17th, 2006, he lost his hair to Perro Aguayo Jr. who got revenge for his father's hair loss to Universo.
He started appearing less with CMLL in 2008. In 2009, his son Universo 2000 Jr. started appearing and often teamed up with the Dinamitas. In the mid 2010's, Universo's nephews El Cuatrero, Sansón and Forastero also debuted, carrying on the Dinamita name to the next generation. He helped train them and others under the promotional name of "Promociones Dinamita".
In 2016, Universo 2000 suffered a heart attack, and had another heart attack in 2017, which both effectively ended his career. He passed away on May 1st, 2018.
