Professional Wrestling Career
Growing up Navarro watched his older brother wrestle as El Dandy and followed in his footsteps at the age of 17. Navarro made his debut under the ring name Ángel del Barrio (Spanish for "Angel of the Neighborhood"). Navarro worked for just over two years as Ángel del Barrio before losing his mask to Hator as a result of a Luchas de Apuestas, or bet match. A month later Navarro had his hair shaved off after losing another Luchas de Apuesta to Hator. Following the mask and hair loss Navarro began working as "Randy" and later on as "Vaquero I" (Spanish for "Cowboy I").
In 2006 Navarro began working regularly on the main Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) shows, adopting a new ring persona; A masked personal called Mictlán, based on the myhtis of the Aztec Underworld. Over the next two years Mictlán worked in the first or second matches on the show without direction until he started a storyline feud with Dragón Rojo, Jr.. The storyline between the two build to a Luchas de Apuesta between the two masked men. On August 8, 2009 Mictlán lost to Dragón Rojo, Jr. and was unmasked. Following the mask loss CMLL has promoted Mictlán a bit higher in the rankings, giving him more of a metrosexual, stripper ring persona. Following his unmasking Mictlán won the hair of Loco Max on December 12, 2008 in a Luchas de Apuestas match. On August 18, 2009 Mictlán defeated Misterioso, Jr. to win the Occidente (Western) Light Heavyweight Championship, overcoming both his opponent and interference from Máscara Mágica, Misterioso, Jr's cornerman. After the match Mictlán revealed that he was wrestling with an injured elbow but did not let that stop him from competing. He also made a Luchas de Apuestas challenge for a "hair vs. hair" match with Máscara Mágica. In the weeks after Mictlán's title victory Máscara Mágica repeatedly attacked Mictlán before matches, claiming that he "did not want to see Mictlán dance". Máscara Mágica pinned Mictlán in several tag and six-man matches leading up to their Lucha de Apuesta on September 17, 2009 at Arena Coliseo in Guadalajara. Mictlán won the first fall after Máscara Magica was disqualified for excessive violence. Mágica won the second fall but Mictlán picked up the third fall to win the match. Afterwards Máscara Mágica took the clippers from the official and shaved his own hair off.

“Each of the professions means a prejudice. The necessity for a career forces every one to take sides. We live in the age of the overworked, and the under-educated; the age in which people are so industrious that they become absolutely stupid.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
“As a scientist Im afraid Im a professional skeptic who doubts everything, even the certainties.”
—Karl Brown (18971990)
“We laugh at him who steps out of his room at the very moment when the sun steps out, and says: I will the sun to rise; and at him who cannot stop the wheel, and says: I will it to roll; and at him who is taken down in a wrestling match, and says: I lie here, but I will that I lie here! And yet, all laughter aside, do we ever do anything other than one of these three things when we use the expression, I will?”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
