In the late 1990s Pierroth became known as Comandante Pierroth or simply Pierroth, leader of a faction of pro-Puerto Rican wrestlers in CMLL known as Los Boricuas, despite being born in Mexico. After having suffered a stroke in November 2008 Salgado retired from wrestling. Several other wrestlers have used the name Pierroth or derivatives there off over the years, with approval from Salgado, currently Pierrothito is the only wrestler actively using the name.

In 1997 and 1998 Salgado made several appearances for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) as part of the AAA/WWF talent exchange agreement between the two companies. While his ring name is the Spanish name of the Pierrot character from the Commedia dell'Arte tradition, his mask and tights were decorated with the Harlequin style black and yellow diamonds, a character that traditionally would oppose Pierrot in the plays.

Professional wrestling careerEdit

Norberto Salgado trained under Elfego Silva and Gran Cochisse in the lucha libre school associated with Arena Isabel in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico.[1] When Salgado made his in ring debut July 1, 1984 he used the ring name "Pierroth Jr.", inspired by the wrestler Pierrot who was popular in Arena Isabel in the 1950s and 1960s despite not being related in any way.[3] Salgado adopted the same black and yellow Harlequin diamond patterns for his mask and tights, ignoring the fact that in the Commedia dell'Arte tradition Pierrot was the rival of Harlequin and normally dressed in white.[1] Early in his career he won both the Morelos Light Heavyweight Championship, and the Morelos Tag Team Championship alongside El Judio.[1] The team with El Judio later let to a storyline feud between the two that resulted in Salgado winning his first Lucha de Apuestas ("bet match") of his career,[1] in Lucha Libre the Lucha de Apuestas match is generally considered more important than championship matches.[4]

Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre / Consejo Mundial de Luch Libre (1985–1995)Edit

In 1985 Salgado, working as Pierroth Jr., began working occasional shows for Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL; Spanish for "Mexican Wrestling Enterprise. Renamed Consejo Mundial de Luch Libre; CMLL in 1992), splitting his time between working at Arena Isabel and working for EMLL in Mexico City.[1] By 1988 he was a regular performer for EMLL, winning the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship from Halcón 78 on April 4, 1988. The reign lasted for 156 days until he lost it to Mogur on September 7.[5] Pierroth Jr. became a two-time Mexican National Light Heavyweight Champion on January 12, 1990 as he defeated Mogur to win the title.[6]

Pierroth Jr. began teaming with Bestia Salvaje on a regular basis in late 1989/early 1990, forming a team that the EMLL officials decided should win the Mexican National Tag Team Championship from then-champions Ángel Azteca and Atlantis.[7] Their reign lasted 287 until they were defeated by Ángel Azteca and his new partner Volador.[7] Afterwards he was put together with Jaque Mate and Masakre to for a trio called "Los Intocables" ("The Untouchables"). On March 22, 1992 Los Intocables defeated Los Infernales (MS-1, Pirata Morgan and El Satánico) to win the CMLL World Trios Championship.[8] Los Infernales regained the championship on September 20, 1992,[8] after which Los Intocables was broken up.

Pierroth Jr. defeated Jerry Estrada to become the second ever CMLL World Light Heavyweight Champion, starting a reign that would last 379 days. On April 2, 1993, Dr. Wagner Jr. ended the reign by defeating Pierroth Jr.[6] Pierroth Jr. won the mask of El Supremo as part of CMLL's "Year end" celebration on December 8, 1992.[9] In early 1994 he won the Mexican National Heavyweight Championship from Rayo de Jalisco Jr.[10]

Asistencia Asesoría y Administración / World Wrestling Federation (1995–1997)Edit

Pierroth Jr. made his Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) debut in late 1995,[11] joining several other CMLL workers who left the promotion to join their rival instead. In AAA, he became involved in a long-running feud with La Parka, which led Pierroth Jr. to his third reign as Mexican National Light Heavyweight Champion, which lasted 11 days.[5] When Pierroth Jr. left CMLL he was still the Mexican National Heavyweight Champion and the Mexico City Lucha Libre commission allowed him to defend it in AAA after he joined the company. His reign lasted 574 days, until September 20, 1996, where he was defeated by Máscara Sagrada.[10]

In the summer of 1996 Pierroth Jr. won two separate AAA championships; First he won the newly created AAA Campeón de Campeones Championship at Triplemanía IV-B as he won a torneo cibernetico elimination match to become the first champion.[12] The following month he teamed up with Villano III, Villano IV and Villano V to become the first holders of the Mexican National Atómicos Championship by defeating the team of Damián 666, Espectro Jr., Halloween and Karis la Momia in the finals of a tournament.[13] The championship was later vacated when Los Villanos left AAA.[13] Latin Lover defeated Pierroth Jr. to win the Campeón de Campeones Championship on February 15, 1997.[12] He started his fourth and final reign as the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Champion by defeating Latin Lover for that championship.[5]

In late 1996 AAA and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF; now known as WWE) began working together, with AAA providing several luchadors that worked on WWF shows.[1] Pierroth Jr. was teamed up with Cibernético for the WWF shows, making their debut on the December 16, 1996 Raw is War show by defeating the New Rockers (Marty Jannetty and Leif Cassidy).[14] The following night the team lost to Doug Furnas and Phil LaFon by disqualification when Cibernético pulled the referee out of the ring.[14] The duo participated in the 1997 Royal Rumble match but were eliminated without any storylines.[15] On March 10, 1997 Pierroth Jr. made his last WWF appearance, teaming with Heavy Metal and Pentagón to defeat the trio of Latin Lover, Héctor Garza and Octagón.[15]

Salgado left AAA in mid-1997, while still holding both the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship, and began working on the independent circuit. At some point in 1998, he lost the championship to Máscara Sagrada who took it back to AAA.[5]

International Wrestling Revolution Group / World Wrestling Council (1997-1999)Edit

After Salgado's stint with AAA and the WWF ended, he began working for the newly formed International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG) based on Naucalpan, Mexico State. He became the first ever holder of the IWRG Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship after winning a one-night tournament by defeating Black Magic on September 29, 1997.[16] While he was champion for 672 days he only worked a few dates for IWRG between late 1997 and August 1, 1999 where he lost the title to Pirata Morgan.[16]

On July 20, 1998 Pierroth Jr. lost a Lucha de Apuestas match to long time rival La Parka, and was forced to remove his black and yellow mask and reveal his real name, Norberto Salgado Salcedo, to the crowd in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas.[9][17]

In 1997 he made his first appearance for the Puerto Rican World Wrestling Council (WWC) promotion.[18] When he returned to WWC in 1998 he was introduced as the WWC Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion, as a storyline way to introduce the championship without holding a tournament.[19] The championship was featured as part of a long-running storyline with Glamor Boy Shane, with whom he traded the championship back and forth in early 1999.[19] On March 27, 1999 Pierroth Jr. wrestled WWC Universal Champion Ray González to a draw, after which the championship was briefly vacated. Pierroth Jr. started his forth and final reign as WWC Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion on April 3, 1999 by defeating González in a rematch.[19] The following day he also won the Universal Championship from González. His reign lasted 13 days, losing the championship back to González as part of their ongoing storyline.[20] While Salgado had worked unmasked in Mexico since his Lucha de Apuestas loss to L.A. Park, but was still working under a mask in Puerto Rico, until he lost a Lucha de Apuestas match to Ray González to end the storyline feud between the two.[9]

Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (1999–2008)Edit

Los Boricuas (1999–2003)Edit

In 1999 Pierroth Jr. returned to CMLL after his extended stay in Puerto Rico ended. Upon his return Pierroth Jr. declared that he was a Boricua, or Puerto Rican, declaring the superiority of the Puerto Rican people over Mexicans.[21] He began teaming up with Gran Markus Jr. who also adopted the "Boricua" loyalty. Within weeks the duo became known officially as Los Boricuas and started to grow from a two-man team to a multi-man stable when they added the masked La Boricua and later on Veneno.[22] At this point Pierroth Jr. took the nickname "El Comandate", acting like a dictator over the group, adding the female La Nazi as his personal body guard. In mid-2000 they added Violencia to the group, replacing El Boricua.[22] In the months following the CMLL 68th Anniversary Show, Gran Markus Jr. left the group, with the storyline explanation that he was tired of being under Pierroth's command.[23]

The culmination of the storyline between Los Boricuas and various defectors came on March 21, 2003 as Pierroth Jr. and Gran Markus Jr. faced off in main event of that year's Homenaje a Dos Leyendas show. In the end Pierroth defeated Gran Markus and as a result Gran Markus Jr. was shaved bald afterwards.[24][9] The last remaining storyline for Los Boricuas saw Violencia leave the group, which at the time was basically himself and Pierroth and had Pierroth unmask Violencia at the CMLL 70th Anniversary Show.[9][25] In subsequent months Pierroth began teaming on a regular basis with Vampiro and Tarzan Boy, ending the Los Boricuas faction in CMLL.[26]

Late career (2004–2008)Edit

Following the dissolution of Los Boriquas Pierroth Jr. and Vampiro began a long-running storyline feud with Los Hermanos Dinamita, especially Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000. The storyline led to Pierroth and Vampiro losing a Lucha de Apuestas match in the main event of the 2004 Sin Piedad show, leaving both Pierroth and Vampiro totally bald.[27] His last Lucha de Apuestas match took place on November 15, 2007, where he lost to L.A. Park and was once again shaved bald as a result.[1]

RetirementEdit

Salgrado was forced to retire from professional wrestling in November 2008 after having suffered a debilitating stroke.[1][3] The stroke left him struggling to walk without support, confining him to a wheelchair.[1] Salgado has been honored on multiple occasions after his retirement. In 2009 wrestlers grouped together to organize Unido X Amistad ("United in Friendship") where the proceeds from the show went to Salgado since he could no longer work.[28] Shows in his hometown of Cuernavaca also paid home and support to Salgado.[29] Salgado made a personal appearance at IWRG's 2013 Festival de las Máscaras show on August 11, 2013, where he was presented with a plaque and applause as he put the black and yellow mask on.[30]

Name confusionEdit

Over the years several wrestlers have used the name "Pierroth", or variations on that name, in professional wrestling.

  • Pierrot I / Pierrot II – not related to Pierroth Jr.[3]
  • Hijo del Pierroth (I) – Salgado's son, the name literally translates as "the son of Pierroth", sometimes worked as "Pierroth Jr." after Salgado became known a just Pierroth.[3]
  • Hijo del Pierroth (II) – after an injury to the original Hijo del Pierroth a new person used the name and mask, this is the wrestler formerly known as "Salsero" and now works as "Pierko el Boricua" after giving up the Pierroth name.[3]
  • Pierroth Jr. – Not a son of Salgado, originally portrayed by wrestler Rey Vikingo and later replaced by the original Mosco de la Merced, who now wrestles as X-Fly[3]
  • Pierroth II – Isaac Pedro Gonzalez Nuñez lost his mask against El Canek Jr., now wrestles as El Anticristo[3]
  • Pierrothito/Mini Pierroth – a Mini-Estrella who wrestles as a smaller version of Pierroth Jr.[3]
  • Comandante Pierroth – debuted for CMLL in May 2013, formerly known as Toro Blanco and Poder Mexica.[31] Changed his ring name to "Bestia del Ring" in 2017.[32]

Professional wrestling personaEdit

After Salgado adopted his militant "Comandante Pierroth" character he earned the nickname El Bocazas ("The Big Mouthed One") for his long, vitriolic promos both in the ring and back stage.[21] Salgado adopted an intricate submission hold called "La Pierrotina", created by the original Pierrot. To execute the hold Salgado held an opponent upside down, pushing their head down on his knee while putting pressure on their legs at the same time.[2]
