Mexican wrestler Mr. Niebla passed away today (12/23/19) after an apparent blood infection.
The former CMLL World Champion had a very public battle with alcoholism which caused him to get pulled off shows and suspended. He would show up overly intoxicated to events to the point that he could not wrestle. He returned to CMLL early this year after a suspension was lifted.
He won the CMLL World Title from Universo 2000 in April 2003 and lost it back to him in October 2004.
He and Shocker won the CMLL World Tag Titles from Dr. Wagner Jr. and Emilio Charles Jr. in 1998 but vacated later that year when he (Mr. Niebla) suffered an injury.
He was also 1/3 of the CMLL Trios Champions on two occasions with different partners.
