RIP Black Warrior Warrior’s tope was THE most dynamic & impressive I’ve seen to this day- it makes sense that he was often called El Rey del Tope. I had the privilege to wrestle on shows that featured his feud w/ Mistico & they were ELECTRIC.
Just incredibly sad news overnight as many outlets reporting Black Warrior (54) passed away. This coming not even a year removed from his son’s tragic death after an in-ring accident left him paralyzed. #QEPD

Sad to hear of the passing of Black Warrior. He was talented. I’ll never forget his rivalry with Mistico when I first arrived in Mexico, selling out every venue, fans were wild for him. Condolences to his family.
