Professional wrestling career

Fidel Sierra Fidel Sierra amp Fantasy speak out OWW

Sierra was trained by Hiro Matsuda in Tampa, Florida.

Sierra has worked for Puerto Rico's World Wrestling Council (WWC) since 1985, as both a wrestler and a backstage worker. He also wrestled all over the United States, including in Dallas, Texas for the Von Erich family, in Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling for the Crockett family (Jim Crockett, Sr. and Jim Crockett, Jr.), in Florida and Georgia, and for Don Owen in Portland, Oregon. He has also competed in Stampede Wrestling in Canada, in the Dominican Republic, and in Japan, via his association with the National Wrestling Alliance. In Japan, he competed against the likes of Andre the Giant, Antonio Inoki, and Tatsumi Fujinami. He also competed under a mask in Mexico as The Boricua until he lost a Mask vs. Mask match to La Parka.

While wrestling under the ring name 'Top Gun', Sierra faced Ric Flair in a match that ended in a 60-minute time limit draw.

Sierra also wrestled in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as 'Fidel Sierra'. He is known for a Feud with Jim Duggan provoked by international tensions between democracy in the United States and communism in Cuba. In WCW, Fidel Sierra regularly teamed with Ricky Santana. Originally billed as The Cuban Connection, the duo were renamed The Barrio Brothers (Ricky Barrio and Fidel Barrio) in the mid-1990s in an effort to appear more up-to-date. Sierra and Santana also performed in WCW wearing masks and full-body suits as Los Especialistas (Especialista I and Especialista II). Their identities were revealed on-air on the live Main Event pre-show of Clash of the Champions XXXI, when they were unmasked by The Nasty Boys following a match.

While wrestling in Canada as "Crazy" David Patterson, Sierra asked permission from the original Cuban Assassin, Ángel Acevedo, to use the 'Cuban Assassin' character, to which Acevedo agreed, on the condition that Sierra did not use the name or gimmick in Japan.

Personal life

Sierra is married to Fantasy, his long-time manager. She is his fourth wife, and as of 2011, the pair have been married for 19 years. Sierra has two daughters and a son. Sierra and his wife own a sports bar, Crazy Dave's Sports Bar, in Largo, Florida.
