Maybe you guys knew this, but speaking of the original El Medico who headlined in Texas in the late '50s and passed away in 1960, who there's been some degree of wondering about, little crosschecking with Don Luce confirms that he was one and the same as Cesareo Anselmo Manriquez Gonzalez, the original El Medico Asesino in Mexico, who held the EMLL Mexican National heavyweight title from 1956 till his death, and was the original of all the white mask/white gear Medico/Medic/Doctor gimmicks, and btw was the star of the first lucha movie.

So long from the Sunshine State!

This is the first listing I have of the original El Medico wrestling in Texas.

The San Antonio Light
San Antonio, Texas
Wednesday September 26, 1956


WRESTLING

Suni War Cloud, the Indian heavyweight, wrestles Ex-World Champion Lou Thesz 2-out-of-3-falls in the main event Wednesday night. There'll be an hour's time limit.

In the semi-final El Medico vs. Ray Gunkel. Special match: Stu Gibson vs. Maurice LaPointe, Doug Donovan vs. Jim LaRock and The Sheik vs. Johnny Bence.

...the results:

The San Antonio Express
San Antonio, Texas
Thursday September 27, 1956


WAR CLOUD, THESZ DRAW

Lou Thesz, making his first appearance here since losing his world heavyweight wrestling title, and Suni War Cloud, the wild Indian, wrestled to a one hour draw in the main event Wednesday night at the Wrestlethon.

Thesz won the first fall in 15:25 with a flying body press, but Suni War Cloud came back to get an Indian death lock on Thesz in the second fall and force him to yield after 6:37.

Time ran out before either could gain a second fall.

Next week the Indian meets Doug Donovan in the main event while girl wrestlers will appear in the special attraction.

The semi-final between El Medico and Ray Gunkel ended at 9:38 in a no contest after both men fell from the ring and were unable to return before the 20-second count-out.

Other results; Stu Gibson was disqualified at 12:11 in his match with Maurice LaPointe; Doug Donovan defeated Jim LaRock in 15:23 and The Sheik defeated Johnny Bence in 12:11.

Mystery Man, I have one earlier result than that:

Domingo, Argentina December 5, 1954
El Medico v Lothario

For now you have his first match in San Antonio, TX. His next was in Fort Worth on Oct 1, 1956

He died of cancer on June, 16, 1960 in
Torreon, MX

I cannot tell without a picture from 1954, if it were the same guy as the 1956 one.

MM was talking about his first match in Texas. I think that match you got was in Argentina. 'Domingo' means 'Sunday', and that date calculates out to a Sunday. Did Lutteroth share talent with the Zbyszkos? I suspect this was somebody else entirely, as I would think he would work as El Medico Asesino in a Spanish speaking country.

This thing about the first lucha movie is interesting. It's titled 'El Enmascarado de Plata' ('The Man Masked in Silver') which of course was Santo's nickname. The story is that it was written with Santo in mind and first offered to him (actually as a 12-part serial of shorts), but he turned it down, thinking it would flop. They offered the gig to Medico and he took it. Of course his mask was white, not silver, so a silver-masked villain was added to the script to justify the title. It was a hit and was subsequently edited into a feature length film.

El Medico's first movie listed above, made in 1952, is available on DVD.

Here's his next Texas appearance the night after the above San Antonio clip:

The Corpus Christi Times
Corpus Christi, Texas
Thursday September 27, 1956


PEPPER AND SHEIK MEET AT TOWN HALL

The Sheik of Ababy and Pepper Gomez get another shot at each other tonight at promoter Barney Myers' Town Hall wrestling main event.

Last week the Sheik was disqualified for roughing up Gomez, the Texas State Heavyweight Champion, and referee Otto Kuss and nearly causing a riot at ringside.

This bout, too, will be for the state championship. Two out of three falls will decide it.

The semi-final brings in a brand new personality, Suni War Cloud, against Hercules while the second prelim pits Doug Donovan against Herbie Freeman.

"Assassinator", or more properly, El Medico, makes his first local showing in the 8:30 opener against Red Donovan.

...the results:

The Corpus Christi Times
Corpus Christi, Texas
Friday September 28, 1956


GOMEZ KEEPS STATE CROWN

Pepper Gomez was still in possession of his Texas state wrestling crown today after putting down the challenge of the Sheik of Araby at Town Hall.

Gomez and the Sheik split the first two falls last night but the champ came back to trap his rival in the ring ropes within one minute to go to win it.

Suni War Cloud whipped the mighty Hercules inside of seven minutes with an Indian deathlock - naturally.

Doug Donovan and Herbie Freeman struggled for 15 minutes before finally settling for a draw.

El Medico made an auspicious debut by defeating Red Donovan in the opener.

After a few weeks around the horn here's the angle were El Medico broke loose on top:

The Galveston (Texas) Daily News
Thursday October 18, 1956


MASKED GRAPPLER SET IN MAIN EVENT HERE

The newest storm on the Texas wrestling scene comes to Galveston Thursday night.

The newcomer comes from Mexico City, hides his idenity behind a white mask and is known as El Medico. He will tangle with veteran Paul Boesch in the main event on Promotor Norm Clark's weekly wrestling card at the City Auditorium.

El Medico, a 230-pounder, is the hottest grappler to come out of Mexico in the last five years. He has only been in Texas a few weeks but he has appeared all over Central and South America. He has challenged all-comers to unmask him but to date no foe has succeeded in removing his mask.

The man studied to be a doctor but switched to wrestling when he found the life more exciting. His knowledge of anatomy has made him a terror in the ring. While he could depend on scientific holds to win his bouts, he prefers to be rough and injure opponents.

El Medico has already established a new record for unpopularity. It's not that he isn't a good wrestler, it's the tactics he uses and the ornery temperment he displays which makes the fans hate him so much.

In addition to being a wrestler, he was once a member of Mexico City's police department. After that he was employed to instruct Mexican Army officers in judo tactics and hand-to-hand fighting.

A few weeks ago Medico made his debut to Texas mat fans by suddenly going beserk when sportscaster Boesch was interviewing him before Houston TV cameras. He attacked an innocent bystander, knocking him out, then he knocked Boesch down and severely beat him. Later Boesch issued a challenge to settle the issue in the ring.

The main event feature match is set for a winner-take-all basis, 2 out of 3 falls, with a 1 hour time limit.

Four other matches complete the card. The semifinal is a tag team event, one fall to a finish, that pits Len Crosby and Stu Gibson against Leo Garibaldi and Argentina Zuma. These four men meet earlier in singles bouts: Crosby vs. Zuma and Gibson vs. Garibaldi.

The 8:30 p.m. opening match sends Jim LaRock against Red Donovan, former state junior heavyweight champion.

...the results:

The Galveston (Texas) Daily News
Friday October 19, 1956


EL MEDICO USES ELBOW SMASHES TO KNOCK BOESCH OUT

Rough action was predicted for Norm Clark's wrestling show Thursday night and a crowd of 1,500 fans watched just that and a little more besides.

A doctor had to be called in for the main event feature, one battler had to be disqualified and still another match went to a 20-minute draw. So fans got satisfaction no matter what kind of outcome they liked to see.

A five bout wrestling card was put on, one of the largest here in several weeks. El Medico and Paul Boesch, who haven't been the best of friends recently, were matched against each other in the main event.

A few weeks ago El Medico was appearing before Houston TV cameras when Boesch tried to interview him. Suddenly Medico went beserk, knocked out an innocent bystander, then turned on Boesch. The veteran suffered a severe beating from the masked man from Mexico City. Thus Boesch proposed the match for Thursday night.

He further stipulated that the winner should receive all the purse for both contestants except for one dollar. But he lived to regret his planning.

As it came out, El Medico won the meeting in 15 minutes, and, instead of a two-out-of-three fall match, the bout was cut to one fall. Medico pounded Boesch with a series of terrific elbow smashes to the back of his head and Boesch soon fell unconscious to the canvas. A doctor was called in to examine him and ruled he was not able to continue the match. Thus the masked man was awarded the victory and Boesch was unable to settle the score for his earlier beating.

In the opening match of the evening, Red Donovan won over Jim LaRock in 12 minutes with a series of knee lifts to the stomach and a body press. This was a rough match all the way through with Donovan supplying most of the roughness.

Two single matches followed with big Len Crosby meeting Argentina Zuma and Stu Gibson battling with Leo Garibaldi.

The Gibson - Garibaldi match went to a 20-minute draw and was also very rough. Gibson supplied most of the rough play.

Then Zuma met Crosby and won in eight minutes when Crosby was disqualified by referee Marvin Jones. Crosby's manager, Count Rossi, kept bothering Zuma and Jones finally put Crosby out of the match because of the interference.

Zuma and Garibaldi teamed to meet Crosby and Gibson in the semifinal, no time limit, tag team match. It didn't last long as Crosby won over Garibaldi in 12 minutes with a series of body slams and a body press.

Elbowing opponents to the back of their heads rendering them unconscious was Medico's finisher. I've been reading a lot about him on the newspaper archives site.

Would you guys say during his Texas run Medico was on the same level star wise as Pepper Gomez?

Was his elbowing finisher similar to the finisher Johnny Valentine employed at times during his career? I think the mags referred to it as the atomic skull crusher.

Here's something I found on a lucha history blog. I didn't want to join it so I had to use google cache to get the info. Credit to the person that wrote it.

Médico Asesino
When listing the all time great heavyweights in Mexico, the names that are quickly pointed out by most fans are Mil Máscaras, Canek and Dos Caras, and if we only count track record and not work quality, Cien Caras. But when coming up with any respectful list, in this select group we need to include Médico Asesino, the lost great heavyweight in Mexico.

Cesáreo Manríquez González, Medico's real name, was born on August 27, 1920 in Chihuahua, Chihuahua. Details with lucha libre birthdates are sketchy and several of the ones in this webpage are likely to be wrong, with the actual "real" magazines being at fault for some of the mistakes, but this one is 100% correct as it was taken off a copy of Medico's birth certificate.

At age five, Cesáreo moved to Torreón, Coahuila, where he studied first grade at the "Escuela Centenario". When he was a teen, he had his first job in the business, as he was the timekeeper at the old local Palacio de los Deportes where Giraldo del Hierro was the promoter. He then moved on to be a referee, and sometimes it provided for funny visuals because he was huge compared to all of the wrestlers. Del Hierro took notice of this and offered young Cesáreo, who had a day job as a bus driver, a spot in the roster as a full-time wrestler, as many times during his free time he hanged out with the wrestlers around the gym where he was being trained just for fun. The three luchadores that would be considered his maestros were Verdugo (the original one, not to be confused with Pirata Morgan's brother), Joe Marín and Polo Torres.

He wound up making his debut as "Don Cesáreo". He had the size but was not the most exciting of wrestlers, so to speak, as he wasn't a "natural" who learned fast. But he kept wrestling in several arenas around the country, until a year later he made it to Guadalajara where he wrestled for Elías Simón.

Historically, Simón (who ran shows at the Arena Oblatos and the Plaza de Toros El Progreso) is one of the local promoters of the old days that had a good eye for new talent. He saw that Cesáreo needed to spice up his act and gave him the name of "El Asesino", wearing black trunks, boots and mask.

Simón sent him to Monterrey to wrestle for Jesús "Chucho" Garza. He later wrestled as La Bestia (not to be confused with the wrestler with the same name at Arena Mexico in the mid 60s that lost his mask to Rayo de Jalisco) but on September 23, 1945 lost his mask against local idol and later international star Rito Romero at the Plaza de Toros El Progreso in Guadalajara, Jalisco. Unmasked, his status dropped and ended up going into retirement, working as a transporter. Things weren't actually going bad for him at all and he was financially secure, but he decided to give lucha libre another try, and asked his old boss Garza for a spot in the "carteleras" again.

With his natural size and ability, he was a diamond in the rough, but Garza still hadn't figured out how to make him a star until Televicentro (now Televisa) decided to show wrestling on TV. Garza booked Cesáreo for the first taping, who arrived to the studio/arena and didn't see his name in the line-ups. He went to ask Garza about it, but Garza told him not to worry while giving him a black suitcase, black mask and a white medic vest. Then he said "Now, you'll become El Médico Asesino".

Under that guise he made his debut on February 9, 1952 teaming with Wolf Ruvinskis to beat Enrique Llanes and Tonina Jackson... and he was an instant hit, thanks to his heel mannerisms and timing, his fierce attitude and his overall impressive wrestling ability.

Now, the first wrestling TV star in the history of lucha in Mexico was born! Just like in the early 90s non-fans would turn on their TV's to watch Octagon and Vampiro, from 1952 to 1955, every Saturday, turning on the TV at 8:30 PM to watch the luchas of Televicentro with El Médico Asesino, was like a ritual.

Also in 1952, Médico was the star of a movie called "El Enmascarado de Plata", written by José G. Cruz, directed by René Cardona and produced by Filmex. The movie originally was a vehicle for El Santo, whose comic strip had been published by Cruz during several months by that point. Santo rejected the offer and the role was given to the man the movie industry saw as the number two star in wrestling. After this movie, Médico also appeared in "El Luchador Fenómeno" and "La Bestia Magnifica" (in this one, as a wrestling action stuntman for Crox Alvarado). Even after his death, his image was still used on a couple other genre films.

Médico eventually changed his attire to his most famous all-white clothing, and dressed that way, formed vicious heel teams with Carnicero Butcher, El Espectro and El Bulldog. He also was the first wrestler in Mexico to ever have a woman with him at ringside, a pretty lady that went by the name "La Enfermera del Médico Asesino". This idea wasn't seen with good eyes by some, so she was somewhat "replaced" later with El Enfermero, a good brawler and technician of his era, who later became his most famous tag team partner as well as his best friend outside the ring.

During his Televicentro run, his major match was on Spring of 1952 against Gardenia Davis at Plaza México. The legend says that it featued an "impressive sold-out crowd". A record of the real crowd size will probably never be found, but chances are this may have been one of the biggest crowds ever in Mexican wrestling history.

The promotion ran by Chucho Garza, and funded by media mogul Emilio Azcárraga (owner of several TV and radio stations and newspapers, known as the Televicentro imperium) took a final hit when in 1955, Mexico City Mayor Ernesto P. Uruchurtu banned wrestling from TV due to it being a bad influence for the children.

But, unlike other "gimmick workers" or second rate stars whose career as headliners pretty much ended with Televicentro closing shop, Medico was enough of a hot commodity to be taken by the Lutteroths.

His style was unique in that he was around 190 cms, which is monster height for a Mexican (even more so back then), but he could work a technical bout on the mat. His strong point was his brawling, as he could use maneuvers like bodyslams or a swinging full nelson and make it look like he was toying with his opponent like he playing with a rag doll. His most famous finisher was the "castigo a las carótidas", a choke where he'd grab his opponent's neck with his enormous hands and apply pressure on the sides, to theoretically stop the blood influx to the brain from the carotids (the two main arteries on the neck).

Perhaps his most famous career match was on April 27, 1956, at the grand opening of the rebuilt Arena Mexico, when he teamed with El Santo to go over Rolando Vera and Blue Demon in an epic battle where he got over huge because, after defeating their opponents, Medico kept beating them up while the referes unsuccessfully tried to stop him. The semi-main event match that evening was El Enfermero versus El Gladiador.

On July 10, Medico joined forces with Enfermero and Santo, as the first "Ola Blanca" (White Wave) beating Polo Torres, Joe Grant and Blue Demon, also at Arena Mexico. Two days before, he'd headlined a sold-out Arena Coliseo defeating rival Joe Grant in a Super Libre match.

His popularity was such, that the Empresa relaunched the literally dead Heavyweight division, that hadn't largely meant much since the 30s when it was used as a promotional tool to push Charro Aguayo. Asesino beat Gran Lothario (José Lothario) in a tournament final on September 7 at Arena Mexico to capture the National Heavyweight championship that he'd never lose.

That same year he started wrestling in Texas, through the Garza connection, where he was simply known as El Medico. He was pushed quickly to the top as a foe for the local Latin star, Pepper Gomez, who he beat right away for the NWA Texas Heavyweight Title on October 19 in Houston. Medico's initial short stay lasted more than two years, with him holding the NWA Texas belt a grand total of five times, as well as the NWA Texas tag team titles two times with Pepper Gomez, as they had an in-ring friendship-hate relationship that went back and forth at least twice.

Other famous feuds he had in Texas were against Duke Keomuka and Johnny Valentine, whose hard-hitting style mixed well with Medico's rough style. Valentine and Medico, who was the tecnico here, often faced each other in the famous Houston City Auditorium in 2 out of 3 falls matches featuring plenty of blood. The popularity of this rivalry was such, that they headlined over local hero Pepper Gomez. Both wrestlers were protected in the feud, as then Valentine beat Medico on July 12, 1957, Medico had his foot on the ropes, and two weeks later (July 26), Valentine lost in the third fall after the match was ended via blood stoppage.

By this point, Medico was the highest positioned wrestler on the cards along with Gomez, Valentine and Don Leo Jonathan, and it was very extremely rare to see him lower than in the semi-main event. The city was in such fire, than they ran the bigger Houston Coliseum for bigger matches, which usually meant Lou Thesz coming to town to defend the NWA World Heavyweight Title against one of the top guns.

Medico got a total of four Heavyweight title shots against Thesz, the most famous one on August 9, 1957 at the Morris Sigel 41st Anniversary Show, where Thesz went over Medico in 3 falls via DQ. That show drew 11,000 fans and turned 5,000 away. To put things in contrast, when Jonathan challenged Thesz a month before, the house was of 9,200 fans. Medico's other recorded shots against Thesz were on December 14, 1956 in Houston, Feburary 28, 1957 in San Antonio and August 21, 1957 in Corpus Christi.

It's also interesting that around this time, El Medico got El Santo to work middle of the card matches at the Coliseum. Santo was well protected, even though he did jobs. On the other hand, Gory Guerrero was in the first or second matches usually losing to wrestlers without a name like Luigi Macera. Also of note is that on July 1, 1957, Guerrero lost against Medico cleanly in the third match from the top.

Being in Houston in 1958, he started feeling ill, and returned home. Back in Torreón he got examined, and during surgery in 1959 in Monterrey he got diagnosed with a very advanced cancer that his family always kept a secret from him. The strongman's looks quickly deteriorated, and Tonina Jackson (who was one of his best friends) and Jesús Garza convinced him to get a life insurance just in case something happened to him. Médico, not knowing how little time he had left, always refused, saying that he'd gain the weight back up and return to Houston where he would earn top money again.

On June 16, 1960, less than a year after the diagnosis, Medico died in his hometown, weighing less than 50 kilograms. He spent most of his latter months playing dominoes with his friends, such as Espanto II, Tonina Jackson, and even El Santo who also came to visit him. He saved the money he made in Texas and he wisely got life insurance, so his widow Socorro Silva and his five kids (ranging from 1-12 years of age) were able to build a new home and didn't suffer economically after his death. He was also very well liked by his peers, and the wrestler's syndicate held a major benefit show for him in Guadalajara. With the money collected, all of the kids were able to study and it's curious how the wife of Medico, after his death, worked as an "Enfermera" at a local hospital.

The news of his death made national headlines, equal to a policitian or movie star dying, and the following days, pictures of Polo Torres, Broadway Venus and Tonina Jackson crying made it to the lucha magazines. What made it unusual is that all three of them had lost hair matches against him and they were his worst enemies inside the ring, even though they were among his best friends in real life. El Enfermero was working at Arena Coliseo in Monterrey when Ciclón Veloz, the promoter, told him the news. Enfermero sat on the floor and started crying, ending a tale of friendship that would be written over and over again in the Box y Lucha magazine historical section decades after it actually happened.

None of Medico's son followed in his steps, and even though there has been (and there is) several wrestlers called Hijo del Médico Asesino and Médico Asesino Jr., they aren't "authorized" juniors.

On April of 1989, Médico was inducted at the Mexico City Box y Lucha Commission "Hall of Fame", but this hall has been largely been ignored and forgotten.

I've seen a overhead photo of the 1952 Plaza de Toros card with Asesino Medico. I'll attempt to post it from the old magazine, it appears to be a sellout. Or at least close enough to where it would not be a huge lie. Though it does not appear to have seating on the bullring floor.

Available seating for Plaza de Toros is about 42,000. So it would be one of the largest crowds for wrestling in North America. This is the same building that Konnan and Cien Caras sold out. With seating on the floor they put about 50,000 people in the building.
