Professional wrestling career

Carlos Elio Colosetti became a professional wrestler in his native Argentina before travelling through all South America, Central America and North to Mexico in order to work full time as a wrestler. In Mexico he often competed under the ring name Coloso Colosetti (Spanish for "Colossal Colosetti") and was a regular on Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL) shows. On December 19, 1968 Colosetti's singles career peaked when he defeated Ray Mendoza to win the NWA World Light Heavyweight Championship, which at the time was considered the top ranked singles title in Mexico. His reign as the top champion lasted until March 20, 1970 when Ray Mendoza regained the championship. Later on Colosetti worked extensively in Southern California, primarily for the NWA Hollywood territory. While competing in NWA Hollywood Colosetti and Jonathan Boyd teamed up to win the NWA Americas Tag Team Championship from Hector Guerrero and Barry Orton on May 18, 1979 on a show in Los Angeles, California. The team only held the title for one day, losing it to a team known as The Twin Devils on the 19th. Colosetti remained active until the late 1990s, with his last national exposure being him losing a Lucha de Apuesta match to Perro Aguayo on June 26, 1991, and being forced to have his hair shaved off after the match per Lucha traditions.
