History: (Last Updated: 3/04/2006)

Blitzkrieg definitely made an impact, at least to the hardcore fans, during his brief time as a Luchador in WCW. Although my info is sparse, I do know a few things about this Luchador. Blitzkrieg began his career wrestling at various indys, honing his craft. He then began touring with the PWC in Japan, wrestling many shows a week. He fought many tough battles against other up-and-coming stars in that country, earning some acclaim as a high-flyer. He also wrestled with a few other groups there before coming back to North America.

When Blitzkrieg returned from his tour, he found that most of the small indys were not looking for wrestlers. He spent many months working small jobs at local indys, trying to stay fit for when he got his shot. He also wrestled some in Mexico, where he first became acquainted with stars like Rey Mysterio Jr. Finally, in late 1998, Blitzkrieg started working out in the WCW organization. He made his first TV appearance in February '99, going all-out with Mysterio Jr for the Cruiserweight Title, which Mysterio retained after a great match. Blitzkrieg was instantly proclaimed a future star in the cruiserweight division. He then wrestled matches against many of the top cruiserweights, including facing off with Juventud Guerrera at Spring Stampede '99, but failed to make a serious dent in the division. Although highly respected for his abilities, Blitzkrieg soon disappeared from WCW in late '99, when the federation stopped concentrating on the cruiserweight battles.

Blitzkrieg later appeared in Revolution Pro Wrestling and All Pro Wrestling, but never really returned to the big time after his 15 minutes of fame. He later retired, even coming out on a December '04 Pro Wrestling WAR show to hand over his mask and gimmick to Jack Evans (who became Blitzkrieg II). His career was certainly short, but it's remembered, which is all that should matter to Jay Ross.
