Norberto Salgado Salcedo (born March 10, 1958) is a retired Mexican luchador (professional wrestler), best known under the ring name Pierroth, Jr.. Salgado made his professional wrestling debut on July 1, 1984, working as an Luchador Enmascarado, or masked wrestler, using the name Pierroth, Jr. Over the years Salgado has worked for Mexican professional wrestling promotions Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), and International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG) as well as making several tours with the Puerto Rico-based World Wrestling Council (WWC). In 1997 and 1998 Salgado made several appearances for the World Wrestling Federation as part of the AAA/WWF talent exchange agreement between the two companies.[1] He lost his mask as a result of losing a match to La Parka.[2] In the late 1990s Pierroth became "Comandante Pierroth", leader of a faction of Puerto Rican wrestlers in CMLL, despite being born in Mexico. Due to ill health Salgado retired from wrestling in 2008.[1]

Pierroths in professional wrestling[edit]

Over the years several wrestlers have used the name "Pierroth", or variations on that name, in professional wrestling.

  • Pierrot I and Pierrot II – not related to Pierroth, Jr. A tag team from the late 1970s–1980s
  • Pierroth, Jr. / Pierroth – There is no documentation of an original "Pierroth" that Salgado took the name off.
  • Hijo del Pierroth (I) – Salgado's son, the name literally translates as "the son of Pierroth", sometimes worked as "Pierroth, Jr." as well.
  • Hijo del Pierroth (II) – after an injury to the original Hijo del Pierroth a new person used the name and mask, this is the wrestler formerly known as "Salsero" and now works as "Pierko el Boricua" after giving up the Pierroth name.
  • Pierroth, Jr. – Not a son of Salgado, originally portrayed by wrestler Rey Vikingo and later replaced by the original Mosco De La Merced, who now wrestles as X-Fly
  • Pierroth II – Isaac Pedro Gonzalez Nuñez lost his mask against Canek Jr, now wrestling as El Anticristo[3]
  • Pierrothito – a Mini who wrestles as a smaller version of Pierroth, Jr.
  • Comandante Pierroth – debuted for CMLL in May 2013, a wrestler formerly known as Toro Blanco and Poder Mexica[4]

Since early 2009 only Pierroth II and Pierrothito have used the Pierroth name, all others have stopped using the name.
