WCW: Ciclope

Manuel Ortiz Partida was born May 22, 1971 in Tijuana, Baja California. He is a pro wrestler who is currently wrestling on the Independent Circuit in Mexico, particularly in the Tijuana area.
He is better known by his stage name Halloween.

Manuel Ortiz Partida made his pro wrestling debut in 1990 at Auditorio de Tijuana in Tijuana, Baja California. He spent his time in the Independent Circuit.
He wrestled as "Halloween" for most of his career but switched to "Ciclope" in 1996 when he went to WCW.
Ciclope was neglected in WCW, even when compared to the other luchadors there at the time.
His biggest moment in WCW was as part of the feud between then Cruiserweight Champion Chris Jericho and Dean Malenko.
Malenko, who had been inactive for several months, dressed up as Ciclope to win a Cruiserweight battle royale to determine the number one contender for Chris Jericho's Cruiserweight Title.
Jericho had been refusing to grant Malenko a match, making the disguise necessary.
All Ciclope got out of the deal was a singles match with Jericho on Nitro, which he lost.

Here's a video of Rey Mysterio Jr wrestling Ciclope in the WCW.
