We are very sad to learn about the passing of Super Porky. He was 58-years-old, and no cause of death has been revealed at this time.

Mas Lucha revealed that Super Porky, also known as Jose Luis Alvarado Nieves, has passed away. He was a veteran in Mexican wrestling and the tributes are now pouring in for him. He went as Brazo de Plata and Super Porky in the ring.

He made his pro wrestling debut in 1977 as a masked wrestler with the name Brazo de Plato, which translates to Silver Arm. He teamed with his brother Brazo de Oro, or Golden Arm.

After joining CMLL in 1985, he did not leave the promotion for over 20 years. He adopted a comedic gimmick and then took on the name Super Porky. That is the name many pro wrestling fans know him as to this day.

He did sign a WWE contract in 2005 and was brought in to help the cruiserweight division, but he was later released in 2006.

Our thoughts go out to Super Porky’s friends, family, and fans during this difficult time.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
