Aristóteles Radamés Coccó Flores (May 13, 1954 – April 12, 2012)[1][2] was a Mexican professional wrestler, or luchador, best known for working under the ring name Masakre (Spanish for Massacre) in Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). As Masakre he was a member of the wrestling group Los Infernales along with MS-1 and El Satánico and a founding member of the group Los Intocables along with Pierroth, Jr. and Jaque Mate. By the mid-1990s Coccó began working for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) where he used a variety of more comical ring personas such as Drakula, Yeti and Coco Rosa

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Aristóteles Radames Cocco Flores made his professional wrestling debut in 1983 under the ring name "Masakre". In his debut year he was paired up with MS-1 and given the ring persona of "MS-2"; Coccó was not the first, not the last wrestler to team with MS-1 under the name "MS-2", but the team would later lead to Masakre being brought in to replace Pirata Morgan as part of Los Infernales along with MS-1 and El Satánico.[3] Masakre and MS-1 teamed up to defeat Los Hermanos Dinamita (Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000) to win the Mexican National Tag Team Championship.[4] MS-1 and Masakre defended the Mexican National Tag Team titles for just over a year until losing them to Atlantis and Ángel Azteca on April 6, 1988.[4] El Satánico left Los Infernales as he began focusing more on singles matches and MS-1 and Masakre began arguing, then fighting after the two of them lost the tag team titles thus ending Los Infernales. MS-1 and Masakre faced off in a series of matches, culminating with a headline Luchas de Apuestas, hair vs. hair match at Arena Mexico that MS-1 won.[3] After Los Infernales split up Masakre formed a Trio with Pierroth, Jr. and Jaque Mate, called Los Intocables (the Untouchables). Los Intocables feuded with Los Infernale, winning and losing the CMLL World Trios Championship from Los Infernales.[5]

By the mid-1990s Los Intocables had broken up and Masakre had left CMLL to work for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA). Initially he worked under the ring name Drakula, portraying a vampire character.[6] Later on he was repackaged as Yeti, complete with a furry white full bodysuit that gave the appearance of being an actual Yeti.[6][7] Flores disappeared from the wrestling scene altogether.

Death[edit]

Coccó died from spinal cancer on April 12, 2012.[1][2]
