International Star Ciclon Negro Passes Away
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.25.2013



According to f4wonline.com, Romon Rodriguez, best known as Ciclon Negro, passed away at the age of 80 in Melbourne, FL.

He was a former boxer, who would often do stunts to show how hard his head was, breaking boards and more over his head. Between 1956 and 1982, he was a main event talent all over the world, and considered one of the best performers in the ring of his era. His career started in 1956, and he came to North America in 1960. He worked San Francisco, where he headlined at the Cow Palace on several occasions, Florida, where he had main event runs at different times against the likes of Jack Brisco and Dusty Rhodes. He also worked as a masked star in Australia and Japan as Caribs Hurricane, working programs with the Destroyer.

In the early 70s, he achieved his biggest success, working out of Amarillo and having legendary Texas death matches against the likes of Dory Funk Sr. and Terry Funk. He was the top heel of the territory and is considered one of the biggest drawing cards in history in that part of the country.

Our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Rodriguez.
