The wrestler who would later become known as Psycho Clown was born on December 16, 1985, son of Luchador José Alvarado Nieves, better known under the Ring name(s) Brazo de Plata or Super Porky. He is one of Alvarado's six children and was the first of them to take up wrestling although he was later joined by at least one brother and two sisters.

He was not trained by his father or any of his uncles for his Professional wrestling career, instead Memo Díaz was responsible for training the young Alvarado as well as his brother José Christian. He made his debut in 2000 working as Brazo de Plata Jr. ("Silver Arm Jr."), taking his father's name and adopting the same style mask his father had worn. Early in his career he worked mainly on the Mexican independent circuit for a number of smaller promotions. One of these promotions was the Xtreme Latin American Wrestling (XLAW) promotion which was where he won his first wrestling championship. On December 16, 2001, Brazo de Plata Jr. won the XLAW Junior Heavyweight Championship, only to lose it later in the night to Crazzy Boy.

Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (2003–2006)

In 2003 he along with his brother (now working as Brazo de Platino Jr.) and his cousin (working as Brazo de Oro Jr. began working for Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) the same company his father worked for. The Junior Brazos started off low in the ranks of CMLL, wrestling in the first or second match of the night, as they were still very inexperienced. While in CMLL he received further training from CMLL's main trainers El Satánico and Franco Colombo In 2005 their fathers decided that it would be better for their sons to not use the "Brazo" name in wrestling, but instead try to create a separate identity for themselves and not live off the Brazo name. Brazo de Platino Jr. became Máximo, Brazo de Oro Jr. became La Máscara and Brazo de Plata Jr. adopted the enmascarado identity "Kronos".

Brazo de Plata Jr. (2006–2007)

Of the three Kronos saw the least amount of success in CMLL and decided to leave the company in 2006. Instead he joined Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA) at the same time as his father jumped from CMLL to AAA. In AAA he initially worked as "Brazo de Plata Jr.". After joining AAA he received further training from AAA's head trainer Gran Apache, honing his in-ring skills.

Los Psycho Circus (2007–2016)

In late 2007 AAA decided to repackage Brazo de Plata Jr. turning him into "Psycho Clown" and making him a part of Los Psycho Circus along with Killer Clown and Zombie Clown. All three wrestlers were given rubber masks with twisted, horrific facial expressions inspired by the movie Killer Klowns from Outer Space. As Psycho Clown he wears a mask includes a foot tall bright red and blue colored Mohawk and a long plastic tongue sticking out of the mouth. The team made their debut on December 14, 2007, during a show in Chilpancingo, Guerrero where they defeated Real Fuerza Aérea (Aero Star, Super Fly and Pegasso). Los Psycho Circus was physically larger than most of the AAA wrestlers and soon established themselves as a dominant force in the ring as they began to amass an exaggerated winning streak. Los Psycho Circus developed a rivalry with The Dark Family, teaming with Chessman to even the sides between the two teams. On January 18, 2009, Los Psycho Circus and Chessman defeated The Dark Family (Dark Cuervo, Dark Escoria, Dark Espiritu, and Dark Ozz) to win the Mexican National Atómicos Championship. The team's run with the Atómicos title ended after just 8 days when AAA Commissioner Vampiro stripped Chessman and Los Psycho Circus of the titles because they had attacked him during a show the night before.

They wrestled at Triplemania XVII, defeating Real Fuerza Aérea (Laredo Kid, Super Fly, and Aero Star) in a sub-three minute match which Los Psycho Circus dominated. Psycho Circus kept their winning streak alive as they defeated La Yakuza (El Oriental, Kenzo Suzuki, and Sugi San) in the opening match of the 2009 Verano de Escandalo. In late 2009 Los Psycho Circus began siding with Cibernético in his feud with Konnan and La Legión Extranjera teaming with him in eight-man matches against La Legión; this was the first time that Los Psycho Circus had teamed up with a tecnico (good guy). At the 2010 Rey de Reyes event Los Psycho Circus serve as Lumberjacks during a Lumberjack match where they kept La Legión from interfering in the match, allowing Cibernético to pin Konnan. During mid-2010 it was announced that Los Psycho Circus ' win streak had reached 600 victories. On October 31, 2010, Los Psycho Circus formed a new alliance named Potencia Mundial (World Power) with AAA Mega Champion Dr. Wagner Jr. On December 5, 2010, at Guerra de Titanes Los Psycho Circus' long undefeated streak came to an end, when Los Perros del Mal (Damián 666, Halloween. and X-Fly) handed them their first ever loss in a steel cage weapons match, thanks to an interference from the leader of Los Perros, El Hijo del Perro Aguayo.

On January 2, 2011, Psycho Clown and Murder Clown represented AAA in the Guerra de Empresas, a battle between different promotions, hosted by International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG). After defeating Team Desastre Total Ultraviolento (Crazy Boy and Joe Líder), Los Psycho Circus advanced to the finals, where they defeated Team Los Perros del Mal (Super Crazy and X-Fly) to win the tournament. On April 24, 2011, Los Psycho Circus defeated Los Maniacos (Joe Líder, Silver King, and Último Gladiador), Los Oficiales (Oficial 911, Oficial AK-47, and Oficial Fierro) and Los Perros del Mal (Bestia 666, Damián 666, and X-Fly) in a four–way elimination steel cage match to win the IWRG Intercontinental Trios Championship during IWRG's Guerra de Empresas. The feud between Los Psycho Circus and Los Perros del Mal continued on May 29, 2011, at Perros del Mal Producciones' third anniversary show, where the two groups faced each other in a six-man tag team steel cage Mask vs. Hair Lucha de Apuesta. In the end, Psycho Clown was the last person to escape the cage, leaving behind Super Crazy, who was then forced to have his head shaved bald. The feud continued at Triplemanía XIX, where Damián 666, Halloween, and X-Fly defeated Los Psycho Circus in a tournament final to become the inaugural AAA World Trios Champions. On July 31 at Verano de Escándalo, Los Psycho Circus faced Los Perros del Mal faced in a steel cage match, where the last person left in the cage would lose either his mask or hair. The match ended with Psycho Clown escaping the cage, leaving X-Fly inside and forcing him to have his hair shaved off. On August 28, Los Psycho Circus lost the IWRG Intercontinental Trios Championship to Bestia 666, Damián 666, and X-Fly of Los Perros del Mal in a four-team steel cage match, which also included Los Temerarios (Black Terry, Durok, and Machin) and Los Villanos (Kortiz, Ray Mendoza Jr., and Villano IV). On October 9 at Héroes Inmortales, Los Psycho Circus and Los Perros del Mal ended their year long rivalry, when the clowns defeated Damián 666, Halloween, and Nicho el Millonario in a Mask vs. Hair steel cage match to take their hairs. After a five-month break from the rivalry, Los Psycho Circus defeated Damián 666, Halloween, and X-Fly of Los Perros del Mal on March 11, 2012, to win the AAA World Trios Championship. They lost the title to El Consejo (Máscara Año 2000 Jr., El Texano Jr. and Toscano) on May 19, 2012. Los Psycho Circus regained the title from El Consejo on February 18, 2013. On September 5, Psycho Clown pinned AAA Mega Champion, El Texano Jr., in a six-man captain's fall tag team match to earn his first shot at AAA's top title. He received his title shot on October 18 at Héroes Inmortales VII, but was defeated by El Texano Jr., following a fast count from rudo referee Hijo del Tirantes. This led to another AAA World Trios Championship match on December 8 at Guerra de Titanes, where Los Psycho Circus defeated El Consejo representatives El Texano Jr., El Hijo del Fantasma and Silver King to retain their title. On June 7, 2014, at Verano de Escándalo, Psycho Clown once again failed to capture the AAA Mega Championship from El Texano Jr. after referee Rafael el Maya turned rudo and joined El Consejo. The rivalry between Psycho Clown and El Texano Jr. culminated on August 17 at Triplemanía XXII, where Psycho Clown was victorious in a Lucha de Apuestas between the two, forcing his rival to have his head shaved. Los Psycho Circus lost the AAA World Trios Championship to Los Hell Brothers (Averno, Chessman and Cibernético) on June 14, 2015, at Verano de Escándalo.
