One of the best luchadores has passed away.
Some unfortunate news made headlines today as it was announced that legendary luchadore Rayo de Jalisco Sr. passed away after 85-years on this earth. Rayo de Jalisco Sr., real name Máximino Linares Moreno was looked upon as one of Mexico's greatest luchadores and he has also been featured in a number of luchadore films as well.
Jalisco Sr. began his career as an in-ring performer in the 1950's and stepped away from the ring towards the end of the 80's. Throughout his time as a wrestler he held the NWA World Middleweight Championship three times and was a Mexican National Tag Team Champion. In 2014 Jalisco Sr. was inducted into the AAA Hall Of Fame and is considered to be a "hero" in the state in which he named his ring name after, Jalisco. Jalisco Sr. as mentioned was featured in a number of luchadore films and his success is carried on by his son Rayo de Jalisco Jr. who is also a professional wrestler and has held a number of championships in CMLL and is the current WWA World Heavyweight Champion.
