WWC Career (1973-2002)

Huertas started in 1966, wrestling for Vincent J. McMahon and the World Wide Wrestling Federation (known today as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)) as a jobber. When Victor Jovica and Carlos Colon opened the World Wrestling Council (WWC) in 1973, Huertas went back to Puerto Rico to work for the company. He stayed for twenty-nine years, wrestling foes such as Joe LeDuc, Pierre Martel, Bruiser Brody, Abdullah the Butcher, Dutch Mantell, Chicky Starr, Ray Gonzalez and Terry Ray Gordy, until problems between him and both Jovica and Colon started. As a result he left WWC after twenty-nine years of being one of the headliners of the company, and took one year off to rest and plan his next move. Vincent J. McMahon Vincent J.

IWA Career (2003-2006)

Huertas debuted in the International Wrestling Association (IWA) as a surprise in June 2003 and announced that he will be the special referee between then-champion Ray Gonzalez and Gran Apolo at Summer Attitude 2003. Just as Huertas debuted in the IWA his ex-WWC foe Savio Vega started challenging Invader #1 to fight him, having referee Herberito Lopez don an Invader #1 mask to mock him. Invader and Vega wrestled at IWA Christmas in Puerto Rico later that year in a barbed wire match which Gonzalez won. 2004 started off with Invader #1 being confused about why the Millennium Family was going the heel route, since Ray Gonzalez, El Profe, El Diamante, Thunder and Lightning were attacking fan favorites such as Ricky Banderas, Gran Apolo, Glamour Boy Shane and others. He teamed with his arch-enemy Savio Vega to feud with Thunder and Lightning for the rest of fall 2004. He spent most of 2005 as the "Coach" of the New Generation of the IWA, leading Chicano to the Heavyweight title over Shane at Juicio Final in Caguas, Puerto Rico on April 9, 2005. He resumed his feud with Savio during that year as well, and popped out of La Cruzz del Diablo's casket, causing Chicano to lose the title on November 11, 2005, in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. He served once again as special referee in the Vega-Chicano match at IWA Christmas in Puerto Rico 2005. The match went to a no-contest, and Chicano turned heel by attacking Gonzalez. 2006 started off with Invader #1 wrestling Chicano at Histeria Boricua on January 6, 2006, and receiving a wound that needed 58 stiches to close and a black eye. He feuded with Chicano all over the island. He turned heel later on in the year by teaming with Savio Vega to attack Ray Gonzalez while he was handcuffed to the top rope, and giving "Mr. Raytings" several heart punches and bloodying him as well. He spent the remainder of 2006 as part of the "Inhumans" team with Vega until September 16, 2006 in Cayey, Puerto Rico when he turned on Savio's La Compania by attacking Mikel Judas and counting the pin very quickly when Ray Gonzalez had Judas covered, helping him regain the held-up title. He had his last match at IWA Hardcore Weekend on October 16, 2006 when he and Vega fought all over the Sola Morales Stadium, and pinned him in his last match.

On July 17, 1988, Bruiser Brody before wrestling a match with Abdullah the Butcher and Dan Spivey in Bayamón (a city near San Juan, Puerto Rico), when Huertas came up to him in the locker room and asked him to go into the shower to discuss business.

It is known that several wrestlers in the scene saw that Huertas was holding a knife wrapped inside a towel when he was waiting for Brody to arrive in the locker room. Since Huertas was at that time one of the men who made decisions at the WWC meetings and was also a good friend of Carlos Colón (WWC Promoter and main superstar), it has been speculated that this is why none of the wrestlers did anything to prevent Brody from "talking" to Huertas. There is more than one person named Carlos Colón: The wrestler Carlos Colón, better known as Carlitos Colon his son, the wrestler Carlos Colón Jr. ...


Huertas got into the shower area first and, when Brody bent his head to enter the shower area, Huertas grabbed his hair and stabbed Brody several times in the stomach.[1] Brody was taken by ambulance to Centro Medico, the main hospital facility in San Juan, but he died hours later while undergoing a second surgery.


Huertas, who always maintained his innocence by citing self-defense, was tried for murder, but was acquitted.[2] Afterwards, a number of wrestlers refused to work in Puerto Rico in protest of the verdict.
