Professional wrestling careerEdit
In one of his first matches with The Mexican Powers, he and Crazy Boy teamed with Juventud Guerrera and Psicosis II in an 8-man tag team match to defeat Chessman, Escoria, Cuervo and Ozz at the Verano de Escandalo (2006) on September 17, 2006. Three months later at Guerra de Titanes 2006, Líder was pinned by Escoria in a match with Crazy Boy and Psicosis against Escoria, Cuervo and Ozz.
He also took part in a 4-team elimination match to determine the first AAA World Tag Team Championship at Rey de Reyes (2007) but lost out to Cuervo and Ozz when Líder was pinned by Ozz in the final fall. The other participants were Alan Stone and Zumbido and Pegasso and Super Fly.
On July 15, 2007, he and Crazy Boy won the AAA World Tag Team Championship from Cuervo and Ozz in a ladder match at Triplemania XV. At the first annual 2007 Antonio Peña Memorial Show, he and the Mexipowers lost to Extreme Tiger, Halloween and Nicho el Millonario.
At Verano de Escandalo (2007), Líder was pinned by Mr. Niebla in an 8-man tag team match pitting The Mexican Powers (Líder, Crazy Boy, Extreme Tiger and Juventud Guerrera) against Antifaz del Norte, Histeria, Mr. Niebla and Psicosis. Líder and Crazy Boy later defended their titles in an "extreme four way dance" against Charly Manson and Chessman, Extreme Tiger and Halloween and Teddy Hart and Sabu at Guerra de Titanes 2007 on November 20, 2007. At Rey de Reyes (2008), Líder was involved in a 6-man ladder match involving Chessman, Teddy Hart, Halloween, Juventud Guerrera and Extreme Tiger who won the match.
He later regained the AAA World Tag Team titles with Nicho el Millonario, calling themselves La Hermandad Extrema (later renamed La Hermandad 187), at Verano de Escandalo (2008) in a "four-way" ladder match between Crazy Boy and Último Gladiador, Extreme Tiger and Halloween, and Jack Evans and Teddy Hart. They successfully defended the titles against Alan and Chris Stone and Jack Evans and Teddy Hart in a "three-way" ladder match at the 2008 Antonio Peña Memorial Show. They also faced Jack Evans and Teddy Hart at Guerra de Titanes 2008 fighting them to a double-countout. At the 2009 Rey de Reyes, Líder was eliminated in the opening rounds by Alan Stone. This was a 4-man elimination match that also included Elegido and Silver King. La Hermandad 187 are the longest reigning tag team champions, with a reign of 551 days. On March 19, 2010 they lost the championship to La Legión Extranjera representatives Taiji Ishimori and Takeshi Morishima. On June 6, 2010, at Triplemania XVIII, La Hermandad 187 participated in a 4-Way elimination match for the AAA World Tag Team Championship. Líder eliminated the then reigning AAA World Tag Team Champions (Atsushi Aoki and Go Shiozaki) when he pinned Shiozaki. later on Líder was pinned by James Storm of Beer Money, Inc. after interference from Konnan, denying them the chance to regain the tag team championship. Later in the night La Hermandad helped Cibernético beat up almost all the members of La Legión. Afterwards La Hermandad started feuding with La Sociedad, a superstable consisting of invaders from Los Perros del Mal and members of Los Maniacos, La Legión Extrangera and La Milicia, El Zorro and Hernandez in particular. La Hermandad received their rematch for the AAA World Tag Team Championship from Los Maniacos (Silver King and Último Gladiador) on September 19, 2010, but Lider was forced to enter the match without Nicho, who was taken out by El Zorro, Hernandez and La Legión the previous week, and was unable to regain the championship. At Héroes Inmortales IV Nicho and Lider gained a measure of revenge on Konnan by defeating him and Perros del Mal members Damián 666 and Halloween in a three–on–two handicap hardcore match. On December 5 at Guerra de Titanes Líder and Nicho received a shot at the AAA World Tag Team Championship, but were unable to dethrone Los Maniacos in a three–way ladder match, which also included Hernandez and El Ilegal. On June 18 at Triplemanía XIX, Líder, Electroshock and Heavy Metal defeated Silver King, Último Gladiador and Chessman in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match. During the match, Nicho tried entered the ring and tried to exact revenge on La Maniarquía for injuring him, but was stopped and suspended by AAA president Joaquín Roldan. Nicho returned to AAA on July 16, threatening Roldan, which led to Líder trying to calm his partner down. This in turn led to Nicho declaring that if Líder was with Roldan, they were no longer friends. Later in the event, Nicho interfered in Líder's match and turned on him, effectively ending La Hermandad 187. On July 31 at Verano de Escándalo, Nicho attacked Líder during a Monster's Ball match and put him through a flaming table, costing him the match in the process. In early 2012, Líder reunited with the returning Juventud Guerrera as the Mexican Powers. On May 6, Líder and Guerrera challenged Abyss and Chessman for the AAA World Tag Team Championship, but were defeated following interference from Nicho, now working as Psicosis and wearing his old mask, supposedly to cover his face burned by Líder. On August 5 at Triplemanía XX, Líder reunited with Psicosis for one night to take part in a Parejas Suicidas steel cage match, featuring three other former tag teams. Líder lost the match, after being turned on by Psicosis, forcing the two to face other in a Hair vs. Hair match later in the event. In the end, the match was won by Psicosis, forcing Líder to have his head shaved bald.
On September 7, 2014, Líder turned on Argenis and Jack Evans and joined the Los Perros del Mal stable. On December 7, Líder and Perros del Mal's newest member Pentagón Jr. won the AAA World Tag Team Championship. They held the title until October 4, 2015.
